WEB EXCLUSIVE You really autumn try these sweet treats around Raleigh this season.

Lookin’ for pumpkin sweet to enjoy this fall? Look no further than this roundup of unbe-leaf-ably delicious fall desserts at restaurants around town.

Pumpkin Creme Brulee from Bittersweet

There’s nothing bitter about this sweet treat from our fave dessert + cocktail bar in DTR. Crack into the hard layer of caramel on top to sink into an irresistible pumpkin spice filling—and each bite should be enjoyed with the side of housemade whipped cream, spiced pecans and dried cranberries. 

Pumpkin Cheesecake Eclair from Lucettegrace

Better than pumpkin pie? It just might be… This seasonal delicacy from Lucettegrace features a pumpkin pie cheesecake cremeux layered with crunchy pieces of pecan praline, caramel sauce, pecan praline paste and spiced creme chantilly. Oh, la, la!

Pumpkin Cinnamon Rolls from The Cupcake Shoppe

Swirl and twirl your way to The Cupcake Shoppe for the most decadent cinnamon rolls you’ll ever get your hands on (sorry, mom). This seasonal flavor has been flying off the shelf, so make sure you grab one before they’re gone!

The Great Pumpkin from Layered Croissanterie

This seasonal croissant from Layered would have Charlie Brown drooling (and dropping everything to get his hands on one immediately). Layered’s signature flaky croissant gets filled with a spiced pumpkin custard and topped with whipped cream and maple bourbon pecans for a sweet treat that works for breakfast or dessert (or both?!). 

Pumpkin Spice Latte/Pepitas Praline Doughnut from Tepuy Donuts

You haven’t lived until you’ve tried one of Tepuy Donuts’ delectable doughnut creations. Flavors rotate often, but this season we’re seeking out this pumpkin spice latte/pepitas praline doughnut that just screams fall. (Oh, and don’t miss Tepuy’s apple pie doughnut and pumpkin creme brulee doughnut too.)

Pumpkin Pie Ice Cream Rolls from Raleigh Rolls

It works out that it’s still 80 degrees in October here because we needed an excuse to get this pumpkin ice cream creation from Raleigh Rolls. Cool down with pumpkin puree with spices and graham crackers mixed in and topped with whipped cream and graham crackers.
