Still scrolling away trying to find some ideas for your romantic date this weekend? Fret not, we have curated a last minute (& money saving) Cafe Guide for Valentine's Day, to melt your worries away.
All the restaurants and popular cafes would have been fully booked by now, but it hardly calls for any reason to feel regretful as they are going to cost a bomb anyway. You will find most of the cafes below pretty secluded and indie, perfect for the romantic hangout. They are also going to serve up their regular goodness at human prices, so read away!
Yet another amazing concept with great design by the same folks behind The Plain and Ronin. Cosy, simplistic and perfect for some hearty brunch and good coffee, for the girlfriends who needs to have the perfect backdrop to their Vday picture.
