If the traditional box of chocolates isn’t going to cut it, throw on your apron and mix up a treat for your sweetie yourself. At the Loveless Cafe, we love giving people new ideas for holiday celebrations.
We offer Belgian Waffle & Pancake mix that can be turned into a Valentine’s Day treat. Nothing says, “I love you” like fluffy, red velvet waffles.
The Loveless Cafe Pancake & Waffle mix, with the addition of simple ingredients such as cocoa powder, can bring the “sweet” side of Valentine’s Day to the breakfast table. And if you need to send a gift, our Belgian Waffle & Pancake Mix comes in a burlap bag, and we’ve included the red velvet recipe on the card. We invite you to embrace our Southern roots with the Loveless Cafe for a unique, sweet and very Southern holiday.
