Something about autumn makes us want to fill our bellies with all the comfort foods of the season. Lake Erie Shores & Islands has plenty of delectable eating options, from local coffee shops to world-famous ice cream. Check out some of the fall flavors:

Quarry Hill Orchards - This family fruit market features farm-fresh produce including pick-your-own apples. While you're at the market, pick up some apple cider and local baked goods. Don't miss Quarry Hill's Apple Peak Market celebration on October 19.

Great Lakes Popcorn - This local gem features more than 30 flavors of popcorn, from savory to sweet to spicy...and everything in between! The store also offers candy, nuts, and gift boxes/tins. Come in this season for filled tins featuring your favorite football team - great to take to tailgate parties!

Vine & Olive - This Mediterranean market and restaurant features international foods as well as a wide selection of baked goods. The market also features an extensive collection of domestic and international wines. Now would be a great time to pick up some seasonal soups or pastas.

Boom Town Coffee - Downtown Sandusky's spot for morning coffee and tasty lunches. New food and drink specials are offered each week. The shop recently introduced The Orchard, a Chai Latte filled with all the best fall flavors including apple, maple, and a touch of pumpkin spice.

Toft Dairy - Ohio's oldest dairy offers an ice cream tasting parlor with more than 50 flavors! Two limited edition, seasonal ice cream flavors have returned to the parlor, Apple Cobbler and Pumpkin Pie! But we're partial to the Lake Erie Cookie Island Monster!
