There is very little in life that cannot be improved with a hot drink. It can warm us up, or cool us down. The arrival of fall brings warm scarves, plaid clothing, falling leaves, and a return to baking. However, there is nothing we appreciate more about this season than all of the delicious seasonal flavours that appear at our adored coffee shops. These warm drink masterpieces soften the pace of life. Think about it, you simply cannot “guzzle” a hot drink.
What will your new “go-to” be this autumn season? Pumpkin spice latte, caramel apple steamer, Hazelton mocha, peppermint hot cocoa, salted caramel latte, or apple pie latte. These are only a few of the creative possibilities popping up at our Victoria coffee establishments. Embrace the season that is upon us and support our local coffee shops by sampling their new fall menu options. Here are a few venues that are part of an ever-growing list. Please check websites for location and up-to-date hours of operation.
