A Guide to Pumpkin Spice Coffee Drinks in Hoboken

Written by:

Ah autumn, the season of apple picking, leaf-peeping, and perhaps most importantly, pumpkin spice drinks (because we’re basic). While Starbucks may have popularized the flavor back in 2003, the pumpkin spice trend shows no signs of slowing down — everything from pizza to Pringles to hair color gets the pumpkin treatment these days.

While you can always find the OG PSL at any of the three Starbucks locations across the Mile Square (and yes, it’s already debuted as of August 24th along with Dunkin’ last week), we’ve rounded up a few additional pumpkin options from locally-owned businesses. Each one brings its own twist to the trend, so don’t be afraid to give all of these pumpkin spice spots in Hoboken a try (and mix it up with the various milk alternatives).

Disclaimer: Some of these spots may not have pumpkin available yet, but have offered these in previous years. Please contact them or call ahead for confirmation.

Bean Vault | 1 Newark Street

Available in October, stop in Bean Vault Coffee for their in-house Pumpkin Spice Latte or an Apple Cider before strolling the waterfront or heading to work. The best part? Both come hot or iced — so you’ll be ready for whatever this crazy weather brings.

Dairy-free milks: almond, soy, coconut

Black Rail Coffee | 800 Jackson Street

Looking to shop local instead of hitting the major chains? Black Rail Coffee’s Pumpkin Pie Latte is a worthy alternative to the original PSL (and it’s made with real pumpkin). It’s sweet, strong, and tastes like, well, autumn in a cup. It totally hits the morning coffee craving or the after-work dessert sweet spot.

City of Saints | 1320 Bloomfield Street

Good news, City of Saints is bringing back its beloved Autumn Spice this season – a pumpkin spice-esque drink that’s made with organic pumpkin pie mixture and traditional pumpkin spices to create an extra flavorful, fuller take on the traditional taste. But where the cafe has upped the fall drink game is with the “Coffee Toddy.” Yep, just like our favorite cozy, cold-weather whiskey drink, hold the whiskey… and the tea. The Coffee Toddy uses coffee instead of tea or hot water and spices it with clove, ginger, lemon juice, and honey. Talk about the perfect choice for a chilly night after a long day at work.
