At the merest hint of fall, we are ready to break out anything pumpkin-related at all: pumpkin lattes, pumpkin pie, pumpkin cupcakes, pumpkin pancakes, pumpkin beer, and pumpkin cheesecake. We could go on. It’s more like an obsession than a hobby at this point. The smell of cinnamon and clove and nutmeg takes us away to a place of momentary euphoria. It’s a beautiful thing.

Where to Find Local Pumpkin Coffee Near Greenville, SC

Liquid Highway

Spill the Beans
531 S. Main Street, Greenville | 864.242.6355
Pumpkin Caramel Latte is in, which is way better than a certain large coffee chain’s pumpkin coffee. Spill the Beans can add the pumpkin flavor to any of your favorite drinks. They usually carry pumpkin cheesecake as well.

Tandem Creperie and Coffeehouse
2 S Main Street, Travelers Rest | 864.610.2245

Flying Fox Coffee Co.
215 Trade Street, Greer, SC

Head to Downtown Greer, SC, and walk down Trade Street to Cartwright Food Hall to grab a coffee from Flying Fox Coffee Co. that screams fall bliss.
