We are always thrilled to bring our brand to life, reaching our guests in new and exciting ways. Celebrating the virtues of the kitchen, farm-to-table cuisine and dedication to quality specialty coffee is always a treat. Under the umbrella of artistry in presentation is an attribute that makes Barnie's CoffeeKitchen the leader it is in specialty coffee and cuisine.
We recently had the opportunity to partner with our friends at Yelp and Elite Yelpers to create a Valentine’s Day Season of Love event!
It’s no secret that Barnie’s CoffeeKitchen is the perfect spot for date night. Between the beautiful courtyard, the candle-lit tables and the exquisite wine selection, romance always seems to be in the air at Barnie’s.
Yelpers (and their sweethearts) enjoyed an intimate evening full of food, wine and the sweeter things in life. Guests were greeted with a Cordially Yours Champagne Cocktail before enjoying some of Chef Camilo’s savory hors-d'oeuvres.
We were honored to be joined by other great local brands, who made the event even more spectacular! Yelpers were captivated by gourmet marshmallows from Wondermade, hand-painted cards from Bright Light Paper, chocolate from Peterbrooke Chocolatier and lounge music courtesy of Orlando-favorite DJ Nigel.
Barnie’s CEO Jonathan Smiga shared from the heart about what the season of love means to our brand, and his passion for fine coffee and cuisine. He also announced the winners of our social media contest.
We asked Yelpers to upload photos from the evening and share the love on social media. We gave away several prizes to some of our favorite photos. But our absolute favorite photos went to a woman named Alyssa. She dazzled us with her new engagement ring. This photo truly captivated the loveliness of the evening. Jonathan Smiga gifted her a complimentary dinner for six to celebrate her recent engagement with fiancé and friends.

As the night came to a close, guests sipped on Sweetheart Lattes to keep the warm feelings flowing. It was a magical evening that would not have been possible without Yelp’s Orlando Community Organizer, Andi Perez.
Thanks to everyone who celebrated the Season of Love with us. Like I said before, romance always seems to be in the air at Barnie’s. So if you’re ever in need of a romantic rendezvous, Barnie’s is the perfect getaway for you and your sweetheart.
