2. Brunch in bed
If nothing sounds more romantic than sleeping in and snuggling up with your special someone this Valentine’s Day — make your brunch date a “brunch in bed” event! Get comfy in your favorite PJs, pile on your favorite pillows and blankets, and enjoy the most delicious breakfast foods with the love of your life. What a perfect start to Valentine’s Day!
3. You stole my heart
You stole my heart — and my heart-shaped pancake! Make your special someone all heart-shaped breakfast foods this Valentine’s Day. You can make DIY heart-shaped pancakes, enlist some help with a red, heart-shaped waffle maker, or leave it to the professionals and hire a chef to make your heart-shaped breakfast items.
This date would be made all the more romantic in a Peerspace venue that includes a gorgeous dining room and kitchen area.
For example, check out this kitchen and living area that boasts beautiful views of Mount Rainier and Lake Washington! It is a more than 5,000-square-foot home with floor-to-ceiling windows, two fireplaces, a pool, and killer views. It’s not only gorgeous, but the hosts are super helpful.
Take it from a Peerspace review who shares: “The space was soo beautiful!!! The pictures definitely do not do it justice. It was also soo perfect for our event. The owner and his assistant were also so helpful and kid throughout the whole process. So much natural light which was perfect for pictures and very spacious. Definitely recommend booking this place, you won’t regret it! :)”

4. Chocolate is a breakfast food
There may be rules about what time of day you can crack open a beer — but there certainly aren’t any restrictions on what time you can crack open a candy bar! Satisfy your sweet tooth with chocolate chip pancakes, chocolate croissants, and maybe even just a big ol’ box of Valentine’s Day chocolates.
This is one of our favorite Valentine’s Day brunch ideas for all the chocoholics out there!
5. A picnic brunch
If it’s not too chilly out, consider bringing all your favorite Valentine’s brunch ideas outside for a picnic. You can, of course, opt to have your picnic at the local park but for something a bit more intimate and romantic, consider booking an outdoor Peerspace venue! You can filter venues by amenities like outdoor firepits and gazebos or choose to look at just garden spaces, lawns, or beach settings.
Some hosts even offer great add-on amenities, like at this award-winning garden in Langhorne, PA. Along with the Italian-style gardens brimming with secret nooks and a dining terrace, there are also staff on-site to ensure your brunch is perfect. In fact, you can use the well-equipped kitchen and butler’s pantry for a fun and unique experience!
6. Waffle bar
There’s no limit to what toppings you can add to your brunch waffle! Add a waffle bar to your Valentine’s brunch ideas list and wow your special someone with unlimited toppings and options. You can have classic options like syrups and fruits — or go for some original toppings like sprinkles, marshmallow fluff, nuts, and bacon!
7. Warm up with hot drinks
February weather can be pretty chilly! Make sure to add some fun hot drinks to your Valentine’s Day brunch ideas! Trade in mimosas for mulled wine, or switch up your usually bloody mary for spiked hot cocoa instead. Looking for something a little less sweet? A hot toddy is always a great option!
8. Love you a brunch
If your partner is always stealing the food off your plate, today is the day to let them go for it! Make a shared plate with an array of different brunch items to share. Turn up the heat a notch by feeding them bites of each. Chocolate-covered strawberries are an obvious choice for this one!
Check out our romantic Valentine’s Day photo ideas to perfectly commemorate the day!
9. Some friendly competition
Are you looking for a little bit of friendly competition with your Valentine’s brunch ideas? Start your Valentine’s Day with a brunch cook-off! Start by booking a spacious, well-equipped commercial kitchen on Peerspace. For instance, our friends in NYC can book this fourth-floor private kitchen in Upper Manhattan. It boasts multiple workspaces, professional-grade equipment, and even a private dining area.
Who can make the most scrumptious, original, and well-presented meal? The winner gets to choose the next Valentine’s Day activity. Hopefully, it’s something that makes you both feel like winners!
10. But first … coffee
What’s brunch without coffee? If you and your date are big coffee fans then revolve your brunch date around this tasty drink! Many Peerspace cafe rental venues come with baristas as part of the booking or as an add-on service. Instead of another day of drip coffee at the house, treat your special someone to a great cup of joe in a gorgeous location.
One of our favorite spots is Refuge Coffee Co. in Atlanta. This gem of a venue comes with a comprehensive espresso, coffee, and tea menu. It also has a beautiful story to tell. It was home to the longest-running African-American newspaper in United States history and now prides itself on being a living, breathing, thriving example of Dr. King’s dream!
A Peerspace reviewer who booked this lovely cafe shares: “Great experience! Wonderful location. Very easy to work with and I had support from beginning to end. Thank you.”
11. You’re the one
Turn this Valentine’s Day brunch into the most unforgettable moments of your relationship — with a proposal! We can think of tons of fun ways to incorporate a proposal into a Valentine’s Day brunch, like by having the words “will you marry me?” at the bottom of their coffee cup or written on the plate under your soon-to-be fiance’s brunch meal!
Make sure the setting is just right for this occasion by renting a jaw-droppingly gorgeous Peerspace venue to pop the question. One of the chicest options is this FiDi historic jazz bar in San Francisco. It has a peacock blue and gold color scheme, dim lights, and an irresistible Jazz Age ambiance.
According to Peerspace reviewers, the hosts are happy to accommodate your needs to ensure a romantic proposal. “This space is so impressive! Thanks to the team at Monroe, our event went off without a hitch! Sarah made sure to include a ton of details that really made this party one-of-a kind.”
