Warm and creamy with a touch of spice, the PSL combines the best parts of fall into a single decadent drink.
Pumpkin, nutmeg, cloves, cinnamon, vanilla—these are the familiar flavors that make up a Pumpkin Spice Latte. So famous, it has its acronym, Starbucks debuted the pie-flavored drink in 2003 and kicked off the PSL obsession as we know it. But the Seattle-based chain isn't the only place where you can find them. Many cafés in Maryland offer their version of the pie-flavored beverage, as well as snacks and sweets to keep you cozy all season long. Here's where you can grab yourself a Pumpkin Spice Latte in Maryland!

Operating in the Baltimore area, Atwater's serves rich coffee beverages brewed with DC-based roaster Counter Culture Coffee. A 12-ounce PSL starts at $4.45, but you can customize it to your liking with your choice of milk and espresso levels. They offer a massive selection of house-made syrups including, of course, pumpkin. Pair it with some pumpkin bites or a mini pumpkin bundt cake, and you've got yourself the ultimate fall treat.
Brown Mustache Coffee
Tucked away in Old Fox Books in Annapolis, Brown Mustache Coffee provides a welcome refuge on crisp fall days. Enjoy a Pumpkin Spice Latte off their fall menu or other seasonal sips like the Maple Latte and Apple Cider Chai. Everything comes from local vendors, whether it's coffee from Ceremony or pastries from Gluten-Free Bakery Girl and plentiful indoor seating makes the perfect study spot or reading nook—you're in a bookstore, after all!
Common Ground Café
Just when you thought the PSL couldn't be improved on, this Baltimore coffee shop somehow did it. This year they upgraded its PSL to feature real roasted pumpkin juice and autumnal spices, which sounds like a gourmet pumpkin pie. If you can't get enough of the flavor, they also have a Pumpkin Chai Latte and Chocolate Pumpkin Muffin which is gluten-free, vegan, and utterly delicious.

Sip at C Street
A hidden gem on Laurel's Historic Main Street, Sip's café space is ideal for sipping a Pumpkin Spice Latte among other seasonal flavors like s'mores or maple spice. Besides their full coffee menu, they also serve sandwiches, smoothies, and an assortment of bakery items.
