Chocolate, chocolate, and more chocolate

It sounds cliche but who wouldn’t want to pick up some delicious chocolates on V-Day this year? Old Towne Orange is lucky to have an amazing bakery with all the chocolatey sweets you can imagine.

Who has been to Haute Sweets Baking Co? Behind the glass counter, you will find brownies, truffles, cookies, and more.

They often have huge candy apples – which are A class for Haute Sweets. If you visit them this V-Day, you’ll be sure to find a delicious treat for you and your Valentine to snack on while taking a walk in the Plaza.


And of course, what would Valentine’s Day be without some flowers for your mom, sister, or loved one? The Dizzy Daisy is our favorite stop for all flower needs because they work with your exact budget, size, and color choices.

They make custom arrangements AND have pre-made arrangements if you are in a hurry. They take orders online or over the phone and will help you create the most beautiful bouquet this Valentine’s Day! Order now!


A few restaurants around the circle occasionally have a Valentine’s day special! This year, Citrus City Grille is hosting Dinner For Two between 4-9PM! They will be offering a romantic 4-course meal for you and your Valentine – so be sure to reserve your table here!
