A pink cookie for Valentine's Day in San Jose

Valentine's Day in San Jose

Love your significant other as much as you love San Jose? Trying hard to impress to make them your sweetheart? Let Cupid take his aim by taking your date out on the town with a signature San Jose spin at these Silicon Valley hotspots.


Enjoy a Valentine’s Day brunch at hearty Bill’s Café or charming The Table. Looking for something casual? Get a cup of coffee at Crema on the Alameda – go for the red velvet latte for a festive pink treat. Take your coffee to-go and take a romantic lovers’ stroll at the Municipal Rose Garden. Just remember, only enjoy the flowers – don’t try to pick your own Valentine’s Day bouquet!
