Autumn might still be a few weeks away, but PSL season is officially here!
Is it us, or is Autumn coming earlier and earlier every year? Though San Diego will remain as sunny and bright as usual, we can’t help but join in the autumnal fun! Who knows, we might even take out our light jacket from the trunk of our car! Regardless, we will be drinking plenty of PSL (though we might get it iced) this season, so we decided to round up our favorite coffee shops offering this iconic drink.
1. Dark Horse
Dark Horse is pulling out all the stops for Autominal enthusiasts like us! They have not one, not two, but three PSL options! The first is their classic PSL, always made with real pumpkins. If you love your mocha, then their Dirty Pumpkin is your drink. Last but certainly not least is their Pumpkin Spice Cold Foam! We have a feeling this will be a hit with our SoCal heat. They range from $4.50-$5.50 depending on the size.
Location: 811 25th St., San Diego
2. S3 Coffee Bar
S3 is known for its intricate and unique coffee and teas. So it’s no surprise that their latest autumnal drink is a home run! They decided to shake things up and mash up PSL with Cookie Butter!
Location: 6225 Mission Gorge Rd., San Diego
3. Better Buzz
Better Buzz offers up a delicous PSL, especially for those who love cinnamon spice! This sweet and creamy drink pairs perfectly with a zucchini walnut muffin! Better Buzz has three different takes on PSL. Both their classic PSL and Pumpkin Chai can be served hot, iced, or blended. They also have a Pumpkin Cold Brew.
Location: 1186 Garnet Ave, San Diego
4. Communal Coffee
This Hillcrest favorite has a classic PSL made from homemade pumpkin puree. Communal Coffee’s pumpkin spice latte is $5.50 or $6.50 for any non-dairy milk substitution.
Location: 2335 University Ave, San Diego
5. Java Earth Coffee
Jaca Earth Coffee is a favorite breakfast choice, and now they just released their Pumpkin Cold Foam Americano, which costs $4.50.
Location: 4978 Cass Street, San Diego
6. The Forum Coffee House
The latest addition to Forum Coffeehouse is their iced pumpkin spice latte. The drink is made from a house-made pumpkin sauce made with real pumpkins. The drink costs $4.50 if ordered hot, $5 if iced, and $5.75 for oat milk.
Location: 4340 Genesee Ave UNIT 110, San Diego
What PSL list would be complete with the one and only Starbucks? They have always been at the forefront of seasonal drinks, and PSL is their most iconic drink! A grande PSL is $4.95.
