As the calendar officially flips to fall this weekend, we take a look at the apple cider donut, one of autumn’s finest treats.

From small bakeries to sprawling orchards, Philadelphia’s western suburbs have some of the most scrumptious apple cider donuts. These locally made treats showcase a combination of the top produce and bakeries the Main Line area has to offer. Here are some of our favorites.

Northbrook Marketplace

1805 Unionville Wawaset Rd., West Chester

Family-owned and -operated, this West Chester gem is located in a restored 1850s fieldstone barn. Its apple cider donuts are made fresh and can even be found in the indulgent cider donut French toast dish, available for brunch.

Highland Orchards

1000 Marshallton-Thorndale Rd., West Chester

Stretching across more than 200 acres, not only does this West Chester farm offer mouthwatering apple cider donuts, but it also dishes up apple cider donut bread pudding and cider donuts with a vanilla filling. You can pick your own produce or purchase it in the market, along with homemade pies, cheese and other goods. Hayrides, a corn maze and apple and pumpkin picking round out the fall fun at Highland.

A Delaware County staple for more than 100 years, Linvilla is synonymous with all things fall. Its cider donuts are made fresh every morning with the farm’s own apple cider. Fresh produce, baked goods and gourmet specialties from throughout Pennsylvania and around the world are also offered at the farm market. What’s more, this beloved orchard is a multi-time Best of the Main Line and Western Suburbs winner.

Owned and operated by the same family for 38 years, Beiler’s Doughnuts is a must-visit in Philadelphia’s Reading Terminal Market. In recent years, it expanded to a second location in Lancaster. All of its baking occurs onsite. Alongside the classic apple cider donuts are apple fritters and harvest apple donuts, or vanilla iced donuts with apple pie filling. Delicious!

Not only does Weaver’s Orchard embrace the fall season with apple cider donuts, but it does so with peach fritters/donuts and pumpkin donuts, too. These tasty treats are available in the farm market from 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. every day of the week except Sunday, but make sure to get there early while the pastries are freshest.
