Now that Labor Day’s over it’s time to start looking towards fall. It’s a beautiful time of year in Chicago, with crisp temperatures and turning leaves. It’s also time for heartier flavors, like the ever-popular pumpkin spice. If you’re craving the flavors of fall now, these South Loop coffee shops will give you what you need.
Dollop Coffee is going all-out with the Fall flavors this season. Instead of pumpkin spice, they’ve got ‘Smores Mocha, a Honey Cinnamon Latte, and the oh-so-delicious sounding Maple Syrup Latte. They’ve also got Hot Cocoa if you’re looking to get ready for winter. These delightful flavors aren’t at all locations, though, but they are at their Dearborn spot.
Starbucks may be directly responsible for the pumpkin spice latte craze. It’s something fans look forward to all year long, and now the waiting is over. There are three locations in the South Loop, so you won’t have to go too far to get your fix.
When it comes to cool-weather comfort food, you can’t go wrong with Nutella. Overflow Coffee Bar’s Nutella Mocha is a neighborhood favorite. The drink’s not the only thing that’s comforting. This coffee shop is dedicated to making the world a better place. They do that in part by purchasing fair trade coffee that pays at least 25% more than the minimum fair trade rate, and it goes directly to the farmers.
Enjoy the giant patio at The Spoke and Bird while you can. While you’re soaking in the last rays of summer, you can sip on a Mocha Latte and indulge in some handmade pastries. Their Bressane is made with seasonal jam, so expect some fall flavors to make an appearance. If you’re in the mood for an adult beverage, you can pretty much guarantee there’ll be some pumpkin beers available.
