In search of fresh cider donuts in Westchester

s

Does anyone know where I can get fresh apple cider donuts in a 15mile radius from Chappaqua? There was a great place in Armonk that closed in the late 90's, but now there are townhomes on that site.

Any spots that sell them in Manhattan would be equally appreciated.

    Ecch, I hate the ones at Stew Leonard's. If the Hastings-on-Hudson greenmarket is still open on Saturdays, they had the most amazing, flavorful, moist, crystal-sugar-coated...YUM, I'll see you there!

    Oh, wow, they have a whole blog:

      One of the vendors at the New Canaan Farmer's Market had them a couple of times this summer. a little pwdered sugar is jfood's favorite.

      This brings back memories of Geiger's in Westfield NJ who introduced apple cider donuts to jfood.

        Salingers has the cider and the fresh donuts, as does Outhouse Orchards on Hardscrabble Road. Salingers is near Casafina Warehouse right off 684 just passed Hardscrabble. They also have great homemade pies and breads.

          Yep, went to Outhouse years ago when my kids were little, and they were great. Thanks to everyone who responded.

            I second that recommendation. I grew up right down the road and those two places are the best in Westchester if you ask me.

            Stew Leonards actually make a great cider donut on premises, delicious but need to be eaten fresh! It is lacking the orchard-y feeling of the cider mill, which I also remember quite fondly.

              I didn't realize that they were cider doughnuts at Stew's. I think that the cider-making area near the breads and cakes smells like burned or rancid oil now from the doughnut-making. I don't think that they are very good at all.

                  On Mamaroneck Ave. in Harrison, a bit south of Saxon Woods Park, is a farm stand that makes them "in season", not sure if they make them now. They have a lot of gazebos & sheds in front.

                    I think they have them now. They're pretty good too.

                      They are, but I don't think they're cider donuts.

                      Kneaded Bread's donuts (weekends only) are much, much better than those from that farm stand.

                          Make a left on Westchester Ave. at Main Street in Portchester, continue until just before the railroad bridge. It's on the right, at the corner of the street on which Tarry Lodge is located.
