Get Your Seasonal Sips with the Best Fall Drinks in the Loop

There are pumpkins everywhere and pretty soon the leaves will be turning colors. There’s a chill in the air, and that means Fall is officially here. One of the best things about this change of seasons is the beverages.

Hot chocolate, pumpkin spice latte, hot apple cider – it’s enough to make you wish for those cooler temps! To help you warm up, we’ve found the best Fall drinks in the Loop.

Stan’s Donuts & Coffee

At Stan’s Donuts & Coffee, not only can you get an Apple Cider Cake Donut and a Pumpkin Spice Old Fashioned, you can also sip on some Pumpkin Pie Mocha, Spiced Apple Chai-der, Salted Caramel Apple Cider, and classic Hot Chocolate. The popular California import has a location on Michigan Avenue just north of Millennium Park. While you’re there, you won’t be able to resist their Pumpkin Pie Le Stan, a croissant stuffed with pumpkin pie filling.

Revival Food Hall

Stop into Revival Food Hall and you can get your hot chocolate from a James Beard-award winning chef. Mindy Segal, the owner of Mindy’s HotChocolate, has a location in this modern-day food court, so you can get one of her signature hot chocolate services. This comes with a house-made marshmallow and a whole array of choices, including Mexican, dark, chocolate mint, and boozy.


If you believe it’s not truly Fall until you have a pumpkin spice latte in hand, there are several Starbucks locations in the Loop. You can even make it chai. Just order a chai tea latte with pumpkin spice sauce, and voila, you’ve got your very own pumpkin spice chai latte. You can’t get much more Fall than that.

Goddess and the Baker

You might be the type that wants to put a spin on your seasonal sips. Goddess and the Baker to the rescue. At this Chicago-based chain, you can get a Mayan Mocha, made with espresso, dark chocolate, cinnamon, and cayenne; or an apple butter oat latte made with Oatly oat milk.

Whether you relish sweater weather or miss those flip-flop days, these fall drinks in the Loop will warm you up in no time!
