Where to get your pumpkin spice latte fix in Dubai this year
Cure your cravings at these top Dubai hangouts…
Can you feel that? The temperatures are dropping, the breeze is cooling, the clouds are forming and winter is on its way. Before it gets too cold though, it’s that time of year when Dubai residents pretend that they live in a city with defined seasons and descend on Starbucks for their annual autumn tradition: sipping on a Pumpkin Spice Latte.
However in true 2020 fashion, that won’t be happening this year. It seems Starbucks had some operational issues and couldn’t deliver the prestigious ingredients to the Middle East. Don’t panic though… Several outlets in Dubai have stepped in to ensure that ‘PSL’ fans don’t have to go without.
Here are four places to find a pumpkin spice latte in Dubai in 2020.
