Where to Get Your Pumpkin Spice Fix in the Valley


Yes, #pumpkinspice season is here in the Hudson Valley, with coffees, teas, treats, and more to celebrate everyone’s favorite autumnal flavor.

Few things signal fall quite like pumpkin spice. Sure, there are leaf-peeping drives and corn maze meanders to celebrate the season. When it comes down to it though, pumpkin spice is the true herald of autumn’s much-anticipated arrival.

While some may say that nothing compares to a certain big-name latte, the Hudson Valley holds its own on the pumpkin spice front. Here are a few local products to satiate your #pumpkinspice cravings. If you spot any treats we missed while you’re out and about, don’t forget to snap a pic and tag us @hudsonvalleymag on Instagram.

Pumpkin Spice Coffee, Donuts, and Ice Cream, Stewart’s Shops

Locations throughout the Hudson Valley

The Hudson Valley’s favorite convenience store doesn’t disappoint when it comes to fall flavors. The family-owned chain delights with pumpkin spice coffee, pumpkin donuts, and pumpkin pie ice cream. While you’re there, try out the apple pie ice cream, apple cider donuts, and apple spice muffins, too.

Pumpkin Spiced Latte Cupcakes, The Cakery


When it comes to cupcakes, The Cakery has the perfect formula for pretty much every flavor you could crave. This fall, the Fishkill sweet shop brings it with pumpkin spiced latte, Nutella cream cheese pumpkin, pumpkin, white chocolate pumpkin, and pumpkin chocolate chip. Not enough pumpkin for you? The Cakery also does the flavor in cake pop and regular cake form.

Pumpkin Muffins and Cupcakes, Samuel’s Sweet Shop


Is it any surprise that Samuel’s has pumpkin spice down pat? The sugary sweet storefront channels all things fall in its pumpkin cupcakes and pastries, sour gummy pumpkins, and pumpkin spice gluten-free vegan muffins, to name only a few. Keep an eye out for other rotating fall specialties throughout the season as well.

Pumpkin Spice Tea, Harney & Sons


Not a coffee drinker? Never fear. Harney & Sons is here to save the day with its signature Pumpkin Spice tea. The herbal red bush tea is heavy on the spice, so be prepared for flavorful sips of cinnamon and clove. It pours out as a bright red, making it a tasty companion on crisp fall days.

Pumpkin Cold Brew, Iron Gate Café


During a time when decadent lattes with sky-high whipped cream towers dominate the Hudson Valley’s java scene, cold brew almost sounds basic. But, then again, maybe that’s because you’ve never had the brew at Iron Gate Café. A true testament to the ingredients of the season, the Albany spot’s brew gets its smooth, sweet consistency from rich pumpkin cream that’s made in-house, with a dollop of pumpkin whip on top. And did we mention there are pumpkin pie lattes, too?

Pumpkin Spice Latte, Ready Coffee Co.


In addition to its stellar lineup of craft coffees and smoothies, Ready brings all the fall feels with its seasonal drink menu. While the pumpkin spice latte is a must for PSL lovers, the brown sugar cinnamon latte and salted caramel mocha are worthy sips when you’ve finally imbibed all the pumpkin you can handle.

Pumpkin Spice Loaf, The Cookie Factory


A sweet-tooth staple in Troy, The Cookie Factory hits a home run with its seasonal pumpkin bread. Each loaf comes topped with a fresh dusting of powdered sugar, making it perfect to pair with a steaming cup of java on a crisp fall morning. Keep an eye out for the pumpkin muffins and cookies while you’re there, too.

Pumpkin PB Dream Cookie, Halfsies Cookie Company


Known for its OTT cookies, Halfsies hits a home run with its seasonal pumpkin flavors. Your best bet for scoring a cookie pack is to follow the brand on Instagram, where it announces its limited-edition cookie drops. As for the flavors, keep an eye out for everything from Pumpkin PB Dream (that’s a peanut butter cookie with Reese’s peanut butter chips and pumpkin pie spice) to Pumpkin Caramel Latte (a sugar cookie with pumpkin pie spice, Café Bustelo, and caramel and vanilla chips).

Pumpkin Spice Marshmallows, Hudson Valley Marshmallow Co.


Just when you thought the fluffy, homemade ‘mallows at Hudson Valley Marshmallow Co. couldn’t get any better, they go and get pumpkin spice-ified. Pick up a bag for fall-themed s’mores nights around a cozy campfire (or your stove). Bonus points if you pair them with a cup of hot cocoa…with a #PSL marshmallow on top, of course.
