Your Dinner + Our Flirty Menu = Cozy Café for Two

We’ve hooked you up with your own printable menu and the best part is the PRICES! Instead of using cash, your spouse is 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. Fun, right?

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!

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

At the end of the meal, you’ll be presenting your spouse with their bill to claim what they owe you. Just check off the appropriate boxes in the included check and let them know that tipping is strongly encouraged! {wink, wink}Couple's Cafe Dinner Date Receipt

Your Dining Room + Our Decor Items = An EXTRA Special Meal  

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 tablecloth, some music, flowers, and maybe a candle or two. You can add our printable heart rings to fancy napkins (or just paper ones!) to add that special touch. Your love is definitely worth a little extra effort.

Finally, leave this little place card at their place setting to give them a little insight into what you have in store!

* 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. Diva Becca did this for Valentine’s Day, and her girls had so much fun getting into character. She dressed them to fit the part with aprons and everything. Her 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 they got to see a great example of dating after marriage!

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

I met my husband, in a beginning ballroom dance class at the age of 15. He was my first crush, my first date, and twelve years (to the day) later we married. Together we enjoy traveling the world, and, of course, going on creative dates! I am a former theatre teacher who now stays at home with a spunky little boy. I love dancing, hosting parties, photography, organizing & chocolate!

  1. My husband and I head up the Marriage Ministry at our church and we our taking the “Couples Cafe” to a higher level. We are offering a date night at our church! We have 30 couples signed up….we will let you know how it goes! Thanks for the ideas!

  2. 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!!

  3. 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!

    1. 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

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

      1. 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.

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

          1. 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!

  5. 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!

  6. 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.

  7. 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!

  8. 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!

  9. I love the idea! Now to see how willing my kids would be with serving….Becca, I always knew you to have great ideas! Nice seeing you on here!

  10. This is an idea I’ve used before but it was no where near as cute as yours. Now with these printables I can make dinner at home that much cuter! Thanks for sharing all the great recipes too! I can’t wait to call a do over on this date!!! PS. Who says this is only good for date nights? I think this printable should be used every time I make dinner!!! lol xox <3
