Admit it, we're all tired of pumpkin spice lattes by now...
9 Colourful Lattes From Local Cafés To Brighten Your Day During Gloomy Fall Weather
  • Montreal is a haven for unique caffeinated drinks, so much so that cafés around the city have begun to get creative with their latte flavours during this fall season.
  • We've made a list of lattes that are sure to spice up your life as the autumn blues begin to kick in.
  • See which ones spark your interest below!

The pumpkin spice latte is now pretty much synonymous with autumn. As the leaves begin to change colours, cafés all over start preparing their fall menu, and then suddenly, every person you walk by is holding a pumpkin spice latte. But what the majority of us need right now are some colourful lattes to make our gloomy days just a little bit brighter.

If pumpkin is your thing, this season is undoubtedly your favourite. In Montreal, we have so options for these (now basic) drinks - so many that our very own Alex Melki is taste-testing as many PSLs as possible and rating them

However, this seasonal latte can get kind of boring after a while. If your taste buds are looking for something new, you're in luck, because there are a ton of options for coffee lovers in Montreal - so you can be trying a new caffeinated drink every day if your heart desires!

Coffee shops are experimenting with all sorts of delicious and exciting lattes. From switching the colour of the foam to mixing up the flavours inside, lattes can have more versatility than many of us expect.

We've created a list of some of our favourite autumn lattes that will most definitely take you out of your midweek slump, and have your senses thanking you for switching up your daily caffeine intake.
