Tammie Coe, Fairytale Brownies and Goody Twos Toffee for Valentine's Day

If there's anything good about Valentine's Day, it's that it gives us an excuse to stuff our faces with chocolates, candies and other heart-shaped confections.  
Whether you're looking for a sweet gift or plan on drowning your relationship sorrows in sugar, the following are some of our favorite local spots for Valentine delicacies.

Tammie Coe has a special menu just for all you lovers out there including a  "Sinsational" flourless cake ($22), chocolate-dipped strawberries (3 for $9 or 9 for $27), an itty bitty "Lovers Cake" ($20), and sets of  mini cupcakes and cookies -- all of which are, in Tammie Coe fashion, as beautiful as they are delicious.
Visit Tammie Coe Cakes at 610 E. Roosevelt or order from the Valentine menu online at tammiecoecakes.com/shop.
