Valentine’s Day: Dessert spots

Camille McCurry and Grace Lee


Popbar is a small customizable popsicle store in Rowland Heights with a casual atmosphere perfect for a date. The interior is decorated in a somewhat minimalistic style, utilizing earthy tones and simple designs to create an inviting atmosphere. Their popsicles are suitable for everyone, seeing as they have a wide variety of flavors, including chocolate, matcha, hazelnut, dulce de leche and more. Popsicles are then dipped and drizzled in milk, white or dark chocolate, and rolled in your choice of nuts, candies, cereals or granolas. The average popsicle costs around $5, making it a great choice for those who are looking for a place that won’t break the bank.




Dripp Coffee Bar is a perfect coffee shop date for warm drink cravings.  Located at the Shoppes in Chino Hills, Dripp offers an extensive menu filled with coffee, tea and pastries. If you’re feeling up for a cool, sweet treat instead, you can opt to get a scoop or two of ice cream sandwiched between two warm cookies. Whatever you order, you can dig in comfortably seated at one of the indoor or outdoor tables.



Nobody wants to spend their Valentine’s Day date in a classroom, but Class 302, located in Rowland Heights, makes dining in a classroom-themed restaurant worth it. The restaurant offers Taiwanese drinks and dishes, such as iced watermelon tea, popcorn chicken and sweet potato fries, perfect for a lunch date. The casual ambience allows couples to enjoy their date while digging in a bowl of shaved ice, which comes in a variety of mango, strawberry, coffee and green tea flavors. Customers can build their own shaved snow by adding up to four toppings, including red bean, grass jelly, aloe and caramel egg pudding. The restaurant quickly attracts a crowd, so if you want to try Class 302’s delectable desserts, getting there as early as possible is the best course of action.
