Halloween season is rapidly coming to a close but there is still time to celebrate. Austin is making the most out of the holiday with themed cookies, cakes, coffee, cocktails and more. If you're not too scared, you might still have time to try them all.

Here are nine places to get your Halloween treat fix.

Big Top Candy Shop

Where else would you get your Halloween candy other than South Congress' staple Big Top Candy Shop? Pick up all the candy your heart desires or stop by the soda fountain and milkshake bar for a fall-flavored concoction.

Capital City Bakery

Capital City Bakery, on East Cesar Chavez Street, has your spooky cupcake needs covered. With cupcake flavors like "cookies 'n scream," candy corn, "boonilla," "strawberry brains" and the classic pumpkin spice latte cupcake, the bakery has something for everybody. That's not all though—for those who aren't feeling cake, Capital City Bakery is serving up pumpkin pie kolaches and mini pumpkin and pecan pies.

Kerbey Lane Cafe

Kerbey Lane is famous for its seasonal menus and comfort food, and this year is no different. Stop in and try a harvest mimosa, pumpkin pancakes, chili queso fries or sweet potato hash. If you visit the university location, located on 2606 Guadalupe St., you might even get lucky enough to get a caricature.

Milky Way Shakes

Milky Way Shakes, also on East Cesar Chavez, serves a host of space-themed vegan milk shakes year-round but their Halloween shake, the "International Spice Station," takes the cake. The shake, made with a vanilla or chocolate base, blended with pumpkin purée, pecan caramel and topped with gluten-free pie crust, will have you wishing it was fall all year long.

Sugar Mama’s Bakeshop

Featuring a range of October specials, Sugar Mama's Bakeshop has a menu that rotates daily and provides only the freshest of treats. This fall, pick up a brownie at its S. 1st Street location topped with candy pieces or its classic pumpkin chocolate chip cupcake, which is back again this year.

Sweet Ritual

Vegan ice cream shop Sweet Ritual, located on Airport Boulevard, is famous for its ever-changing seasonal scoops. This fall, catch flavors like pistachio rose, peach brown betty or sprinkle galaxy. Whatever you choose, there is a flavor for everyone.

Tellus Joe

If you're craving a more horror-inspired treat, Tellus Joe located on Windsor Road, is featuring a freaky "silence of the yams" ube (sweet potato) latte, complete with chocolate charcoal whipped cream. This drink ends on Halloween, so don't wait. Oh and don't worry, it's plant-based.

The Tigress

Miss Halloween night at the bar but don't want to go out? The Tigress, located at 100 W North Loop Blvd., is serving a list of Halloween themed cocktails to-go through Nov. 1. The pub is even selling cocktails for six in scorpion bowls for your at-home Halloween party.

Zucchini Kill

From pumpkin bread to donuts to swirl cake, Zucchini Kill has all things Halloween in one place. If you like pumpkin everything, they sell their signature "punk'n spice" that you can add to coffee, pancakes or anything you set your mind to. These creative treats are only available in October, find them at 701 E. 53rd St.

Get the most out of spooky season while you still can!
