Before We Spill the Tea (disclaimer):

The lovely team at Magic Hour hooked us up to check out their Pink Pumpkin Patch, but we will still be serving up nothing but the honest tea in this review.

We aren’t ones for dragging out a review so we’ll break this into 3 bite-size sections: General Information, Food and Drinks, and Halloween Ambiance.

Sips and Screams: Food and Drinks Review

NGL we did not expect much of the food. We thought it was going to be typical Instagram-bar food - visually appealing but lacking in flavor. We were quite pleasingly surprised. 🤯😋

We did a “breakfast-for-dinner” vibe and got their iconic Pink AF Pancake Stack plus the Fried Chicken Box. Both were quite flavorful and enough to feed 2, 3, maybe even 4 people.

For dessert, we had two of the Halloween specials, the Skull Smash Cupcake and the Flaming Pumpkin. Sure, they're a tad bougie on the price scale, but the Flaming Pumpkin is like paying for a mini firework show (hello, TikTok gold). But, and here's the plot twist, the star of the show wasn't the fiery pumpkin; it was the Doctor Death cocktail. It comes in two 10oz I.V. bags and was surprisingly smooth and delicious – we'd definitely order it again. 🍸💀

Spooky in Pink: Where they Rate on the Halloween Ambiance Scale

There’s a reason this place snagged a spot on our Halloween brunch hit list. The vibe might not give off spooktacular chills (try these spots), but it's the go-to joint for hanging with your squad, snapping Insta-worthy shots, and sipping on killer drinks.

Now, the Pink Pumpkin Patch? It's not exactly a pumpkin patch – more like a pink-tastic photo op with painted pumpkins throughout. Which is cute and all, but their themed grub and drinks are the Halloween game-changers here. It's brunch goals for sure, but don’t limit yourself to just the daytime hours. They're throwing a Halloween Weekend Party! 🎃🍹🎉
