Bring On the Fall But Hold the Pumpkin

In our stunning town of Knoxville, Tennessee, we are blessed with our pick of many cozy coffee shops. What pairs best with our favorite Scruffy City shops? Leaves changing and temperatures dropping. ENTER: Sipping on cozy seasonal fall coffee creations around town. (Eek!😍) We all know pumpkin lattes are here to stay (and we are, for the record, all about it), but there’s more to fall than orange gourds. We took a trip around town to find y’all some of the GOODS. Move over, Starbucks PSL. There’s some new fall goodness in town.

Without further ado: Here are five of the best fall lattes in Knoxville.

5 Must-Try Fall Drinks in Knoxville

Awaken Coffee: Downtown Spice with Toasted Marshmallows

Old City

We’re starting off strong with Awaken Coffee downtown – specialty lattes are kind of their thing. The Downtown Spice is Awaken’s take of a classic pumpkin spice – but wait! They add a toasted marshmallow syrup🤤 Sipping on this drink makes you want to grab your coziest flannel and stroll down the streets of the Old City, or even kick up your feet inside the shop and stay while. Pro-Tip: Ask for marshmallows on top…. and make it toasted!

Vienna Coffee Fall Latte

Vienna Coffee Roasters: Cinnamon Roll Latte

Old City

Cinnamon, marshmallow and white mocha syrup swirled in with espresso and steamed milk. Now you can have your cinnamon roll AND coffee, and drink it too. Tastes like a Sunday morning if ya ask us. Pro-Tip: This one is even more delicious iced – looking at you year-round iced coffee drinkers!

Likewise Coffee in East Knoxville Fall Seasonal Latte

Likewise: Spiced Apple Latte

East Knoxville

This latte tastes like fall with its subtle hints of apple and made with creamy oatmilk. Add in the fact that you can sip it inside the endlessly adorable Likewise Coffee? It doesn’t get better. Pro-Tip: Ask for it to be made with caramel, which basically makes it a caramel apple latte. Honestly, what more could you even ask for?😍

Pecan Pie Latte at Treetop Coffee Shop in West Knoxville

Treetop Coffee Shop: Pecan Pie Latte

West Knoxville

Who says you have to wait until Thanksgiving to satisfy your pecan pie craving? The Pecan Pie Latte is subtly sweet and not-so-basic. But who’s surprised? Treetop always crushes it with their out-of-the-box house-made syrups 🙌

S'mores Mocha from KBrew in Knoxville Tennessee

K Brew: S’mores Mocha

North Knoxville | West Hills | Downtown

Marshmallow syrup, mocha, topped with whipped cream, a baked meringue, and chocolate shavings. Close your eyes and you may forget you’re at K Brew and not actually at a bonfire, especially when the merengue melts into a marshmallowy goodness.

BONUS FALL LATTE:

It’s not technically coffee but the K Brew Harvest Apple Cider is YUM. I mean, look:

Steamed apple cider with house made caramel and whipped cream – otherwise known as the best drink you’ve ever tasted.

Whatever drink you choose, we hope it does its fall-latte magic (ie. mentally transporting you wearing a flannel in 50 degree weather while apple picking in Vermont. OR or, hear us out, sending you straight to Luke’s Diner).
