5 ways to get your pumpkin on in Austin

Kerbey Lane Cafe

Put on some Taylor Swift and throw on your Uggs, it's pumpkin season! Just kidding -- the always popular p-spice latte has got nothing on the seasonal treats we've rounded up for you. Beer is considered a treat, right? 

Pumpkin French Toast

Kerbey Lane Cafe will be featuring their seasonal Pumpkin French Toast. If you order the Pumpkin Paris Texas Platter, you'll get the French toast AND their signature migas. Migas should come as a side with every breakfast. 

Vince Young Steakhouse

Pumpkin Spice Ice Cream Sandwiches

Vince Young Steakhouse (address and info)

Pumpkin-Goat Cheese Tart

Jack Allen's Kitchen (address and info)
West Oak Hill
Sink your teeth into JAK's Pumpkin-Goat Cheese Tart -- the creamy tartness of goat cheese and the sweet pumpkin whipped cream make this the kind of dessert you finish and immediately debate how weird you'll look if you order another.


All the pumpkin beer!

Draught House Pub & Brewery (address and info)
And of course, no pumpkin-roundup would be complete without mention of the beverage we wait all year for: pumpkin beer! Head over to the Draught House, because they've got an impressive not one, not two, but SIX pumpkin beers on tap: Avery Rumpkin, Jolly Pumpkin Bam Bière, Jolly Pumpkin Oro de Calabaza (cask), Point Whole Hog Barrel Aged Pumpkin Ale, Post Road Pumpkin Ale, and Redhook Out of Your Gourd Pumpkin Porter.
