Spice up Your Coffee Shop Menu This Autumn
Team Offbeat | 25 Oct

As we set the clocks back an hour this Sunday and begin to cosy up for winter, we explore some warming autumnal menu offerings.


Starbucks’ Pumpkin Spice Latte is back! The iconic drink is made with espresso, pumpkin spice sauce and steamed milk, topped with whipped cream, cinnamon, nutmeg and cloves. Jumping on the vegan bandwagon, they also offer a version with vegan sauce and a dairy-alternative milk.


Stepping outside the box, Costa have launched their Lotus Biscoff muffin. The delicious treat has an indulgent Lotus Biscoff spread centre and is topped with toffee icing and an actual Lotus Biscoff Biscuit! Also available are Costa’s usual trio of bonfire spiced beverages, including a latte, hot chocolate and cold brew. Catering to the Vegans, Costa will also be offering their signature drinks in vegan form.


This year, Greggs have launched their own version of the Pumpkin Spice Latte, alongside a plethora of delicious hot pastries. Back for a second year is the Spicy Chicken and Pepperoni Bake, comprising of spicy fajita chicken and pepperoni in a creamy sauce, wrapped in a cheese topped puff pastry lattice. And, if that’s not enough to warm your cockles, there’s also a Hot Piri Piri Chicken Baguette, Chipotle Steak Baguette and Apple and Cinnamon Spiced Porridge.


Chasing the chills away, soups feature heavily in Pret’s autumn menu. Flavours include Mushroom Risotto, Red Thai Veggie and Chicken, Shitake and Miso. Also on offer are a selection of Toasted Focaccias, with fillings including Mozzarella, Pesto & Roasted Tomatoes, Salt Beef and Pickles and Brie and Bacon – tasty!

Get creative this autumn and branch out from your usual coffee shop offering. Think warming soups and hot paninis, or try adding winter spices to cakes, pastries and beverages for the ultimate autumnal menu.
