Couple’s Café


Couples Cafe

Your Dinner + Our Printable = Quick & Fun Date Night

Are you already planning on making dinner tonight?  Perfect!  Just print off this super cute printable to go with it, and you have an instant date night.  Yep, it’s that easy!

Sometimes life gets crazy and we don’t always have time to plan or prepare something super fancy.  But it’s the little things that mean the most.  Just a few minutes of your time can change your usual, normal dinner routine into a night of fun and flirting with your man.  Who doesn’t want that?!

Your Dining Room + Our Flirty Menu = Cozy Café for Two

The idea is that you’re going to be turning your dining room into a restaurant for two.  And we have the perfect (free!) printable to help you do just that.  We’ve hooked you up with your own menu (you’re totally welcome), and the best part is the prices!  Instead of using cash, he’s going to have to pay in affection.  So while a glass of water may only cost him a peck, the salad will add 2 bear hugs to his tab, and the Lasagna entrée will set him back 5 passionate kisses.

Your Man + Our Printable Bill = A Night of Huggin’ & Lovin’

At the end of the meal, you’ll be presenting him with his bill to claim what he owes you.  Just check off the appropriate boxes in the included check and let him know that tipping is strongly encouraged!  {wink, wink}

You can use our menu for a yummy Lasagna dinner, or use the blank menu to customize it with your honey’s favorite meal (or whatever you were already planning on cookin’.)   See?  Totally easy!

And if you have a couple extra minutes to spare, why not make it a little more special?  Go ahead and pull out your nice dishes, a table cloth, some music, and maybe a candle or two.  Your love is definitely worth a little extra effort.

* Tip:   Can’t get a sitter for the kiddos?  Let them in on the fun and ask them to help by being the restaurant servers.  I did this for Valentine’s Day, and my girls had so much fun getting into character.  We dressed them to fit the part with aprons and everything.   And my 5-year-old was waiting by the door for-ever for her daddy to come home so she could welcome him to “Cupid’s Cafe.”  They had a lot of fun, and I got to show them how special their daddy is to me.

Then after dinner, send those little ones to bed so you can claim what he owes you!! {wink}

    We did this date tonight! We both LOVED it! I surprised my hubby with the menu when he got home and he was very impressed! Thank you for this site! We have been married for almost 6 years with one child and we are kind of tired of the same old “dinner and a movie” date! Excited for next week’s date!

  11. Megan says:

    My boyfriend and I just moved in together and for our first dinner in the new apartment I used the Couples Cafe printables and even decorated the plate with rose petals as shown above. He LOVED it and I had so much fun choosing which ingredients would cost what…I’m going to use this again and recommend it to friends, it’s the little things that make a big difference THANK YOU!

  12. Karin says:

    I absolutely love this idea! Thanks for sharing it. We’re moving this weekend and I’ve been wondering what I could do for a date (that didn’t require any extra unpacking) after we’ve gotten everything moved in and I think this will work perfectly! I may even try the pork chops recipe my guy’s been wanting me to.

  13. Sarina Sarina says:

    I just wanted to let you know I did this for my husband last night. He loved it! It turned a normal dinner into something special. You are the best!

  14. Jennifer says:

    Love the idea but I can’t access the printable … all I get is a blank screen when i click the link. :(

    • Becca Becca says:

      Hmmm…. are you still having trouble now? I just tried and it worked for me.

      • Jennifer says:

        Nope, still won’t load. And I even shut everything down and restarted my computer (as sometimes that fixes things like this). Just get a blank page.

        • Becca Becca says:

          Sorry you’re having trouble, Jennifer. Everything seems to be working on our end. I just shot you a quick email about it.

          • Natalie says:

            Maybe you don’t have adobe reader? thats how mine open, using that program. if you don’t have it, you can get it for free. just look for it on google!

  15. Ashley says:

    Is there any way to type on the printable? I love everything except for the drinks and I don’t want to have to handwrite everything in!

    But I am super excited to do this on V-Day with my hubby!! We have a thing at our church after so we really can’t go out to eat. This will be perfect!

    • Becca Becca says:

      Sure Ashley! You can save the printable to your computer and then add in your own text with photoshop or whatever program you have. If you don’t have one, you can get Gimp for free online at or try Hope your V-Dat date is a hit!!! XOXO

  16. Natalie says:

    This is by far, the BEST idea/printable EVER!!! Thank you so much!!! <3

  17. mrs. chino says:

    wow. thats a good idea. i never thought to have a cafe menu and to have him pay with sentimental tokens. i am going to try that when my honey comes home this year… he has been incarcerated and this is a start to making up for a lot of missed loved…. thanks alot!!
