Three-Course Valentine’s Day Dinner at Cafe a la C’Art


Think back to one or more of your most joyous dining occasions.

Got it in your head? Can you recall what stuck out? Perhaps it was the food alone or a combination of factors – dim lighting and a great glass of wine.

But more than likely, it had something to do with the company.

This Valentine’s Day, treat your significant other to a night to remember.

Cafe a la C’Art chef Nicholas Lexvold has prepared a special three course feast for Valentines this year. Each course offers three options to choose from, which is a great way to enjoy a prix fix menu.

Dinner is $45 per person and reservations can be made by contacting the restaurant directly at (520) 628-8533.

Lastly, if you can’t make it on Valentine’s Day, you’re in luck. The cafe will offer the Valentine’s Day prix fixe menu through February 17. On top of that, both Thursday and Friday after Valentine’s Day (Feb. 15 and 16 respectively) will feature Cafe a la C’Art house band, Connie Brannock & Friends.
