Basic? Maybe. Delicious? Yes. While some folks take the fall flavor too far, (looking at you, pumpkin spice-flavored marshmallow chickens) some Bluff City spots do pumpkin spice well.
Gibson’s Donuts – Pumpkin cake donuts with cream cheese are worth standing in line for at 7 a.m.
South of Beale – Grab a pumpkin pie martini to celebrate the season.
Muddy’s – Get a pumpkin spice latte if you’re into that, but the best bet is a pumpkin oatmeal cookie with brown butter glaze.
Sheridan’s – The pumpkin pie blend includes frozen vanilla custard swirled with an entire slice of autumn’s favorite dessert.
