It's Pumpkin Time!
We’re in the throes of another New York City fall enjoying apple picking, visiting fall festivals, wandering corn mazes, and of course eating and drinking everything pumpkin! Here are a few picks for some great places where you can satisfy your taste buds with this spectacular, seasonal flavor.
One just isn’t enough when it comes to the pumpkin whoopie pies at Brooklyn’s One Girl Cookie. These bites of perfection, a cross between a cake and a cookie, are as artful-looking as they are delicious.
If pie is your passion, head to the Little Pie Company near Times Square for out of this world pumpkin pie. The bakery utilizes locally sourced ingredients to create this perfectly spiced, creamy decadence in a golden brown crust.
We know that Starbucks sells a great pumpkin latte but check out the beverage at Martha’s Country Bakery, with several locations in Queens (Astoria, Forest Hills and Bayside). The drink is warm and energizing – and you can add a yummy cake or muffin as the ideal accompaniment.
In Chelsea Market is Fat Witch Bakery, where the brownies are legendary – and yes, there’s one with pumpkin. The brownies are moist and packed with flavor – it’s tough to tame yourself to only one at a time.
If pumpkin is not your preferred flavor, you can still indulge in so many wonderful treats at any of these establishments – there’s always a reason to reward yourself! Consider us your home base as you embark on a foodie adventure around New York City – during the fall or any season.
