It’s that time of year again, the weather is getting cooler, by 10 degrees, and fall flavors like all time favorite Pumpkin Spice are slowly making an appearance all over Austin.
While some of you love pumpkin spice, some of you also really dislike pumpkin spice. For example, Southside Flying Pizza made it adamantly clear last year that they do NOT offer anything pumpkin flavored.
But lucky for all you pumpkin flavored fans, many other Austin businesses do.
Here’s where you can get your pumpkin spice fix on in the ATX!
It’s Fig and Pumpkin Season | Mozart’s Cafe
This Austin staple is bringing back its fall dessert menu and they’re starting it off with a vegan and non-vegan option for cupcakes. The two flavors are Maple Fig (vegan) and, of course, Pumpkin Spice. They’re also offering a pumpkin pie tart to round off the treats. If you’re looking for your caffeine fix, try their pumpkin pie latte, french toast latte, or Mexican mocha. For de-caffeinated options there is the classic caramel apple cider! To quote Mozart’s Cafe, it’s okay to run.

Pumpkin Shake | Shake Shack
Shake Shack has three fall flavored shakes this year. There is the Pumpkin Patch shake, which is made with Libby’s Pumpkin Puree handspun with vanilla frozen custard, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Let’s not forget the whipped cream and candied pumpkin seed toppings. They are also joining the Apple Cider Donut train but making a shake out of it. This is a flavored frozen custard and is topped with whipped cream and cinnamon donut crunch. And finally, there is the Choco Salted Toffee Shake which is a chocolate frozen custard and salted toffee sauce hand-spun and topped with whipped cream and chocolate toffee sprinkles.
Fall Pies | Tiny Pies
We love you too, Tiny Pies. We especially love their fall menu because when we think fall, we think pies. There’s so many delicious options to choose from. The best part? They’re tiny so you won’t feel guilty getting one of everything! Just maybe don’t eat it all in one sitting, or do. Who are we to judge?
Autumn Latte | Summer Moon
It’s a little too soon for chestnuts roasting on an open fire, so why not Summer Moon’s wood-fired espresso? Add in moon milk, and autumn spices and you’ve got the perfect autumn latte. Try it hot or ice. We suggest iced because fall weather is no where in sight.
Pumpkin Baked Goodies | Capital City Bakery
Attention Vegans, Capital City Bakery has all your fall needs. Try their Carrot Pumpkin or PSL cupcakes. The PSL cupcakes espresso buttermilk frosting – enough said.
Fall Drink Specials | Jo’s Coffee
Jo’s Coffee fall drink specials are delish! The pumpkin drink is a pumpkin pie latte which we have to admit sounds pretty dang delicious. You can get it hot or iced! There is also a French Toast Latte, Caramel Apple Cold Brew, and Voodoo Matcha. Try them and let us know what you think.
Fall Favorites | Jeni’s Ice Cream
Fall Favorites flavors include Pumpkin Cake Roll, Boston Cream Pie, Banana Cream Pudding, Coffee with Cream & Sugar, and Middle West Whiskey & Pecans.
Pumpkin Cupcake | Sprinkles

Pumpkin French Toast | Kirby Lane
It’s here, the moment we’ve all been waiting for! Kirby Lane’s fall menu is here!
