Valentine's Day in Kansas City

Tippin’s Guide to Valentine’s Day in Kansas City

We love helping you make someone’s day special. Valentine’s Day is right around the corner, and we want to help our hometown fans make this Valentine’s Day in Kansas City the best one yet.

Share breakfast together

Most people think about taking someone out to dinner when they consider ways to celebrate Valentine’s Day. Instead, try surprising your valentine with breakfast. As a local Kansas City company, we recommend taking them to a local breakfast café, and we have some great ones to choose from. Consult this list of best breakfast dishes in Kansas City and this recap of Kansas City’s best brunches.

If you don’t want to venture out first thing in the morning, you can either make breakfast, or buy it and bring it home. We pinned some ideas on what to make at home, but if you don’t want to make a mess in the kitchen, we can help. Tippin’s makes a variety of bagels, croissants and quiches. All you have to do is visit your local Hen House Market and pick it up. Just warm and serve for a nice breakfast in bed.

Send or leave messages throughout the day

If you can’t spend all day with your valentine, find ways to send them messages throughout the day. Think beyond text messages and voice mails. Some people get creative and write on fruit. Some people leave post-its everywhere. Others send flowers. And some celebrate team spirit by sending mascots.

Spend the day together exploring

Wherever you live, there will always be somewhere new to explore. For Kansas Citians, the list is endless. If the weather is nice, rent a bike and tour Kansas City on its trails. Consider exploring one of Kansas City’s museums. If you want to be active but the weather is cold, you can now rock climb and sky dive indoors. Make your Valentine’s Day in Kansas City an adventure!

Dine together

If you are a traditional type, you will want to enjoy dinner together. But does that mean you want to go out, bring dinner in, or make dinner? You’ll likely need reservations for Valentine’s Day, so plan ahead if you decide to dine out. Here is a list of some of the most romantic restaurants in Kansas City with options for every budget. And you can’t forget our friend, Jasper Mirabile, serving authentic Italian foods with style at Jasper’s Restaurant.

Another option is calling your local grocery store to see if they have Valentine’s Day specials. Kansas City’s local Hen House Markets offer a complete Dinner For Two that includes an appetizer, salad, entrees, sides, desserts (you can choose a slice of Tippin’s pie), baguette, and a single red rose.

Or you can make dinner for or with your valentine. We pinned some recipe ideas for you. And of course, your favorite Tippin’s pie makes a wonderful way to top off your Valentine’s Day in Kansas City.

However you celebrate, Happy Valentine’s Day from all of us at Tippin’s!
