Valentine’s Day is quickly approaching and we have a few “sweet treat” ideas to help you ask that special someone, “Will you be my Valentine?“. We list our top 6 locally favorite bakeries, pastry, and candy shops in Munich.
Sometimes, Valentine’s Day gets a bad rap for being highly commercial, but it doesn’t always have to be so over-the-top. Enjoying the moment and taking the time to show that special person or people in your life that you appreciate them is what we feel this day is really about!
And there is no better way to express this appreciation than by indulging in something sweet with your Valentine(s) over a warm cup of coffee, tea or even a hot toddy!
So give yourself permission to stray a bit from your New Year’s diet and enjoy the moment!
Check out our top picks for THE BEST…
