Today, we’ve scoped out some of our favorite places for sweet treats, and showing you what we’re looking forward to trying most this fall!

Pumpkin Spice Bars at Sugar Mama's

These pumpkin spice bars may look simple, but one bite into one of these and you’ll find yourself immersed into a world of fall flavors. The cream cheese frosting perfectly compliments the pumpkin spice flavors, which is why this bar is an essential Knoxville fall-time treat!

Pumpkin Bread at VG's Bakery

Pumpkin bread is a fall staple. VG’s Bakery is a Knoxville staple. It only makes sense that pumpkin bread from VG’s is an essential fall-time treat! Only caveat: you miiiight just eat the whole loaf in one sitting. Thank goodness this is also the season for oversized sweaters and leggings, right?

Fig-Almond Galettes at Wild Love

Contrary to popular belief, not EVERYTHING you eat this fall needs pumpkin flavors. Instead, let’s get figgy with it! If you’re up for a different type of fall treat, try the fig-almond galettes from Wild Love.

Caramel Apple Beignets at Five Bar

The French doughnuts at Five’s brunch give NOLA’s Café du Monde a run for their money. They’re a light and fluffy starter for your Sunday brunch, and it’s the caramel-apple drizzle makes them one of our fall favorites. Our favorite way to order these is paired with a side of hot coffee – it’s especially fitting for a breezy autumn morning.

Pumpkin Spice Latte Donut at Maker's

What’s better than coffee and a donut? A Maker’s donut built like a pumpkin spice latte! In addition to this fall treat, Maker’s also has a pumpkin cinnamon sugar donut to try for a limited time.
