Pumpkin Foods in Toronto
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
-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!
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.
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!

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.

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?
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.
