Fall Feature

“Autumn, the year’s last, loveliest smile.”

William Cullen Bryant

Now I know with this heat wave most people are clinging to summer but it is soon coming to an end, I promise. As much as I would love to keep putting on my shorts and Birkenstocks everyday, I have to say I am looking forward to unpacking my fall outfits( I will admit, not so much for my raincoat) and waking up to the way nature changes every night while I sleep. It’s such a beautiful time of year!

The leaves are starting to turn to brilliant shades of burnt oranges, reds and yellows and when the sun goes down it is cool and crisp. So we’ve decided with everyone sharpening their pencils and heading back to school it was time to welcome the return of the Pumpkin Spice Latte. Our Fall latte is the perfect blend of  fresh ground coffee  with the seducing smell of fresh baked pie and spice, swirled with perfectly steamed milk and topped with homemade whipped cream and delicious gooey caramel sauce.

Come down and wander through our quickly changing gardens with a warm and delicious cup of Fall!
