The grocery store shelves are looking a lot more orange lately, which could only mean one thing: fall is here. You’d never know with the insane heat we’re having, but the new slew of pumpkin-flavored food items hitting the shelves reminds us that it’s time to be basic once again. In order to get us into the fall festivities, we have put together a list of the best pumpkin-infused brunches that are so good, you’ll keep eating them until your insides turn a Ross Geller-hue.
There is no better way to start your day on a weekend than with how you finished it the night before: eating pizza. Local 16 serves up brunch on the weekends with one entrée or pizza and all the bottomless booze you could imagine. Try their pumpkin pizza complete with an egg over easy to really get you in all the Fall feels.
If you like pumpkins even more than the average squirrel, than Tryst is your best bet for brunch. Enjoy the pumpkin and chocolate chip waffles with a house made pumpkin spiced latte, or go for the pumpkin brie quesadilla’s if you’re feeling more adventurous. No matter what you choose, you can’t go wrong when it comes to brunching at Tryst.
We can sum up the best brunch you’ll ever have in just three words: pumpkin french toast. Complete with honey pecan butter, apple compote, Vermont maple syrup and bacon, this dish will leave you wishing that every season was fall.
For those of you that appreciate pumpkin flavoring but not enough to devour an entire pumpkin-pie’s worth, then brunch at Ardeo + Bardeo will be your go-to spot this fall. They’re adding their own twist on the pumpkin-inspired craze by offering regular waffles with pumpkin butter on top. Now we’re normally not fans of incorporating pumpkin into every edible food source in the fall, but we could definitely get on board with this one.
The start of fall means that bikini season is officially over, so bulk up for winter by eating dessert first. Start your brunch off with their pumpkin spice specialty: pumpkin bread pudding with pumpkin ice cream and caramel toffee sauce and a piece of pumpkin chocolate to top it all off. And just in case that didn’t satisfy your pumpkin craving, they offer a delicious pumpkin spice hot chocolate for you to wash it all down with.
