Green Sage Café
Green Sage Café’s pumkin spice latte, on special through December, features a house-made syrup, which is made by melting organic raw sugar in water before adding a dry spice mix, including cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, allspice and clove. Vegan milk options, including coconut, almond and soy milk, are also available. greensagecafe.com. 5 Broadway.
