September is here, so it’s time to say our goodbyes to summer and dive into the cozy, sweater-weather season of fall. Hot themed drinks are a big part of the autumn aesthetic, but as the popular pumpkin spice latte takes over, we’re bringing you five local spots you can get other flavors besides the basic go-to.

1. Innova Coffee

Get ready for Autumn with Innova’s seasonal flavors that will put you in the spirit of the season —even if the weather still says summer.

Their Maple Bourbon latte is a favorite to try, and if you’re not a coffee person, you can opt for the Caramel Apple Cider with homemade apple cider whipped cream.
