Three words — fall spice lattes. The house-made drink is flavored with organic pumpkin puree, maple syrup, vanilla, and spices. The café will also offer apple cider and a black sesame latte in this month, and pumpkin will make an appearance in sweets like an Om Sweet Home vegan, gluten-free doughnut, and Amy’s Bread bundt cake.

This spot just rolled out their fall-inspired drink and its a must-try. Their drink is a “Pumpkin Pie Red Eye”, made with a mixture of coffee, espresso, Tree House pumpkin pie syrup {pumpkin, brown sugar, spices, cinnamon, and nutmeg}, and your choice of milk.

Lackawanna Coffee {140 Bay Street and 295 Grove Street}

For the most part, Lackawanna doesn’t limit its creative drinks to a particular season — customers can sip on turmeric tonics and beetroot lattes year-round. But this fall the hip shop is offering a latte featuring Vermont apple cider, espresso, and milk. P.S, the outdoor dining areas at both locations are super chic and totally Instagram-worthy.

Lil’ Dove Cafe {589 Palisade Avenue}

This Bergen-Lafayette spot offering a pumpkin spice latte {of course} with organic pumpkin puree, cinnamon, and maple syrup, as well as a house-made iced horchata.

Customers won’t find any pumpkin in the coffee at Modcup — not even in the PUNKin Spice. The drink — a rebellion against our collective PSL obsession — contains a double shot of espresso, house-made chai concentrate, Ghirardelli chocolate syrup, and steamed oat milk, and it’s available hot or iced. Stay tuned for more fall-inspired drinks, as they will be rolling out a new one in the coming days

As if choosing from this Manhattan-based chain’s long list of coffee drinks, teas, smoothies, and juices wasn’t difficult enough, several specials are joining the lineup this fall. The pumpkin spice latte pairs the company’s signature Night Vision espresso {a creamy, chocolatey blend with notes of orange and plum} with house-made pumpkin spice syrup. The maple latte is exactly what it sounds like: Night Vision espresso with your choice of milk and a touch of maple syrup.
