Do you love pumpkin spice a latte? Keep the fall vibe going from breakfast and beyond with Delaware’s top pumpkin spiced and autumn-infused dishes. Plan which must-try bites you’ll indulge in with the list below!

For breakfast

Add some heat to a cool fall morning with Mug & Spoon’s Spicy Pumpkin Maple Latte featuring a wake-up kick thanks to an infusion of habanero peppers.

A cinnamon-sugary apple cider donut made with cider fresh from Fifer Orchards is the perfect companion to any hot morning coffee, pumpkin spiced or otherwise!

If you choose a lighter take on breakfast, Greenman Juice Bar and Bistro serves a cinnamon topped power bowl featuring quinoa and pumpkin seeds for an autumn touch. Also available is a new cold-pressed juice, Quiet Isle, which lets apple cider and ginger take center stage.

For lunch and dinner

Cool weather ushers in fig season in Delaware and Half Full of Lewes tops their beloved pizza crust with figs, arugula and balsamic to create the perfect balance of sweet and savory.

Savory fresh seafood still adorns menus along the Delaware coast well into the fall. At Lewes’ Heirloom you’ll fall in love with their scallops, pan-seared with butternut squash and topped with apple cider caramel.

Trade in traditional spicy, barbecue pork belly at Home Grown Café in Newark where you can enjoy a fresh seasonal take on the dish by ordering yours crispy with homemade apple butter, squash chutney and apple cider “caviar.”

Pasta lovers rejoice at Piccolina Toscana in Wilmington where the “Mezzaluna di Zucca” makes a brief appearance on the menu featuring pasta filled with squash, brown butter, sage and pine nuts.

First Watch in Christiana has perfected the fall staple, butternut squash soup by creating a rich, creamy bisque topped with fresh herbs.

For dessert

Ice cream lovers have plenty of pumpkin options to choose from when deciding what to top off dinner with. From Vanderwende Farm Creamery’s no-nonsense sweet and creamy pumpkin ice cream to Woodside Farm Creamery perfectly spiced treats served with or without pecans.

For those who side with baked goods over frozen treats, Dolce Bakery and Coffee Shop has maple bacon cupcakes and apple butter thumbprint cookies on the menu all autumn long.
