Top 5 Pumpkin Treats in Cincinnati

It’s officially October—you can’t run and you can’t hide from pumpkin mania, so strap on a bib and enjoy the ride.

1. BonBonerie Pumpkin Cheesecake is a creamy, cool twist on a classic. A gingersnap crust makes this a not-so-basic pumpkin dessert worthy of a spot at your Friendsgiving table. The BonBonerie. 2030 Madison Rd. (513) 321-3399,

2. Busken Bakery Pumpkin Pie and Doughnuts are the standard models of fall desserts. Something about a no-frills pumpkin pie and a hefty dollop of whipped cream will take you right back to eating dessert first— it’s a holiday!—and watching the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade (on the floor, because grandma got the chair). The doughnuts are the delicious mobile version of this nostalgia-packed taste bud tradition. Busken Bakery,

3. The Fall Dream cupcake at Happy Chicks Bakery is one of their “Fall Super Fancy Flavors” and is the perfect “treat yo-self” indulgence. Orange spice and pumpkin butter combine to make something unique, yet familiar. Oh, did we mention this also comes in a cake version? Happy Chicks Bakery, 4035 Hamilton Ave., Northside, (513) 386- 7990,

4. Servatii Bakery takes the pumpkin-flavored cake for seasonal dessert menus. It’s amazing that the beloved pumpkin spice flavor has yet to make an appearance up until now, but Servatii’s Pumpkin Spice Coffee Cake is not to be missed. If that’s not your thing, doughnuts, muffins, pies, rolls, cookies, and petit fours have all gotten a fall face-lift—some, with actual jack-o-lantern faces. Servatii Bakery,

5. The Crunch Top Pumpkin Pie at Bluebird Bakery  is the star of the show on their Thanksgiving menu. Take a regular ole’ (but delicious) pumpkin pie, add a crunchy, buttery walnut and coconut topping, and…get two because one will be for you. Bluebird Bakery & Cafe. 29 Village Square, Glendale,
