Billy’s Bakery (Chelsea, Tribeca, Central Park South):For delicious vanilla pumpkin cheesecake, head over to Billy’s Bakery.  This delicious dish is topped with rich caramel and chopped pecans—yum!

Yura on Madison (Upper East Side): This cafe is routinely the city’s top pick for pumpkin pie. Made with a flaky, buttery crust and filled with spices, brown sugar and pumpkin, Yura on Madison’s pumpkin pie is a must for the season.

Sundaes and Cones (East Village): If you are in the mood for a frosty treat, Sundaes and Cones offers pumpkin ice cream! The seasonal soft serve flavor is perfect for a warm autumn day. 

Alice’s Tea Cup (Upper West Side and two location in Upper East Side): This Alice in Wonderland-themed shop serves a scrumptious selection of teas and pastries. Enjoy a pumpkin scone with caramel topping alongside a hot cup of tea on a brisk fall day.

Doughnut Plant (Chelsea; Lower East Side; Prospect Heights, Brooklyn; Long Island City, Queens): Doughnut Plant offers a variety of gourmet doughnuts including a pumpkin spiced doughnut—made with real pumpkin—with spiced pepitas (pumpkin seeds). If you are looking for an even richer doughnut, try the pumpkin doughseed—a mini doughnut filled with pumpkin custard on the inside and pumpkin glaze on the outside.

Fat Witch Bakery (Chelsea): With Halloween around the corner, the Fat Witch Bakery is the perfect place to splurge on a pumpkin dessert. This bakery specializes in super moist, cakey brownies. The pumpkin brownie is mainly pumpkin cake with a sliver of the bakery’s signature brownie underneath.

bisous, ciao. MACARONS (Greenwich Village): Celebrate the holiday with a delicate dessert from bisous, ciao. MACARONS. This bakery caters to your pumpkin needs with a pumpkin-spiced macaron filled with buttercream that is flavored with cinnamon, ginger and cloves.
