1. PUMPKIN CHAI FROM KAHVI COFFEE HOUSE + CAFÉ
What’s brewing at Kahvi Coffee, a newer Eau Claire coffee shop located at 3830 Talmadge Road? Pumpkin chai and pumpkin spice lattes! Stick with milk, or substitute oat, almond, or coconut milk for dairy-free options. While you’re there, treat yourself to a warm kolache made by Bloomer’s Bohemian Ovens.
2. MAPLE-NUT LATTE FROM 4:30AM COFFEEHOUSE
When it comes to Chippewa’s 4:30 AM Coffeehouse (608 N. Bridge St.), they have a “latte” of fall-inspired drinks. Try the Autumn Harvest (salted caramel and hazelnut latte), maple nut latte, pumpkin spice latte, caramel apple latte, or pumpkin pie chai! Substitute oat milk or almond milk for dairy-free versions of these sweet treats.
3. A TRADITIONAL PUMPKIN SPICE LATTE FROM THE GOAT COFFEE HOUSE
Can’t seem to find a pumpkin spice latte anywhere? The Goat Coffee House (336 Water St.) offers pumpkin spice year-round! Head over whenever to get your autumn pick-me-up (and grab a sammie, too)!
