The Roosevelt Coffeehouse in Columbus
Sip a Pumpkin Spice Latte for a cause this season at Roosevelt Coffee House. This downtown Columbus haunt was founded not only to deliver the best seasonal coffee confections to its customers, but also to support social efforts like clean water, fighting hunger and ending human trafficking. Their fall menu never ceases to impress with items like the Chaider (chai + apple cider), S'mortado, Pumpkin Roll Cappuccino, and of course, the Pumpkin Spice Latte.
Reza's Coffee in Dayton
This Beavercreek café serves up crafted coffee ideal for warming you up and getting you into the seasonal spirit. Check out their Fall menu, featuring the classic Pumpkin Latte. As well as others like the Pumpkinccino (think 'frappuccino'), Harvest Moon Latte, and the Campfire Mocha - which comes with a jumbo toasted marshmallow on top! They'll also have their house made Pumpkin Whipped Cream available all season too.
If you're looking for more seasonal sipping specialties, try their Popcorn Latte. It'll be available through Thanksgiving, and was created in honor of the Beavercreek Popcorn Festival.
