This article is written by a student writer from the Her Campus at Siena chapter.



Looking for some cute places to check out with your Valentines or Galentine’s today? Here’s some of the best places to get sweet V-Day treats right in Albany!



This groovy bagel shop is a super cool place to chill out any day in Troy, but it’s especially fun today because they have heart shaped strawberry bagels! Pair it with some yummy vanilla cream cheese and a warm flavored coffee to warm up your Valentine’s day breakfast. But act fast: heart-shaped bagel supplies are limited, so make sure to stop in early to make sure you get one!

Cider Belly Donuts

I think I can say with confidence Cider Belly has the yummiest donuts in all of Albany. For Valentine’s day, they have an amazing special menu of all kinds of Valentine-themed donuts like the “heartthrob” that you will definitely LOVE! You can either get a box of donuts packed up to go, or sit and enjoy eating your donuts at their cute little shop. Either way, I would get there early because I’m sure they’ll run out quick!
