Editor Kristen here. Fall is my favorite season of the year, especially spending it in Chattanooga. The cooler weather and the leaves changing merit plenty of excitement on my part, but the food and drinks that hit our local menus this season may be my favorite.
Here are some seasonal offerings to check out next time you stop by these local spots:
Sleepyhead Coffee | Caramel apple butter latte | This is Editor Kristen’s favorite off of the fall menu, but if you’re looking to try something a little more adventurous, we recommend the orange ginger latte.
