Valentine’s Day is just around the corner! If a coffee date at Caffe Luxxe is in the cards for you and your love and you’re looking to make the most of the day, then take some inspiration from our series on date ideas set around the neighborhoods we call home, beginning with our original caffe on Montana Ave. in Santa Monica. After you and your Valentine have sipped your morning cappuccinos, and picked up a bottle (or two!) of sparkling wine to take home, check out some of our favorite date spots in the area.
Hill & Oak Pop Up at Caffe Luxxe
Wednesday, February 14th, 8a - 12p only!
If you can arrange to pop in solo to pick up a surprise gift before you see your date – or you’d prefer to pick out a Valentine’s Day bouquet together over coffee! - our friend Joey of Hill & Oak Florals will be hosting a pop-up bouquet sale at our Montana Ave. caffe on Valentine’s Day morning. Your Valentine will absolutely love the artisan crafted bouquets and single-stem roses.
