Buffalo Coffee Roastery, 350 Main St.
This local spot puts a festive spin on lattes with a pumpkin spice flavor. But it doesn’t stop there. Imagine stuffing a whole pumpkin pie in your coffee cup. Buffalo Coffee offers pumpkin pie coffee flavoring almost every week. A little hint: Try the pumpkin pie flavoring in the coffee drink of your choice next Friday.
Daily Planet Coffee, 1862 Hertel Ave.
Pumpkin spice galore. This spot puts pumpkin spice flavor in any of your favorite coffee drinks. Lattes, coffees, iced coffees. Try them all. Fall never tasted so good.
Dog Ears Bookstore, 688 Abbott Road
Coffee and books, what a great fall combination. Grab a book and a warm beverage, with a little hint of seasonal spices. The store boasts a pumpkin spice coffee.

Not only does this chain have its own form of a pumpkin spice latte, but it also offers a maple pecan latte. The maple pecan combines maple syrup, pecan and brown butter flavor, sprinkled with maple-flavored topping. It claims to bring fall right to your coffee cup.
