Between Construction season, and Winter season, there is a little known season called Fall, or Autumn to our European compatriots. It's a great time to enjoy the changing colours but also build up a bit of much needed 'insulation' for the coming cold. This is not a time for fresh garden salads or cool smoothies.
That's why we thought we'd give you a few suggestions for warming treats you need to eat to beat those end of summertime blues, and get you in the mood for fall in Montreal.

September 26-28: Anything Pumpkin Flavored/Spiced
Fall wouldn't be fall if there wasn't pumpkin-spice in all things nice. Everyone's favourite Pumpkin-spice lattes from Starbucks, pumpkin-spice-flavoured Oreos, pumpkin-pie shake, hell even a pumpkin-spice burger are the food items that truly mark the beginning of fall.

October 3-5: Food Trucks!
We have gotten quite used to seeing food trucks posted up in various spots around downtown Montreal over the summer, and they are still around for a little while longer. Don't miss the last culmination of Montreal's epic street food goodness at the final First Fridays of the year happening at the Big O on October 3.

October 10-12: Wings!
The only thing better than eating in the fall, is eating while watching the Habs in the fall, and the ultimate HNIC includes tasty, succulent chicken wings. Cage Aux Sports offers a sweet deal, with 8 free wings given out whenever the Habs score 5 goals, but the Red Bull wings at Brutus are well-worth checking out.

October 17-19: Coffee & Pastries!
There is something so European, and downright comforting, about strolling along the Old Port wrapped up in your favourite warm scarf and tuque while nibbling on a delicious homemade pastry and sipping a foamy latte from Olive & Gourmando.
