Slowly but surely, fall is arriving in Atlanta, and with that comes all the basic fall flavors and we are here for it. From freshly baked breads to steaming hot lattes, there’s something so comforting about an apple or pumpkin flavored treat. If you still say that you don’t like pumpkin spice, quit being a hater and check out our list of where to get some of the best fall treats in the city this fall season. (NOTE: these are all seasonal items so check with the store for availability)
220 Sandy Springs Cir, Sandy Springs, GA 30328 (+1 more location)
With a couple of locations in north Atlanta, it’s not too tough to find a delicious fall treat if you really want one. Order ahead or pop in to their Dunwoody or Sandy Springs location to grab a loaf of their homemade pumpkin bread. It truly doesn’t get better than this. A slice of pumpkin bread can turn any bad day around. Don’t think we were gonna get away without mentioning their apple honey bread or the cranberry orange, either. With a name like Breadwinner Cafe, you can bank on all of their breads being pretty dang tasty.

Doughnut Dollies knows how to make some pastries, and lucky for you, they also love adding a little fall flare to the menu. Their apple cider old fashioned doughnuts have entered the scene for another season of deliciousness. Other menu options that are sure to cure your craving include the vegan pumpkin coffee cake and apple fritters. Need we say more?
The Original Pancake House
2321 Cheshire Bridge Road, Atlanta, Georgia 30324 (+2 more locations)
The Original Pancake House is a breakfast staple, and they are starting to churn out some fall classics you know and love. Their apple pancakes are oven baked with fresh granny smith apples and pure Sinkiang cinnamon glaze. If that doesn’t scream fall we don’t know what does. They’ve also got Georgia pecan pancakes that are a mainstay on the menu, but they sound like they would hit the spot on a nice cool, fall morning, so we’re gonna give them an honorable mention.
3575 Durden Dr NE #302, Brookhaven, GA 30319
The season may technically be fall, but depending on the time of day, it could still feel like summer here in ATL. Southern Custard in Brookhaven makes one of the tastiest cold treats around. They offer chocolate and vanilla every single day, along with one specialty flavor. Throughout the fall you can expect to see flavors like pumpkin cheesecake, apple pie, and other delicious creations. Be sure to check their online calendar if you don’t want to be surprised by the flavor when you get there.

Now don’t think we were just gonna give you a bunch of pancakes and doughnuts (although those would have sufficed), we also have the perfect fall beverage for you. Stop into one of Spiller Park’s three locations to try their ever so festive, spiced pumpkin caramel latte! You can tell this thing was made with love and all the fall vibes in mind. While you’re there, try one of their delicious toasts or bagel sandwiches.

The Buttery is a little bit tucked away, but once you find it you are in for a treat. This little bakery and sandwich shop is serving freshly made items every day so you gotta get there while supplies last! Right now you can expect to get treats like their freshly baked apple pie, and every Friday morning they offer a special kind of croissant, so as we roll into fall, don’t be surprised if they’re offering one with a hint of pumpkin!
