The East End is home to many local coffee shops where you can indulge in your fall cravings with deliciously decorated autumn inspired classics as well as several creative renditions with a dash of local flavor and personality.

Here’s a round up of the best beverages throughout the East End that’ll fulfill all of your fall fantasies—think apple, cinnamon, maple and of course, pumpkin.

Grindstone Coffee and Donuts

When you’re craving a fall-inspired beverage, Grindstone Coffee in Sag Harbor should be at the top of your “places to visit” list. On their menu for this fall? An herbaceous Honey Lavender Latte, a decadent Peanut Butter Mocha Hot Chocolate and Hot Apple Cider that tastes like a freshly picked apple—slightly sweet, slightly tart—with just the right amount of cinnamon. And for the eco-friendly enthusiasts out there, you’ll be happy to know that they offer bamboo straws for sipping down their delicious beverages.

Although their espresso is top notch, the menu at Sag Harbor’s Sagtown Coffee has plenty of sweet treats to sip on that are definitely worth checking out this fall. For a sweet but spicy option, try their Chai Latte; for a sweet but salty treat, their Caramel Macchiato is mouthwateringly good.

Looking for a healthier option? Sagtown’s Sutra Black Hot Chocolate—a charcoal activated drink—is a delicious treat that’ll satiate your sweet tooth while also boosting your energy and metabolism naturally. If you’re visiting the East End with your kids, Sagtown Coffee’s Ghirardelli Hot Cocoa is sure to get them excited.

With nine locations in New York (two of which are on the East End), Jack’s Stir Brew Coffee certainly knows how to serve up quality coffee and tea—but the menu at both their Amagansett and Sag Harbor location is chockfull of the drinks you’re going to want to cure your fall drink cravings. Rather than filling up on pecan French toast doused with maple syrup, give the Mountie—a Maple Cinnamon Latte—a try. If cinnamon in the fall gets you giddy, then the Happy Jack—a Honey Cinnamon Latte—is a must.
