Share Something Sweet

Madeleine's Place

Skip the generic box of chocolates this year. Instead, treat the one you love to something fresh and local.

B’s Cheesecakes offers personal size and whole cheesecakes in unique flavors.

Maybe you can’t visit the City of Love this year. However, you can visit Madeleine’s Place, a local French bakery in Downtown Clarksville offering a large variety of pastries and desserts. If you prefer a cold treat, head to Golly G’s for hand-scooped ice cream or La Michoacana Delicias for paletas.


Get Cozy Over Coffee

If your special someone’s love language is quality time, treat them to a drink and intentional conversation at one of our local coffee shops.

Plumb Line Coffee, Sanctuary on Main, The Amsterdam Local Cafe, and Two Birds Coffee Co. all have great atmospheres.

Lovely Libations

Instead of grabbing the same old bottle at the grocery store, try something local.

For wine lovers, head to The Vine on Franklin, Trazo Meadery, or Beachaven Vineyards and Winery. Prefer beer? Try one of Clarksville’s breweries. More of a liquor person? Check out Old Glory Distilling Co.Leatherwood Distillery, or Three Rifles Distilling Co.
