☕️ Brews on Tues: ISO local lavender lattes

👋 Arika here, with a confession.

I am addicted to Starbucks' new lavender oat milk latte. It's the spring equivalent of fall's beloved-by-basic-girls-everywhere pumpkin spice latte — and I can't get enough.

Yes, but: I know Indy has a great local coffee scene.

So, I started a search for a local place to scratch my lavender itch.

  • First up was Fountain Square's Bovaconti, where I treated myself after a long run this past weekend.

Brew of the week: Honey lavender latte

  • Where Starbucks' drink is pretty lavender-forward, Bovaconti's is more subtle.
  • You still get the slight floral note, but it's balanced with the honey.
  • I was afraid the honey would tip too sweet, but it didn't.

Cost: $6 (plus $1 for oatmilk).

If you go: 1042 Virginia Ave.

  • Open daily, 7am to 7pm.
  • Plus: A Carmel location is slated to open late spring/early summer.
