Fall concoctions at Jinkies! Coffee and Hangout, decadent pancakes at Seven Swans and the appearance of Tina Turner’s Buck Tui
Jinkies! Coffee and Hangout’s Creative Fall Beers
The grooviest cafe in town, Jinkies! Coffee and Hangout gets creative with its holiday-inspired beers. The cafe’s Pumpkin Spice and Everything Nice drink breaks the mold of Pumpkin Spice Latte with its marshmallow additive.
This cozy drink still has pumpkin spice but tastes like a campfire with its toasted marshmallow syrup and dehydrated marshmallow topping.
Too sweet for your taste? The no. 1 sale drink is also available as a sugar free option.
Night of the Living Corn, a caramel corn latte, is the perfect drink for horror movie fans. The latte is infused with popcorn, topped with a drizzle of red caramel and, despite looking bloody, tastes deliciously sweet and buttery.
Chai Cider Latte is a sophisticated blend of fall flavors and showcases local produce with chai tea from Hugo Tea Company and apple cider from Louisburg Cider Mill.

Seven Swans Crêperie sweet and savory crepes
Seven Swans Crêperie serves delicious apple pie, but in the form of fluffy crepes. The new menu item consists of a crisp homemade apple filling stuffed and folded into a buttery pancake. To further satisfy your sweet tooth, the sweet treat is sprinkled with an oatmeal crumble and spiced pecans, served with a scoop of vanilla ice cream and topped with a dollop of whipped cream.
Other seasonal dishes gracing the menu are an orange cardamom latte and The Vermonter, a savory pancake filled with rosemary sausage from Wiener Kitchen, sharp white cheddar and maple caramelized apples.

Buck Tui’s You’re Simply the Zest Cocktail
Tina Turner is in the house! Or at least on Buck Tui’s new cocktail menu. You’re Simply the Zest is a sparkling libation complete with Restless Spirits Duffy’s Run Vodka, Builders Botanical Gin and Prosecco. The curry leaves and charred lemon juice provide a smoky flavor up front, which is cut perfectly by the bubbly prosecco.
The aromatic cocktail is a great way to enjoy the last days of patio weather as it takes thirsty diners on a sour, salty and sweet roller coaster ride.
BBQ Buck Tui is located at 6737 W 75th St., Overland Park, KS 66204. Hours vary by day.
