Best Places In Austin To Get Your Pumpkin Spice On

Listen to this post with Alexa!

The leaves are changing and it’s cooler outside, or at least it is when Texas remembers there’s supposed to be seasons. But no matter what the weather, ’tis the season for all things pumpkin spice.

Southside Flying Pizza is making it adamantly clear that they do NOT offer anything pumpkin flavored.

Austin.com is and always has been a site that celebrates and promotes the unique people and places of Austin, TX and surrounding cities. Though many businesses, locations, and events are closed at this time, we continue to highlight those things so that you can plan to experience them in the future.

Pumpkin Spice

But lucky for all you pumpkin spice fans, many other Austin businesses do. Here’s where you can get your pumpkin spice fix on in the ATX!

Pumpkin Pancakes and French Toast | Kerbey Lane Cafe 

Kerbey Lane offers a rotating seasonal pancake menu and it’s that pumpkin time of year. Choose between giant pumpkin pancakes, they also have a gluten free option, or decadent pumpkin bread french toast! They both sound so good and you can’t possibly go wrong with either, so take a +1 and order both the share!


Pumpkin Ice Cream | Amy’s Ice Creams 

The Austin favorite ice cream shop is going full pumpkin. They’re offering various pumpkin flavors including; Pumpkin cheesecake, pumpkin custard, pumpkin pie, and pumpkin praline pie! Now that’s what I call a perfect pumpkin season menu.


Pumpkin Pie Snowball | Casey’s New Orleans Snowballs 

Most well known for their traditional New Orleans flavors of chocolate and cream syrups, some of their customer favorites include strawberry cheesecake, dreamsicle, and Boston cream. With over 70 flavors made in-house, there’s something for everyone. Hurry over if you want to try their pumpkin pie syrup because it’s only in stock for the fall.


Autumn Bomb Cocktail | Anthem 

One of the newest bar on Rainey Street is celebrating their fall season with a specialty cocktail. While you may be skeptical of a pumpkin flavored cocktail, Anthem’s blend is pretty amazing! The cocktail is a combo of sweet potato shochu and pumpkin infused amber beer.


Skully’s Brew | Wafflebot + Freak Shakery

Also located on Rainey Street, Wafflebot + Freak Shakery serves up some outrageously fantastic treats. In addition to their usual creative cuisine options, for Halloween they whipped up a shake called Skully’s Brew which features pumpkin spice latte ice cream with caramel drizzle and a frozen raspberry Jell-o shot, cookie, and chocolate eclair. We aren’t sure what date the specialty shake will end so check with them via Facebook or Instagram to confirm availability.


Pumpkin Tea Bread and Pie | Quack’s 43rd Street Bakery

Pumpkin isn’t a seasonal thing for Quack’s. They proudly carry pumpkin flavors all year round. However, we do hear their limited edition pumpkin tea bread is out of this world so try to get your hands on it before it sells out!


Pumpkin Spice Panna Cotta | Andiamo Ristorante 

Adding a pumpkin twist to a classic dessert like panna cotta is genius! This dish from Andiamo Ristorante sounds like the perfect way to end a meal so make sure you save room for dessert.

Pumpkin Spice Latte + Pumpkin Beer | Cenote 

If you want your pumpkin spice latte fix but don’t want Starbucks, Cenote is making their own pumpkin spice syrup. 


Pumpkin Empanadas | La Mexicana Bakery 

This one is for those of you out there who might not have such a big sweet tooth but still love pumpkin flavors. La Mexicana Bakery specializes in baking a wide selection of Mexican breads and pastries from cakes, pan dulces, bolillos and teleras, pralines, to rosca de reyes. So their empanadas have GOT to be good!


Ginger Bumpkin | Tiny Pies 

Tiny Pies has created every sweet lovers dream come true. It’s part brownie, part pumpkin, with a gingerbread crust. Yes, please! Check out their Instagram page for more of what we like to call “pumpkin porn.”

Today is National Pumpkin Day and we're celebrating by bringing back the fan favorite from last year's Pumpkin Fest; Vegan Pumpkin Coconut Chiffon. Pick up in store today while supplies last. A pumpkin chiffon filling inside a flaky butter crust topped with homemade whipped cream and toasted coconut.

Pumpkin Shake | Shake Shack 

Shake Shack’s seasonal offering includes vanilla frozen custard blended with real pumpkin, marshmallow, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Sounds dreamy, right? Better go get one quick because it’s only available until November 11.


Pumpkin Spiced White Russian | El Dorado Cafe

Sweet and boozy, this spiked spicy addition to our list would make The Dude oh, so proud. El Dorado’s pumpkin spiced White Russian features pumpkin liqueur, Kahlua, and vodka with a graham cracker rim. Sounds pretty dang good to us, but that’s just, like, our opinion, man.
