Mexican Sugar Las Colinas

It is finally state fair season in DFW, but you don't have to fight the traffic and crowds at Fair Park to enjoy everyone's favorite fried treat; churros. Sweet dough dusted with cinnamon and sugar will bring out the child in all of us and Mexican Sugar Las Colinas is elevating this dish to a whole other level. After finishing your delicious meal of tacos or enchiladas, dive into the Churros with cajeta, chocolate and cream. The perfect sweet finish to your night and be sure to ask for a sipping tequila recommendation with your dessert!

Yes, it is officially fall, but maybe the Texas sun didn't get the memo yet. Even when we get those 90 degree days in October, you can still enjoy fall flavors while staying cool from the heat. Take a stroll to Water Street and enjoy some lakeside ice cream from Creamistry. The newest flavor on the menu is sure to become your favorite; Cinnamon Roll! Get it as a cone, cup, shake, or pint; there are limitless combines you can make with an assortment of toppings and sauces. For the perfect fall cone I recommend a cinnamon roll scoop topped with Biscoff® Cookies, caramel sauce, and if you're feeling adventurous, candied bacon!

Breakfast, but make it dessert! Le Peep is going full fall with these sweet pancakes. Pumpkin Pecan Pancakes with melted butter and sweet cream will make every morning feel like an autumn escape. Complete the meal with a hot or iced latte and say, “Hello!” to fall.
Pax & Beneficia Coffee
5244 N O'Connor Blvd #150
We can’t talk about fall sweet treats without mentioning the iconic Pumpkin Spice latte. My favorite place to indulge in this seasonal drink is at Pax & Beneficia Coffee. Homemade pumpkin syrup and high-quality espresso create the perfect blend of bitter and sweet. If you’ve seen pumpkin spice too much already, be sure to try their other autumn flavors like Mulled Apple Cider and Maple Pecan latte.
The Ranch at Las Colinas
857 W John Carpenter Fwy
The first dessert that comes to mind when thinking of fall time for me is Pecan Pie. My favorite at Thanksgiving is available with a delicious twist at The Ranch at Las Colinas. Their famous Route 66 Pecan Pie is loaded high with local pecans, a cinnamon roll crust, Balcones Texas Whiskey caramel sauce, and served with local vanilla ice cream. The perfect end to your Texas-sized meal at The Ranch.
