Sugar and Spice! The Yummiest Fall-Inspired Treats

Fall in Reno Tahoe is the gift that keeps on giving. Cozy sweaters and fall colors are the best way to celebrate the season, especially when paired with our flourishing coffee scene and variety of restaurants. So when it comes to pumpkin spice and everything nice, we’ve got you covered.

These coffee shops and restaurants in Reno and Lake Tahoe have the perfect fall treats you’re craving

Walden’s Coffeehouse

With three locations in Reno, Walden’s Coffeehouse is truly the king of pumpkin spice. If you’re looking to get your fix, then this popular family-owned restaurant is the perfect place for you. Their seasonal menu includes all things pumpkin – from pumpkin spice lattes and pumpkin spice chais to their pumpkin oatmeal topped with toasted pumpkin seeds. They also serve breakfast and lunch ALL day. We can all get on board with that.

Coffeebar Reno

Coffeebar is known for not only being one of the top-rated coffee shops in Reno but also a must-stop for serious fall enthusiasts. This year, Coffeebar’s menu is packed with seasonal treats like their returning fan favorites, the pumpkin chai and caramel pumpkin latte made with pumpkin caramel locally made by Dorinda’s Chocolates. Warm up with an autumn fog tea latte or harvest cider on the patio at their MidTown location on Mt. Rose Street, a great spot to take in the fall colors. 

Drink Coffee Do Stuff

As a specialty coffee roaster, Drink Coffee Do Stuff is rolling out with seasonal favorites for everyone to enjoy. Stop by their two locations in North Lake Tahoe – Incline Village and Truckee – and fuel up on fall treats like the pumpkin pie latte or a new specialty, the spiced citrus mocha made with a house-made spiced simple syrup and a dash of chocolate.

Rolled: Mountain Creamery

Rolled Mountain Creamery offers a seasonal flavor, Mexican Chocolate! This chocolate blend ice cream is mixed with cayenne pepper and cinnamon, and topped with a raspberry drizzle. Their two Reno locations ensure that no matter which side of town you’re on, you can roll into fall with this sweet treat.

Black Rock Dessert

Known for their over-the-top and totally Instagrammable ice cream creations, Black Rock Dessert‘s October flavors are as spooky as they are delightful. Try their Cereal Chiller, loaded with your sweet morning favorites, or the Burn S’More, which will transport you to a cozy fireside and satisfy your sweet tooth.

Dorinda’s Chocolates

Get a sugar rush with one of the many fall favorites available at Dorinda’s Chocolates. Pick up a box of handcrafted pumpkin truffles made with real pumpkin. Smooth white chocolate pumpkin ganache in a milk chocolate shell? Decadent!

Perenn Bakery

It’s hard to leave Perenn Bakery without a sweet pastry (chocolate croissant, anyone??), but this fall you must try their salted hazelnut latte, made with espresso, hazelnut, steamed milk of choice and Maldon salt. When you stop, be sure to ask about any limited-time pastry offerings that pair perfectly with any beverage you’ve ordered.
