Arguably one of the best parts of the autumn months are the seasonal flavors. As the air begins to crisp, Lubbock’s local coffee shops and bakeries have the perfect pumpkin spice treats for you to try. Below is our complete list of the coziest shops that boast delicious drinks to get you in the fall mood!
Monomyth Coffee is a local favorite that offers a cozy atmosphere and serves delicious craft coffee and specialty drinks, as well as savory pastries and treats. This fall Monomyth is coming in fiery-hot with a fun specialty “firefall” syrup for lattes and drinks. The menu features the Firefall Latte made with brown sugar, cinnamon, and their seasonal firefall syrup; grandma’s apple pie-der which will be a house made caramel apple cider that will bring you to the next level of fall vibes. And, to top it all off, add their seasonal Foamie Homie cold foam that goes perfect on top of any iced beverage! You can thank me later.
This longtime iconic coffeehouse is the place to be for students looking to do study for midterms and caffeinate. Located in Tech Terrace, J&B not only serves as the ideal spot to study or catch up with friends, but it is a great option to sip on a warm cider while watching the leaves change color outside the front windows. This season, get your pumpkin fix as the local favorite is offering a pumpkin white mocha latte and a pumpkin chai latte. For a different route, try their GingerSnap latte.
TOVA is a local nonprofit coffeehouse that brings in a crowd of people on the daily due to their sweet staff and philanthropic atmosphere. They not only craft delicious drinks, but incredible homemade bakery goods and treats are showcased in the front cooler. We recommend pairing the pumpkin Rice Krispy treat along with the caramel apple cider. Other menu items include the pumpkin pie latte, where they take the signature latte and give it an autumn twist with pumpkin pie filling and pumpkin spice syrup. Is anyone else’s mouth watering?
If you love fall flavors but aren’t into the coffee scene, this bakery is a must! The Ruffled Cup has endless options of flavors when it comes to heavenly cupcakes and baked goods. Order cupcake flavors such as fall surprise, pumpkin salted caramel, perfect pumpkin, caramel apple, eggnog, pumpkin cheesecake and peppermint chocolate mocha! This is a must-stop on your way home tonight. No judgement here.
Not only is Sugar Brown’s on Broadway a spacious and inviting space to enjoy craft drinks, each cup is top-tier. This fall, you won’t want to miss the pumpkin latte! Next time you are ordering, try adding the Pumpkin syrup made with whole pumpkin and spices. For those who may not be a pumpkin fan, we’ve got you covered. The maple shaker or butter pecan latte pair perfectly with a cinnamon crunch donut!
