Drop lights, hanging flowers, and elaborate backdrops–no, we’re not talking about a wedding reception setup. These items are what you’ll find in coffee shops and restaurants nowadays, making them both Instagram-worthy and the perfect place to bring your bae. And since it’s only six days before Valentine’s Day, we give you a list of dining spots with romantic, elaborate interiors that are not only a feast for your tummy but your eyes as well.
If there’s one thing besides coffee that Coffee Project does best, it’s their interior design. All of Coffee Project branches share the same theme–romantic, cozy, and stylish. Here, flowers everywhere are a common sight–on the ceiling, on the wall, on the tables, and on almost every corner. Add to that a set of drop lights or hanging lights strategically placed in the coffee shop. Hanging bikes with flowers or on the wall is not unusual here too, giving the place a hip yet dreamy vibe.
Currently, Coffee Project has 13 branches in the metro and 8 in different provinces. Besides taking pictures of its awesome interiors, ordering their specialty drinks is a must here too.
Le Petit Souffle
If you prefer a restaurant over a coffee shop for your Valentine date, Le Petit Souffle is your best choice. Its branch at Century Mall in Kalayaan Avenue, Makati boasts a rustic garden theme, and the restaurant’s design will surely leave your date impressed. Greenery is everywhere; in fact, you’ll find trees inside the restaurant itself. Its focal point though are the hanging lights and plants over a table countertop. You’ll also find hanging rolling pins here, which add a unique touch to the French-Japanese-inspired restaurant.
As its interiors is satisfying to the eyes, so are its dishes to the tummy. You’ll enjoy French-Japanese comfort food here as well as signature desserts.
The Cheesecake Fairy
This coffee shop at Evia Lifestyle Center in Alabang seems to have been sprinkled with fairy dust. The enchanting shop features hanging roses, flowers, and other plants.
Matching its abundant flowers are a ton of sweets you can feast on–from cakes and pastries to a huge selection of ice cream flavors. Almost everything here bursts with color–the coffee cups, throw pillows, walls, couches and chairs, and yes, even the food.
