Fall has officially arrived in Nashville, which means — love it or hate it — it’s time for the ubiquitous pumpkin spice latte. Instead of waiting in a lengthy Starbucks drive-thru line for this classic autumn flavor combo, head to one of these Nashville restaurants for a taste of warming spices served in a variety of creative forms, ranging from savory to sweet.
From PSL ice cream to doughnuts and cocktails, these 18 pumpkin-spiked dishes and drinks available right now at Nashville restaurants are the perfect way to welcome fall, plus a bonus of one-off available at pop-ups or one-night only.
For this weekend only (until they sell out) two one-off pumpkin dishes: Black Dynasty’s “slurprise Sunday” special is a pumpkin curry tonkotsu ramen — a pumpkin curry in the style of a fall Indian korma. Popular pop-up sour dough cinnamon roll bakery Rock n Rollz Nashville is offering a special pumpkin spice cinnamon roll, available by preorder only.
Meanwhile, Levon Wallace has created a special seasonal pumpkin FatBelly pretzel, rolled in cinna-sugar spice served with whippy cream cheese frosting.
Conny and Jonny has a pumpkin old fashioned doughnut, available until they sell out at Crema, The Loading Dock, Tempo, Barista Parlor, Cafe Roze, and more.
Aaron Distler of Mr. Aaron’s Goods is offering up a new pumpkin and squid ink rigatoni starting in the next week.
Follow along with all of the above on social for ordering and other information.
