20 Vegan Fall Drinks to Order at Your Favorite Coffee Chains

Here’s your ultimate guide to ordering vegan fall-flavored drinks at coffee chains across the US.

Yep, it’s that time! Cozy blankets, vegan leather booties, and pumpkin-spiced EVERYTHING! Along with the fall season comes the warm and delicious flavors of pumpkin, maple, cinnamon, and chai. If you’re a fan of seasonal coffee and tea flavors, here’s your list of 20 vegan fall drinks to order at your favorite coffee chains.

Note: While we’ve done extensive research, we’d recommend you always advise your barista when ordering to ensure your drink is crafted with all-vegan ingredients.

Peet’s Coffee

Almost any drink at Peet’s Coffee can be made vegan by substituting a milk alternative (oat, almond, or soy) and excluding whipped cream and caramel sauce. Stop by a Peet’s location from now until November 2nd to try their exciting new fall beverages that are bursting in flavor. Sip, sip hooray!

Peet's

Pumpkin Oat Foam Cold Brew

Peet’s hit it out of the park with their new Pumpkin Oat Foam Cold Brew. This glorious drink features Peet’s fan-favorite Baridi Blend cold brew with a creamy pumpkin pie-flavored oat milk foam on top.

Pumpkin Latte

What’s a coffee shop without a pumpkin-flavored holiday drink? This luscious latte features hand-pulled espresso, steamed milk (be sure to sub your plant milk of choice), and a touch of pumpkin spice! Offered hot or iced.

Maple Latte

Not a huge pumpkin fan? This latte has the same espresso and steamed milk as the Pumpkin Latte but it’s spiked with a sweet maple flavor instead of pumpkin! Offered hot or iced with your milk of choice.

Maple Oat Frappé

While we’re on the topic of maple, let us introduce you to the Maple Oat Frappé! This cool and refreshing beverage showcases Baridi Blend cold brew, oat milk, and sweet maple flavors blended with ice. This drink is on Peet’s Members Only Menu, which can be found on their app once you join the program. Be sure to order without whipped cream to make it plant-based.

Vine & Walnut Drip Coffee

Joining the drip coffee lineup at Peet’s this fall is Vine & Walnut, a brew named after the original Peet’s Coffee at the corner of Vine and Walnut streets in Berkeley, California. The medium-roast Ethiopian blend gives off that classic coffee taste with dried fruit, warm spice, and floral tones. Offered hot or iced.

Starbucks

When it comes to vegan options, Starbucks has quite a few. Although their wickedly popular Pumpkin Spice Latte cannot be made vegan, there are other fall-inspired drinks that can! When ordering any beverage at Starbucks, make sure to request non-dairy milk (almond, coconut, oat, or soy) and avoid their whipped cream, caramel drizzle, java chips, cinnamon dolce topping, and protein powder. Any drink with white mocha, caramel brûlée, non-Teavana chai, and pumpkin spice are not veganizable whatsoever.

Starbucks

Apple Crisp Macchiato

The most talked-about drink at Starbucks is the Apple Crisp Macchiato. The brand new beverage, which tastes just like apple pie, showcases layered flavors of apple and brown sugar with espresso, your milk of choice, and glorious caramelized spiced apple drizzle on top. When ordered with non-dairy milk, it’s completely vegan!

Teavana Chai Tea

The Chai Latte at this popular coffee chain may not be vegan, but the Teavana Chai Tea is! Made from a blend of clove, cardamom, cinnamon, and ginger, this bold beverage is sure to put you in the mood for the fall season. Enjoy as-is or add a splash of oat milk for extra creaminess.

Iced Brown Sugar Oatmilk Shaken Espresso

This rich and decadent drink is one of our favorites at Starbucks! A beautiful blend of blonde espresso, brown sugar, and cinnamon are shaken together with oat milk for a drink that is sure to brighten your day. Although the Iced Brown Sugar Oatmilk Shaken Espresso isn’t technically on the fall menu at Starbucks, the brown sugar and cinnamon flavors give off holiday vibes for sure.

Hot Chocolate

Looking for a caffeine-free alternative? Go with a classic cup of hot chocolate! Just ask for yours to be made with non-dairy milk and no whipped cream and you’re golden.

Create Your Own Fall Beverage

Don’t see a drink that fits your fancy? Get creative and customize your own cup of autumnal goodness. We’d suggest ordering a latte with your plant milk of choice and adding caramel, hazelnut, cinnamon dolce, or toffee nut syrups for an extra boost of seasonal sweetness! You can also get a shake of the powdered Pumpkin Spice Topping, which is 100% vegan.

The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf

This coffee chain recently launched a few vegan offerings, including fall-flavored drinks, a Vegan Banana Walnut Loaf, and a chocolate brownie! When ordering from this caffeine paradise, be sure to sub in oat, almond, coconut, or soy milk and avoid ALL powders and syrups, as they contain milk derivatives and/or honey.

The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf

Pumpkin Latte

If you want to go the classic PSL route, this Pumpkin Latte is the move. With the creaminess of pumpkin and a touch of nutmeg and cinnamon, it’s sure to give you all the fall feels in just one sip! Be sure to replace the milk, ask for no powders or syrups, choose between hot or iced, and you’re all set.

Pumpkin Cold Brew Latte

This refreshing drink is lightly spiced to perfection! It’s made with The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf’s signature cold brew, pumpkin sauce, and vanilla bean sauce. When ordered with plant-based milk, this drinkable cup of deliciousness is 100% vegan. Yep, even the sauces!

Pumpkin Cold Brew Coffee

If you’re craving the pumpkin flavors but aren’t ready to transition to a hot beverage, try the Pumpkin Cold Brew Coffee. Once again, ask for no syrups or powders and replace the whole milk with whatever plant-based milk you’re in the mood for.

Pumpkin Spiced Chai Latte

For a bit more spice, we’d recommend the Pumpkin Spice Chai Latte! When ordered hot or iced with your plant milk of choice, this drink is vegan. Maybe even go crazy and order the Vegan Banana Walnut Loaf or Vegan Chocolate Brownie on the side.

Dunkin’

As a general rule of thumb, most Dunkin’ beverages can be made plant-based when you sub in almond, coconut, or oat milk and omit whipped cream. Their vegan-friendly flavor shots include Blueberry, French Vanilla, Hazelnut, Mocha Swirl, Raspberry, and Toasted Almond. The Pumpkin Swirl contains milk, so none of Dunkin’s pumpkin-flavored drinks can be made vegan.

Dunkin'

Chai Latte

One of our favorite autumn drinks at Dunkin’ is this Chai Latte. Featuring a harmonious blend of cinnamon, ginger, clove, cardamom, and nutmeg, this spice-filled drink is sure to put you in the mood for sweater weather. Choose between hot or iced, request plant-based milk, and enjoy!

Apple Cranberry Dunkin’ Refresher

This brand new drink is the perfect item to order to ease into the fall season. It embraces Honeycrisp apple and cranberry fruit flavors with a B vitamin-infused green tea base. For an extra sweet and creamy boost, order the Apple Cranberry Dunkin’ Coconut Refresher which comes with a generous splash of coconut milk. It’s refreshing, energizing, and the right amount of sweet!

Oatmilk Latte

Another item that will soon be a part of our regular morning routine is this hot or iced Oatmilk Latte! The drink is available year-round but can be spruced up with a pump or two of caramel, hazelnut, or toasted almond flavor shots to make it more fall-like. Order it with their Avocado Toast for the ultimate breakfast duo!

Blue Bottle Coffee

If you didn’t already know, all espresso drinks at Blue Bottle Coffee can be made vegan when ordered with oat milk. For the fall season, they’ve got a few specialties you’ll want to try. Here they are!

Blue Bottle

Caffé Mocha

Espresso, steamed milk, and chocolate ganache—what more could we ask for? The largest size possible and extra chocolate—oh, and make sure to sub in oat milk! Available hot or iced.

Hot Chocolate

Another chocolaty drink we love to order is the Hot Chocolate. It’s a great option for those avoiding coffee, and is oh-so-delicious. When ordered with oat milk, it’s 100% vegan.

Hojicha Latte

If you’re a fan of matcha, you’ll have to try Blue Bottle Coffee’s Hojicha Latte. For those unfamiliar, Hojicha is a Japanese green tea with a rich, smoky flavor and reddish-brown color—it’s perfect for the autumn season. Choose between hot or iced, request oat milk, and you’re good to go!
