Pittsburgh Fall Food and Drinks

Pittsburgh Fall Food and Drinks

Celebrate and enjoy the tastes of Autumn in Pittsburgh 🍂

If fall is your favorite season, you know that you have to run (not walk) to enjoy all the fall eats and treats before they are gone. Especially in Pittsburgh, fall tends to be particularly short, so make sure to enjoy all of the pumpkin, turkey, and apple cider donuts before it’s gone.

Mad Mex Gobblerito

The infamous burrito from Mad Mex only comes around this time of year. If you love all the Thanksgiving food, then why not eat it in burrito form with an apple cider margarita on the side. Celebrate the great feast holiday more than once. Turkey, gravy, mashed potatoes. What more could you ask for?

DiAnoia's Gnocchi Pumpkin Bowl

This fall treat not only tastes amazing but is one of the most Instagrammable fall dishes in the city! Served inside a freshly roasted pumpkin, DiAnoia's fall special features house-made potato gnocchi tossed in a pumpkin cream sauce made with cinnamon, nutmeg and allspice; mozzarella, parmesan and pecorino cheeses; and fresh basil. Gnocchi Pumpkin Bowls are available for dine-in or take-out. To-go kits are available for purchase during the week of Halloween (Oct. 26-30) at dianoiaseatery.com.

Pumpkin Beer and Hard Apple Cider

Pumpkin beer and seasonal hard cider drinks are in season, but only for a short time. Get your pumpkin beer fix at Southern Tier Brewing Company, Mike's Beer Bar, or Bierport to grab and go. Stock upon your favorites because these fly off the shelves and are stopped in production shortly after starting to prepare for winter brews. Also, check out Pittsburgh’s own hard cider house Arsenal Cider in one of their many locations.

Farmer’s Market Treats

With only a few weekends of nice fall weather, you need to capitalize on the local farmer’s markets. Soergels or Trax Farms are a great place to start and stock up on your fall favorites, including apple cider donuts, kettle corn, and all of the pumpkin baked goods. Take some pumpkins to-go to make homemade pie and savory pumpkin seeds for snacking.

Brusters Seasonal Flavors

Pittsburgh’s hometown ice cream powerhouse Bruster’s has all your seasonal favorites covered. There are so many options that you might have to visit more than once in fall so you can try them all before they are gone. Try flavors like caramel apple crunch and cinnamon bun.
