Whether you’re shopping for yourself, a loved one, or the man who is literally ghosting you (which, btw, why??), Valerie Confections is a cafe/bakery/chocolate shop and a one-way-ticket to Romance Town. With an excellent assortment of truffles, petit fours, prepackaged charcuterie meats and cheeses, and grab-and-go-gourmet sandwiches, this one-stop-shop is not unlike those “emergency love” kits that can be found in the hotel minibar - there’s something in here for everyone.
