Although Valentine’s Day is supposed to be about celebrating your sweetie, we view February 14th as an excuse to indulge in all things sweet and cheap. So this week, Vancity Buzz and ChowMeNow are sharing some romantic eats for couples (or just yourself!) to enjoy.

Although bacon and eggs may not seem like the most romantic of foods, if you’ve forgot to book dinner reservations why not opt for a breakfast date instead? Since Valentine’s Day falls on a Saturday take advantage of the morning off and treat your honey to this huge plate of food for just $2.95!
