Wondering where to take your new boo or old flame? Dating site OKCupid teamed up with Yelp and asked users to weigh in on the hottest Austin spots for your next romantic rendezvous.

The best cheap date option (hey, no judgement here) was Torchy’s Tacos, and the most photo-friendly spot was Jo’s Coffee (although you may want to hold off on the “I love you so much” wall if your relationship is pretty new to avoid an awkward conversation).

If you’re looking for a spot for drinks, the survey revealed the best hotel bar as The Driskill and the best themed bar as Midnight Cowboy, and if things are going well, the spot “where drinks could turn into dinner” was Whisler’s. If things are going ?really well, the survey listed the best “no-judgement makeout spot” as Cheer Up Charlies and the best morning after brunch as Snooze. 

For a more sophisticated date, the survey listed the Blanton Museum of Art as the best date spot to spark conversation.  If you and your honey are into staying active on your dates, users voted EpicSup Paddle Boarding as the perfect date.
