Searching for Connecticut’s Best Apple Cider Doughnuts

If you follow my food page, you saw that last fall I did a mini tour, searching my home state Connecticut to find the best apple cider doughnuts. Check out the places I have visited, the doughnuts I have tried, and read about my favorites!

Rogers Orchards

336 Long Bottom Road

Southington, CT 06489

Rogers Orchards was one of my first stops on my apple cider doughnut tour and also happened to be one of my favorites! They had two different varieties that I tried- apple cider and apple fritter. Both were great, but the apple cider doughnuts were amazing!

Blue Jay Orchards

125 Plumtrees Road

Bethel, CT 06801

Next stop on the tour was Blue Jay Orchards. These apple cider doughnuts were such a classic! Light, airy and fluffy!

Neils Donuts

83 N Turnpike Road

Wallingford, CT 06492

Neils Donuts is a must-stop spot for doughnuts in Connecticut, so of course I had to make a pit stop along the way to my next orchard. Unfortunately, they did not have an apple cider doughnut, but I picked up a few of their Apple Filled (so good) and raised cinnamon sugar (pictured below) to try!

West Egg Cafe

20 Sherman Hill Road

Woodbury, CT 06798

West Egg Cafe had amazing apple cider doughnuts which were so yummy and fresh! The doughnuts were adorable and everyone at the cafe was super friendly- I highly recommend stopping by, even if it is not for these doughnuts. (I really LOVED their selection of unique Benedicts- the Low Country was so tasty!)

Silverman’s Farm

451 Sport Hill Road

Easton, CT 06612

Silverman’s Farm has been a place I visited often during my childhood, so taking a bite of their apple cider doughnut brought be back to being a little kid again visiting their petting zoo! Their doughnut is the classic apple cider doughnut, but I LOVED their cider (I remember visiting the farm back when the cider was pressed right at the orchard). You can read more about the cider at Silverman’s Farm this fall when I complete my Apple Cider of Connecticut Tour.

Stew Leonard’s

100 Westport Ave

Norwalk, CT 06851

I can never complain about anything from Stews- it is always a W. These doughnuts were a little heavier than any of the others that I tried, but so delicious. Check out that sugar coating!!

Beardsley’s Cider Mill and Orchard

278 Leavenworth Road

Shelton, CT 06484

The apple cider doughnuts from Beardsley’s Cider Mill were much different than any other of the ones I tried on my tour. They tasted almost as if they had a green apple flavor!

Wright’s Orchard

271 S River Road

Tolland, CT 06084

Tip: Wright’s Orchard is cash only!

I was not expecting to find doughnuts at Wright’s Orchard and stumbled upon it by accident when visiting the area and looking for a place to pick apples. The doughnuts came in a bag with several, and were crunchy on the outside and soft inside with just the “wright” amount of cinnamon sugar!

Lewis Farms

384 Belleview Ave

Southington, CT 06489

Lewis Farm had a unique way to serve their apple cider doughnuts- in an apple cider donut sundae! Now say that 5 times fast!

Plasko’s Farm Creamery and Cafe

670 Daniels Farm Road

Trumbull, CT 06611

I have been to Plasko’s countless times for their ice cream, but was surprised when Craig Behun from @cticecreamtour messaged me to let me know that Plasko’s had apple cider doughnuts too! They were small in size, but mighty in taste and definitely were in my top picks of favorites that I had tried. These babies were super light and fluffy and sooo full of cinnamon-sugar! Plasko’s even had apple cider slushes to help wash it down!

BF Clyde’s Cider Mill

129 N Stonington Road

Mystic, CT 06355

You might already know that Clyde’s Cider Mill is the oldest steam-powered cider mill in the United States, but did you know they have apple cider doughnuts too? I cannot wait to visit Clyde’s again this fall for my Connecticut Apple Cider Tour! Make sure to follow my food page @trishxdish and let me know your favorite local spots for apple cider!
