Fall Comfort Items to Find Around the Champaign-Urbana Area
Around this time every year, we start to get that itch for fall. Whether you're a sweater and tailgate kind of fall fanatic or simply like the cooler weather, there's so much to love about the season.
All in all, the real change we love to see is everyone embracing the comfort items we know and love about fall. From a seasonal latte to autumn scented candles, there's a ton of great fall comfort items to find around the Champaign-Urbana area. Here are a few of our favorites as we head into the beginning of the season!
We can't talk fall comfort items without discussing the joys of a perfectly-soft pumpkin bar from Homestead Bakery at the Great Pumpkin Patch in Arthur, Illinois. These melt-in-your-mouth pumpkin bars are the pride and joy of the Homestead Bakery, plus while you're there, get your hands on their famous pumpkin cookies, pumpkin cinnamon rolls, and chocolate chip pumpkin Bread! All of their baked goods are made-from-scratch and made from real pumpkin. We recommend grabbing multiples of each item, as they will probably disappear quickly when shared with loved ones!
Nothing makes a home feel cozier then the smell of pumpkin or apple filling the living room or kitchen. Fire Doll Studios, is a must-stop this season as you hunt for fall scents to warm the heart and please the senses!
With traditional items like luxury hand-poured scented soy wax pillar candles and wax melts to limited edition options that rotate in the shop, the comfort of a fall candle is hard to beat!
When it starts to get cooler, we know we're not the only ones who also crave apple-themed treats. Curtis Orchard over in Savoy, Illinois, comes alive in the fall and features a variety of apple-infused baked goods that'll keep you coming back for more. The Orchard's cake-based apple doughnuts are an instant hit with the locals. Baked daily and topped with a light cinnamon sugar (or glazed) dusting, we recommend getting there early to grab yourself a fresh dozen!
You can find incredible seasonal lattes at almost every coffee shop and café we have in the Champaign-Urbana area. If you're hunting for that pumpkin fix that's slightly innovative and incorporates a blend of different flavors, why not order a Pumpkin Cinnamon Iced Macchiato at Kino's Coffee over in Paxton!This Latte is delectable as it is customizable. Try it hot, iced, or blended. Need a milk alternative? Try it with Oat or Almond Milk!
Kino's serves up delicious lattes and can also hook you up with a great breakfast options while you're visiting. Plus, their regularly-rotated drink and dessert specials will turn you into a regular before you know it.
