In February, a month that’s all about sharing love, we thought we would share a few of the things we love about The Waters this time of year. While we have special events and luxurious amenities all year, we have a few special recommendations for you and your loved ones for Valentine’s Day this year. From dining in some of our favorite restaurants in Pike Road, Alabama to having a night in, we want to help you plan a night of fun, love, and romance.
Dining options for Valentine’s Day at The Waters
Southern comfort food with a twist
H2O Café, Market, and General Store in our Town Center is a classic, southern-style restaurant with outdoor seating and cozy indoor tables. Overlooking the Town Square and with views of Lake Cameron, you can also see the beautiful homes of The Waters from H20 Café. The restaurant owners are passionate about using natural ingredients to create delicious meals. H20 Café uses Alabama-sourced ingredients for their sandwiches, salads, soups, sides, desserts, and other food items used for breakfast, lunch, and dinner.
H20 Café is a wonderful place to meet with friends and relax over a glass of wine or craft beer. The casual, welcoming atmosphere also makes it a good place to bring the whole family for pizza and ice cream, or grab a fresh, quickly-made sandwich and lemonade in the middle of a busy day. We also love that their general store and local market is well stocked with convenience items, greeting cards, unique gifts, food, wine, beer, and ice.
For Valentine’s Day, H20 Café’s Chef Kaz has created a unique dinner menu with seatings at 6:00 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. You will want to make your reservation by calling (334) 356-1313 as soon as possible to get your spot. This delicious meal will include roasted dates stuffed with almonds and then wrapped in bacon to start. Next, a salad will feature varietal cabbages and greens with a raspberry vinaigrette, and the main course will include seared beef tenderloin with truffle pepper served with Morrocan style veggies and rice pilaf. The meal will finish off with a fresh mixed berry custard parfait as a delightful ending to your night
A casual dessert in a local joint
Another one of our favorite local places in Pike Road is Hole in the Wall Coffee Shop. Typically open Monday through Saturday from 6:30 a.m. until 11:00, Hole in the Wall offers a wide variety of hot and iced drinks, along with savory and sweet food options. The coffee shop regularly opens up in the evening for date night events that feature drinks, dessert, and live music. Their date night event for Valentine’s Day this year will be no exception.
Enjoying Valentine’s Day at The Waters
After a night out, it’s always nice to come home to a relaxing atmosphere and breathtaking view. We love the idea of heading out for a special meal or drinks and dessert at these wonderful local spots.
For those looking to stay even closer to home to celebrate Valentine’s Day this year, head to one of our piers at sunset for a truly romantic experience. You can also choose from one of our abundant beautiful green spaces and parks throughout The Waters for your own special picnic meal.
Whether you venture out of the neighborhood or have a night in, The Waters is a prime location for all your Valentine’s Day date ideas. Learn more about the many amenities of living at The Waters that you can enjoy this Valentine’s Day and all year long.
