For the fall foodies
Many spend the year looking forward to the warmth of fall flavors. If pumpkin, apple, cinnamon and maple are your go-to, Dallas has plenty to offer. For quick meet-ups or first dates, Window Seat Coffee in Lower Greenville offers seasonal drinks fit for a cozy breakfast for two. Try the sweet potato latte or the fan-favorite apple chai-der for a perfect fall treat. A warm cinnamon roll, slice of pumpkin loaf or croissant will complete a sweet morning together.
For a fall sweet treat, head to Emporium Pies, a Dallas-based modern American pie company devoted to making Fine Pie for Fine Folk. This cute little pie shop sells scrumptious pies all year round, but for fall they added four new variations for the season like the Drop Dead Gourdgeous, A Spiced pumpkin pie with a gingerbread crust. If cheesecake is more your vibe, head to Val's Cheesecake for scrumptious treats that will knock your socks off.
For soup lovers, try the famous tortilla soup from The Mansion Restaurant at The Rosewood Mansion on Turtle Creek. Try the Lunch Tasting Menu featuring a starter and main course for $44 and choose from seasonal favorites! (If the soup isn't on the menu you can still ask for it) Enjoy the stunning restaurant interiors or sit on the patio and enjoy the peaceful view of Uptown Dallas.
Finish off the night with an innovative, photo-worthy cocktail from The Woolworth. Try the old-fashioned vanilla served with a cinnamon stick to add a hint of spice or the purple rain, a gin-based drink with notes of violet, pomegranate, lemon and rosemary.
Stop into Scardello, a popular shop in Oak Lawn that features more than 150 handmade American, Texas and European cheeses, to grab a slice of brie for a romantic picnic at the Summer Concerts at the Dallas Arboretum or Griggs Park, or sign up for one of their popular cheese classes.
