Though it’s a tried-and-true classic, we couldn’t leave pumpkin pie off this list, especially one this good. The crust on this handmade pie is beautifully flaky, and if pie isn’t totally your speed, this spot serves a pumpkin cheesecake as well.

You can find Hoosier Mama Pie Company at 1618 1/2 Chicago Ave.

If you’ve been to Floriole in the Fall, you know that people go nuts for the pumpkin sticky buns. They are made with pure pumpkin puree, so the flavor is punchy, and the cream cheese frosting is the perfect sweet complement. Come early because they go fast!

You can find Floriole at 1220 W. Webster Ave.
