Love it or hate it, the Starbuck’s pumpkin spice latte is a sure sign of fall. Local businesses and eateries are getting in on the fall flavor action with unique seasonal menu items of their own. From sweet treats to delectable drinks, here are some of our favorite fall foods from around 28205.

Smelly Cat: Pumpkin Spice Latte

It’s time to take the PSL obsession local. Smelly Cat Coffeehouse in NoDa creates a pumpkin spice syrup from scratch with real pumpkin and lots of spices. 


The Hobbyist & Bonjour Y’all Bakery: Maple-glaze Drizzled Oat Scone

Take a turn away from pumpkin for some alternative fall flavors like the maple-glazed drizzled oat scone found at The Hobbyist in NoDa and produced by Bonjour Y’all Bakery. Pair it with the bourbon brown sugar cortado, aka the Boozer Cruiser. 


Sunflour Baking Company: Sweet Potato, Pecan, and Cranberry Muffins

This muffin from Sunflour Bakery is like Thanksgiving dinner in a to-go treat. Take a bite out of this combo of fall flavors while they last—this is a new treat for the season. 


Amelie’s Bakery: Sweet Potato Pecan Layered Torte

Go truly decadent with the sweet potato pecan layered torte from Amelie’s, complete with golden pecan and mini marshmallows on top.
