10 Spots to Feed the Heart in Chicago

The season of love always comes in the midst of a frosty winter in Chicago. All the more reasons to heat things up. This Valentine's Day, browse our shortlist of desserts, bites, and entire meals that are sure to put you and your lover(s) in the mood. 

Big Fat Cookie

Big.fat.cookies are made in very small batches with the greatest attention to every single detail, hand formed and each dough ball is weighed, individually wrapped, and available in seasonal favorites! Our favorites are the rosy cookies which clearly indicate that it is cookies over flowers.

There's eccentric specials and there's fusion foods, but our heart is set on one particular mac and cheese pizza, the original found only here. What makes things more LOVEly? Heart shaped pies for Valentine's Day.

Dip and Sip Donuts
Childhood style doughnuts that are made fresh and daily, with glazes made from scratch. Also serving locally roasted Metropolis Coffees.  Who doesn't want a pink doughnut to profess their love?

A next gen restaurant and bar with over the top topped hot chocolates and intriguingly made cocktails in whimsical glassware, this is your staple for every holiday. Go get the Cupid's Cacao for Valentine's Day and stroll through the pink themed Candyland.

The comfort food of pizza, Quad Cities-style pie has a crust made with dark-roasted malt for a slight sweetness. Topped with cheeses and spicy sauces, the pizza is then sliced into strips with scissors, making for a homely, unique, and tasty experience.  The love experience has pizza made to share for two. Two sharing mozzarella sticks can make it, with a mini cheesecake to close the night.

Sisters Meg and Molly Svec are known for making pies that area seasonal, tasty and oh so fun! For Valentine's Day, treat yourselves to chocolate cream pie with strawberry whip cream.

Stan's Donuts & Coffee 

Made from scratch donuts delivery comes with a cute pink van serving pink doughnuts and pink hot cocoa! 

Stephanie Izard has rebooted her West Loop bakery with whacky and unusual flavor combos, like a chocolate pie with shoestring potatoes, French silk and pecan and cupcakes that taste like pancakes. Get decadent and artistic cupcakes, cakes, or simply indulgent giant heart cookies.

Vanille in Lincoln Park offers authentic French pastries, desserts, and cakes by chef Sophie Evanoff. While they have an array of pastries, macarons, cakes and more all year round, the fun, 3D and whimsical designs of the hearty Valentine's cakes are a winner all the way to the heart.

Marshmallows in all sorts of flavors for dunking into hot chocolate, desserts, or eating them by themselves! Heart shaped marshmallows coated in pink sugar, just in time for Valentine's Day.
