Pumpkin Foods in Toronto

Hey everybody,

Like much of the population, I am obsessed with everything pumpkin and pumpkin-flavoured, especially at this time of year. I was wondering what restaurants/shops/even fast foods joints offer pumpkin foods around Toronto, especially seasonal.

Let me know! Also, what are your favourites? I'm looking for any pumpkin:

-Muffins or cupcakes
-Ice cream
-Anything and everything pumpkin flavoured!

I am also already aware of:

-Starbucks' lattes, frappuccinos, muffins, scones, and bread
-Tim Hortons' donuts and tea

Thanks, from the bottom of my and other autumn-loving hearts!

  1. For me pumpkins symbolizes the beauty of fall in so many ways, the colour, the food that is derived (pumpkin pie after a Thanksgiving meal) from it and Halloween (jack o lanterns, pumpkin carving).

    To get back to your original question, I was at Whittamore`s farm yesterday on Steeles ave east, just east of 9th line (Markham). and they had great pumpkin pies, pumpkin brownies, tarts and jams for sales and more that I can`t remember. I bought a pie that was made same day and the filling was quite good, heated up and served with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.

    1. Love the Thai pumpkin soup that is offered at Linda from time to time. Hoping Khao San Road might offer a version of pumpkin soup this fall.

      If anyone sees pumpkin or pumpkin pie ice cream being sold/served in the GTA, please post!

        About 3 years ago we were out and had a pumpkin soup. It was pumpkin chestnut soup at Marcel's on King St. W. as I recall. We had no idea what to expect. Never had it before and we absolutely loved it. I am going to try my hand at making pumpkin soup myself this year.

          I also love anything pumpkin.
          One of my favorite is : Pumpkin Chai at David's tea. Best way to have it is with some milk and sugar. It is in part of their fall collection.
          I also saw PC brand pumpkin ice cream at Loblaws for the first time.
          Cobs bread has pumpkin scones.

              I think they have few different locations in Toronto. You can look up their stores and see which one is close to you. Pumpkin Chai is quite nice. If you like it, make sure you buy extra because it is seasonal.

      2. Love this topic!

        I had a pumpkin whoopie pie at the St. Jacob's market a few years ago...would like to find one of those again. The Great Lakes Brewery pumpkin ale is pretty good, but I believe there was another pumpkin beer at the LCBO last year, I just never could find it and can't remember the brewer (McAuslan maybe?)

        I believe Ed's has pumpkin pie ice cream, although I've never had it. Can anyone recommend it?

          I remember it being pretty good, although it has been a couple of years since I had it.

        2. They had mini pumpkin cakes at Flaky Tart the other day -- mini bundt-style cakes sliced through the centre and filled with cream cheese frosting. Quite delish. Not sure if they have these all the time at this time of year.

          1. Not crazy about conventional pumpkin pie but like the one from Summerhill because it's pumpkin CHEESECAKE pie!!!
