Fall is in the air, and there are plenty of places to sate your craving for pumpkin, nutmeg, cinnamon, and more. Here are six favorite San Antonio bakeries and restaurants to find decadent fall desserts:
5 Points Local
Gluten-free foodies shouldn't feel neglected this fall, as 5 Points Local has got you covered with its gluten-free pumpkin bread and pumpkin and pecan pies. These goodies are so satisfying you could easily fool your gluten-eating friends. Be sure to call ahead to ask what's in the daily dessert case and place your order ahead of time if you want a pie for Thanksgiving.
Bakery Lorraine's spooky yet tasty Halloween treats were a hit. Other fall specials include macarons in pumpkin roulade, caramel apple, and pumpkin spice. Get yours while the goods last.
This sweet bakery has enough options to satisfy anyone's cravings. The latest buzz? A decadent pumpkin spice cheesecake with a silky smooth center resting on a caramelized pecan crust.
Las Ramblas at Hotel Contessa
This season the chefs are dishing out a sinful pumpkin pie cheesecake with a pecan and oatmeal crust and a salted bourbon caramel sauce. For an extra kick, order the pan dulce (sweet bread) cocktail, which is creamy and aromatic.
Hotel Emma's Supper is serving a superb ginger bread cake that's accompanied by roasted fennel ice cream, coffee, milk chocolate chicory, and candied rose petal. The harmony of aromatic flavors is perfect as we enter the holiday season.
