It’s that time of year when the popular fall staple known as the Pumpkin Spice Latte returns. Whether you love it or hate it, pumpkin spice everything is back on the menu in coffee shops around Wichita! Here are 6 places to find a pumpkin spice coffee in Wichita..and a few extras like my favorite El Dorado coffee shop and a recipe to make your own Pumpkin Spice Latte at home.

Specializing in espresso and other coffee drinks, Reverie Roasters offers pumpkin spice coffee and pumpkin bakery items at their 2611 E Douglas Ave location.

The open, inviting interior is the perfect setting to enjoy a pumpkin scone or muffin along with your drink.

This unique coffeehouse in the heart of El Dorado at 142 N Main is one of my favorites and completely worth the drive from Wichita.
