As the weather gets cooler in Frisco, all things fall and pumpkin spice come to mind. We see it in pies, lattes, muffins and donuts, so why not support local and get your pumpkin spice fix right here in town. Here are a few of our favorite cafes and restaurants to try a pumpkin spice latte.
American Coffee And Tea is a veteran-owned coffee shop which has it all - from beautiful coffee, tea and lemonade flights to delicious sugar and chocolate waffles, you won’t be disappointed in whatever you order! The lineup on the fall inspired coffee flight board includes: pumpkin pie, maple cinnamon, salted white mocha and mocha Irish cream. Check out their pumpkin vanilla chai frap, specially crafted for Sleepless in Frisco, and the iced pumpkin swirl loaf which is sweet and delicious. They even have a drive through for your morning coffee to go.
La Finca, located on Main Street in historic downtown Frisco, is a family-owned and operated coffee shop with Mexican roots. The owner creates his own unique bean profiles and roasts in house while his wife bakes fresh every day in the scratch kitchen. We loved their hot pumpkin spice latte made with dulce de leche and pumpkin syrups. The iced butter cup latte was made with a perfect blend of peanut butter and chocolate. The bakery offers a variety of sweet empanadas including pumpkin pie filling and also serves a nutty pumpkin roll and fall themed cookies.
UP Inspired serves delicious, nutritious food with real ingredients that are locally sourced and organic whenever possible. UP believes in food that fuels both the mind and body. Their coffees and lattes are made from hand-crafted and organic sauces and sweeteners, so you know they're good for you. They have an incredible pumpkin spice latte made with all natural and organic pumpkin syrup and they offer a pumpkin muffin (gluten free) with every coffee purchase.
Renew Coffee and Bakery is located in Frisco Square in the heart of Frisco. The ambience in this cute, little coffee shop is peaceful and comfortable. The owners of this shop are very welcoming and will greet you warmly as you enter. The latte art is beautiful and carefully poured to perfection. They offer an assortment of muffins, scones and cookies along with high-quality roasted Intelligentsia Coffee. Stop in and relax while sipping your pumpkin spice latte with a friend or grab one to go and enjoy as you walk around Frisco Square.
If you want to try a unique PSL this fall, you must ask for the Aussie Iced Pumpkin Spice Latte at Aussie Grind. With two shots of espresso over ice cream, rimmed with graham crackers, pumpkin spice and a toasted marshmallow on th—e side, you won’t get this beautifully-presented drink anywhere else! Their house made pumpkin syrup elevates the taste of their lattes. The hot PSL is also just as amazing! The Aussie Grind serves up an innovative breakfast and lunch menu with an Aussie twist.
Coley's Coffee & Wine Bar (former Global Peace Factory), located in Stonebriar Commons, was Frisco’s very first coffee house! They use a distinctive coffee roaster from Seattle, called Caffe Darte with coffee beans originating from Naples, Italy. Coley's Coffee & Wine Bar offers a variety of fall speciality drinks: Ginger spice, Pumpkin Spice and the Maple Brown Sugar latte. You can get any of these with oat milk for an extra-creamy texture. Delicious pumpkin spice pound cake is made daily and is first come, first serve. If you miss out on that though, you can try the pumpkin spice waffles which will only be available during the fall season.
Nerdvana Frisco is a unique scratch kitchen and craft bar serving locally roasted coffee and specialty brews with a twist. Along with their pumpkin spice latte for the fall, they have a Trick or Treat special: try the trick, a spicy Habanero Mocha latte, or the treat, a sweet apple cinnamon latte. Bring out the nerd in you and play a round of classic or modern board and video games while sipping on an awesome fall latte or a cocktail inspired after your favorite video game.
The Nest Cafe has the most exquisitely plated brunch in town. The Nest is known for their London fog and lavender lattes, and for their Winnie the Pooh latte art. Their pumpkin pie latte is perfect to pair with their delicious breakfast menu items. Such a yummy spot to check out this fall!
Kona Reserve Coffee located in Starwood partners with family owned, Hawaiian farms to bring you deep, rich specialty coffee. Their fall favorites are Pumpkin Patch Chai Latte made with homemade pumpkin maple syrup and chai tea powder and a Boo-Berry Latte made with delicious blueberry and hazelnut syrup, each served with beautiful latte art.

Regular menu items include specialty coffees, teas, gelato, smoothies, breakfast sandwiches and musubi. The dining room is bright and airy and a great spot to meet friends or have a business meeting.
Located in the Echelon at the Summit and also on Main Street in historic downtown, Karmic Grounds is a full-service coffee shop featuring specialty coffees, beer, wine and quick bites. To experience autumn in a cup, try their creamy pumpkin butternut spiced latte complemented by hints of maple, brown sugar and cardamom. For a sweet treat, try their pumpkin cold-brew donuts which are vegan and gluten free or their pumpkin loaf with maple icing, also gluten free. Karmic Grounds has ample seating inside and out and has a dog-friendly patio.
