1. Favaloro’s Big Night Bistro

Nothing says classy date-night like dinner for two at an Italian trattoria, and Favaloro’s Big Night Bistro in Pacific Grove, on the tip of the scenic Monterey Peninsula, has got you covered. Wow your date with top notch classics like cioppino, ravioli tre formaggie, gnocchi Bolognese and others paired with a diverse selection of wines from the heart of Italy. Save room for coffee and sweets on the outdoor patio at the neighboring Café Ariana and really bring it home with a scoop of gelato! After dinner, walk the picturesque downtown or head for the coastline for a sunset to remember.

2. The Dunes at Asilomar State Beach

Want to get outside? The boardwalk at Asilomar Beach and Conference grounds affords unbeatable panoramic views of the surrounding area, especially at sundown. Celebrate togetherness with a sunset selfie from the beach or hike up the winding boardwalk and enjoy the spectacle from the benches at the top. No matter which one you choose, you and your special someone are in for a memorable treat!

3. Picnic at Lovers Point Park

The park sits on small peninsula that affords 360 degree views of the Monterey Bay and the best view of the Pacific Grove coastline as you’re likely to get anywhere. Stop by the Lovers Point Beach Café for some coffee and waffles or pack it in and eat on the beach! Whatever you decide, it’s hard to go wrong with Lovers Point!

4. Dinner at Fifi’s Bistro Café

Bring your date the tastes of France with a visit to Fifi’s Bistro Café! Serving up classic European and French dishes with a wine selection to match, Fifi’s is the perfect spot to go classy. Owned and operated by Calvin and Michele Wilkes, Fifi’s is as authentic as it gets when it comes to dinner for two a Francaise in Pacific Grove.

5. Curl Up with Coffee and A Book at BookWorks

Not ready for the pressure of a swanky restaurant dinner or picnic on the beach? Opt for casual coffee and a book at Bookworks on 667 Lighthouse Avenue. The bright atmosphere and many comfortable couches offer the perfect blend of the cozy and casual. Enjoy their Organic Fair Trade Coffee and Tea or split one of their sizeable homemade pastries with your date before perusing the neighboring bookstore.
