It's time for Dining Month, presented by Deer District and its spooky Halloween-themed alter ego, Fear District. Throughout the month of October, we'll be serving up fun and fascinating content about all things food. The signature dish, however, is our 2019 Best of Dining poll, who's winners we will dish out all month long. Get hungry, Milwaukee! 

It is that time of year again when our daily cup of coffee, our favorite sweet treats and, well, just about everything gets a fall twist with pumpkin spice. Is it even fall without the overload of pumpkin in every meal? The answer is absolutely not.

But what could be more perfect than a steaming mug of pumpkin spice latte? If it came with a side of pumpkin pancakes, of course!

You batter believe we have done our research and are stuffed to the brim with delicious pumpkin pancakes. And here are six restaurants that will stack up to your pumpkin pancake expectations. Holy crepe – these pancakes are good!

1. Original Pancake House

This is a classic pumpkin pancake dish that comes with warm syrup and loads of whipped cream. Warm up with these festive pancakes in this cozy diner during the upcoming crisp fall mornings. 

2. Beans and Barley

These pumpkin pancakes are your classic fall-inspired breakfast with a twist: During the month of October, Beans and Barley is serving up their pumpkin flapjacks with orange-infused butter to spice things up.

3. First Watch
