Spat’s Café

Spats also provides fresh and local ingredients in an intimate space. Spat’s serves “the best of New Orleans,” which include tapas and Cajun dishes. Tapas are “small dishes” that can be eaten as an appetizer, or you can order a variety of them to share as a meal. In addition to tapas, the dinner menu is very extensive. Entrees include Jambalaya, crab cakes, duck, pasta, and several vegetarian options. End your meal with a homemade dessert like Crème Brulee or Mocha Fondu for two.

Every Monday Spat’s offers BYOW (bring your own wine) night, and Valentine’s Day falls on a Monday this year – how convenient! So make your reservation, bring your bottle of wine, and enjoy your Valentine’s Day experience in downtown State College!

For reservations call 814-238-7010.
