Whether you’re looking for a place to hang out with your significant other or your friends this Valentine’s Day, all of these spots are sure to be great options! If you are in need of a place to enjoy the holiday with some food, look no further.
My first cute spot I love to go to is Morning Lavender Cafe. It’s a super cute spot in Tustin, and is known for its Instagram aesthetic and lavender-infused drinks. It has a relaxing ambiance suitable for you and a group of gal pals, or for a date with your significant other. There are tables inside for you to enjoy your drinks and pastries at, floral walls to take pictures, and a boutique for you to shop in! The cafe is located in Old Town Tustin, and it’s a great place to sip on your drinks and while taking a stroll!
If you’re looking for a more formal setting, Gabbi’s Mexican Kitchen in Orange is the perfect spot for a Valentine’s meal. They serve Mexican cuisine, and there are a variety of plates for you to choose from. I have gone here for a Galentine’s Day dinner, and my friends and I absolutely loved it. The food tastes amazing, and the restaurant’s environment is perfect for a dinner for larger groups or an intimate meal for two!
Lastly, if you want to make a bit of an adventure out of Valentine’s Day, the Lab Anti-Mall in Costa Mesa is a cool and artsy spot to head to! There are a lot of really interesting and quirky art installations and pieces throughout this outside mall, places to eat, and vintage stores to shop around in. It’s a bit of a drive, but it’s definitely a one-of-a-kind spot for a date or hangout!
Orange County has a lot of different places to enjoy your time for Valentine’s Day, and hopefully these ideas have given you some options to choose from when it comes to enjoying this holiday with your loved ones!
