Suddenly craving pumpkin spice? Wanting a warm apple cider?
Fall officially begins Sept 22, so we’ve rounded up a few seasonal sweet treats — and where to find them in Charlotte.
1. Pumpkin Chai Latte & More – Detour Coffee (mobile, throughout city)
Is it really Fall without someone mentioning Pumpkin Spice? Well, find this seasonal staple at Detour Coffee, with a twist. Detour’s Pumpkin Chai Latte is like the traditional Pumpkin Spice, but with a makeover. Get this item and more on their fall-inspired menu, including a peach cobbler smoothie and coffee cake latte, now through the end of the season.
2. Caramel Apple Croissants – Burney’s Sweets & More (S. Main Street)
Fewer treats feel more Fall appropriate than apple pie and the team at Burney’s Sweets & More understands this. Their popular glazed croissants take on a new level of indulgence when stuffed with diced apples, pie filling, and topped with warm caramel sauce. The caramel apple croissants are at Burney’s Sweets & More right now.
3. Spiked Apple Cider & More – Famous Toastery (Uptown Location)
The Uptown location of Famous Toastery has a pretty alluring seasonal drink menu each year that includes a warm spiked apple cider and an apple cider mimosa. The Fall-themed bar menu is available all season long.
4. Chef Andarrio’s Peach Cobbler Waffle – Cuzzo’s Cuisine (Tuckaseegee Road)
While this item is technically an all year favorite at Cuzzo’s Cuisine, it’s especially delicious during the Fall season. The peach cobbler waffle, paired with some of Cuzzo’s crispy fried chicken makes the classic dish a savory meal and sweet treat all at once.
5. Pumpkin Spiced Pancakes – Easy Like Sunday (Woodlawn Road)
To be fair, pancakes are available all year at Easy Like Sunday, but what’s landed it on this guide is the specialty pumpkin flavor. The pancakes are a popular brunch item for Easy like Sunday, but it becomes a Fall favorite around this time of year. Top the Pumpkin Spiced Pancakes with warm syrup and light powdered sugar for the perfect Autumn brunch.
