4 Pumpkin Treats you Have to Experience This Fall

It’s finally September, and while it still may be 95 degrees outside, we’re using every excuse we can to begin satisfying our fall cravings. Starting the first of the month, a whole cornucopia (no pun intended) of autumn flavors were made accessible to the world.

Let’s be honest though, the real star during this time of year is always pumpkin. At Datz and Dough, we can assure you that we’ve snuck it into everything possible.

1. Pumpkin Spice Sweet Cream

Our house-made sweet cream, infused with cinnamon, clove and all-spice, is the perfect addition to your cold brew coffee. Keep cool from the Florida heat, while embracing fall in all of its glory.

2. Pumpkin Spice and Pumpkin Crème Brulee Doughnuts

The names speak for themselves. They’re decadent and filled with fall flavors that pair perfectly with a cup of hot coffee or your favorite tea.

No matter where you live, ice cream is a classic treat that should be enjoyed throughout the entire year. At Dough, we’ve created a home-made Pumpkin Pie Ice Cream that is the perfect topping to our famous doughnut cone.

We also have a cocktail that’s a really sweet (and boozy!) twist on a traditional Irish coffee. Because we live in such a warm climate, it only made sense to our Mixologist and General Manager, Morgan Zuch to make “Dublin Calling” with house-made cold brew coffee. Another extremely bright idea Morgan had was to make the whipped cream not just from scratch, but with a Guinness and Bailey’s Irish Cream reduction. It’s really, really, really good. Enjoy between and now Thursday, 3/17.

Coffee is Best When it’s Local

We visited Joffrey’s Coffee & Tea Company this week to check out where our delicious coffee is being roasted and it was awesome. First of all, Joffrey’s does all of their coffee bean roasting just 15 minutes north of us on S. MacDill. They roast to order, so you know the coffee you’re drinking wasn’t sitting on a pallet before it got delivered to us. Another great thing is that they only use the highest quality arabica beans and they roast only two bags at a time— meaning each and every coffee bean is evenly roasted.

How’s that for FRESH, LOCAL, and AMAZING?

Enjoy Joffrey’s Coffee iced or hot with us at Datz or at our coffee & sweets shop next door, Dough.
