Maybe it’s sitting on your front porched illuminated by a candle, maybe it’s a scent from a candle filling your household, maybe your dog has a costume just like it… it’s orange, large, and a fall staple: the pumpkin!
The pumpkin seems to be evolving in new creative ways every single fall and 2020 is no exception. Union Wharf residents, if you are craving the iconic fall flavor of pumpkin spice, there are plenty of options right here in Baltimore.
Sweet Pumpkin Spice
Sacré Sucré Pastry Shop has handcrafted delectably fluffy and sweet Saffron and Kabocha Squash Croissant Rolls. Their shop, located on the corner of Fleet and Washington Streets, is open for fall pastry purchases from Thursday to Sunday.
Canton’s new Café Dear Leon is all about fall flavors. They have a specific fall menu full of fall foods like apple turnovers and cinnamon sugar and apple cider glazed donuts. But the Pumpkin Tart, topped with a homemade, in-house marshmallow, is nothing shy of perfection.
Stop by the Iron Rooster for brunch and grab yourself one of their signature fall pastries: the Pumpkin Pie RoosTarts. Located only 10 minutes from your home at Union Wharf, you can walk, drive, or bike for every kind of comfort food imaginable.
There is no shortage of pumpkin spice at THB Bagelry and Deli! Their menu contains pumpkin bagels and pumpkin cream cheese. If that isn’t enough, order your very own pumpkin spice latte with whip cream!
Atwater’s Food goes above and beyond for fall flavors! With syrup made from local pumpkins, their lattes and drip coffees are exploding with pure pumpkin spice. Pair one of these drinks with their homemade pumpkin bites, pound cake, or pumpkin chocolate chip muffins.
Looking for a post dinner pumpkin treat? Joe Benny’s, located in the heart of Little Italy, has combined pumpkin and cheesecake into creampuffs. Order online, over the phone, or walk-in to their store any Wednesday through Saturday.
It is never too cold for ice-cream! Head on over to BMORE Licks to partake in homemade Pumpkin Oreo ice-cream. If you are more of a classic ice cream person, but want some seasonal spice, order one of their special pumpkin flavored cones.
The classic pumpkin pie will never go out of style. At Pie Time, try a taste of their pie that has a bit of a surprise… caramel pumpkin pie!
Spiked Pumpkin Spice
The Pumpkin Horchata, made with Pampero Aniversaro rum, Hamilton Pimento Dram, nutmeg, and housemade rice milk pumpkin horchata, may as well be autumn in a glass. Visit SugarVale in Mt. Vernon to try this drink.
For 12 months this mead has been aging inside a rye whiskey barrel, so it is perfectly sweet and smooth for your tasting! The Pumpkin Draft Mead with Spices can be found at the award winning Charm City Mead.
Serenity Wine Bar and Café has the drink to keep you warm this fall: Pumpkin Spice Sangria. This wine can be paired with their very own pumpkin spice cake. Dine in or order to-go, Serenity will put you in the best seasonal mood.
