There is nothing like a fall treat to complete a crisp day in the fall. The delicious flavors associated with this season are one of the best parts. If you are ever in the UES, make sure you stop by one of these places and grab a delicious treat.
Le Pain Quotidien: Chocolate pecan tart
Although this is not specific to the UES because it is a chain restaurant, this list would not be complete without this tart. Imagine a crispy, nutty pecan pie, but with a layer of fudgy chocolate – and chocolate makes everything better.

By the Way Bakery: Mini apple crumb cake
This little cake gives all the flavor of an apple pie without the mess. It was sweet, cinnamon-y, and had a delicious crumb topping.
Location: 1236 Lexington Avenue
Two Little Hens: Maple wheat scone
What is more fall than maple? This scone was huge, had an impeccable texture, and was a perfect match to a hot mulled cider. Not to mention the shop has a super cute aesthetic. Two Little Hens is very popular so there can sometimes be a line, but it is worth the wait!
Location: 1652 2nd Avenue
Glaser’s Bake Shop: Mini pumpkin pie
If you are looking for an old school bakery, Glaser’s is your place. First of all, this little pie was the cutest thing I have ever eaten. It had the perfect ratio of flakey crust to creamy, spicy filling complete with a big helping of cinnamon whipped cream.
Location: 1670 1st Avenue
Petite Shell: Mini cinnamon croissant
Cinnamon is just one of the many flavors of mini croissants Petite Shell features. The best part? They serve them straight from the warming oven after you order.
Location: 1269 Lexington Avenue
Sedutto: S’mores ice cream
There is no other way to describe this ice cream other than it tastes like an actual s’more. It’s made with chocolate ice cream, a marshmallow fluff swirl, chocolate pieces, and graham cracker pieces. The ice cream is rich without being too sweet and had the most perfect, creamy texture. It’s never too cold for ice cream, so I definitely recommend this treat as a way to enjoy the best fall flavors before the season’s over!
