We’ve entered some of the most festive months out of the year and with that joyous fact comes an inevitably joyous celebration of the season’s best. With the leaves beginning to shift from green to orange, pumpkins on display outside of every grocery store, and knitted sweaters making their annual comeback, coffee shops near and far put the pedal to the metal and bust out their crowd-pleasing seasonal menus. We’re talking pumpkin, cinnamon, nutmeg, marshmallow, maple, salted caramel, and all that jazz. Autumn is in full swing, and boy are we pumped about it.

Now that we have heavily delved into the topic of Fall, let’s address the real MVPs behind taking this season to the next level. Let’s give a round of applause to the individuals at the coffee shops we adore who singlehandedly create the most delectable flavors of Fall (in a cup). Each year, new seasonal flavors are introduced and it’s hard to believe they could get outdo the last, but the Columbus coffee industry said, “hold my pumpkin spice latte.”

Here’s the best Fall drinks to order near Columbus!

The Roosevelt Coffeehouse

300 E Long St, Columbus, OH 43215

The Roosevelt Coffeehouse has several delicious drinks year-round, but perhaps a new favorite is their special seasonal S’mortado. With a chocolate and graham-cracker drizzle, a marshmallow skewer, and a perfect meld of flavors combined with espresso – this drink is a must-try!

Mission Coffee Co. LLC

2060 S High St, Columbus, OH 43207

Mission Coffee Co. has an ultra-cozy Pumpkin Chai on the menu to whisk you into a Fall coma – in a good way, mind you. It’s oatmilk based and can be enjoyed hot or over ice, whatever floats your boat.

Vinyl Coffee

143 N Main St, Washington Court House, OH 43160

Vinyl Coffee is one of our personal favorites when it comes to coffee and ambience, but this time of year – our love for Vinyl only grows. Their seasonal menu is off the charts – but the one that’s got us weak in the knees is their Salted Maple Pecan Cortado.

*starts sweating profusely at thought*

Stauf’s Coffee Roasters

627 S 3rd St #1060, Columbus, OH 43206

Stauf’s Coffee is a Columbus staple and that is an undeniable fact. They have a perfect drink that we like to call “transitional” to get you through Fall and into winter. Their Rosemary Brown Sugar Latte is one for the books! This drink is a German Village exclusive, by the way!

Parable Cafe

149 S High St, Columbus, OH 43215

Parable Cafe always keeps it fresh with their beverage menu and we’re all about their new items. A Fall highlight is their Brown Butter Maple Cortado!


4066 Worth Ave, Columbus, OH 43219

CRIMSON took the PSL to the next level in their creation of the Pumpkin Pie Latte. Get your pie fix in a cup, because why not? Head over to CRIMSON for a PPL.
