9 Hudson Valley Spots Serving Apple-Inspired Treats This Season


Apple picking season is upon us here in the Hudson Valley. These 9 locations offer excellent apple dishes and treats to enjoy this fall.

Fall is most enjoyed with delectable flavors of cinnamon, sugar, pumpkin, and of course, apple. Sipping on a steamy caramel latte with a slice of warm apple pie sitting in front of you — there truly is nothing better.  

Angry Orchard


This one you probably knew already, but Angry Orchard is the spot to hit if you are looking to enjoy hard cider this season. Book an experience to tour the orchard and enjoy various draft, canned, and bottled ciders. Or, if variety is what you seek, enjoy a cider tasting flight. Excellent fall picks include the Crisp Apple Cider, the Hardcore Dark Cherry Apple Cider, and the Green Apple Cider. The Cider House offers indoor and outdoor seating, and there is fresh food available from the in-house kitchen.

Capital City Diner  


You can always depend on a diner for delectable apple-themed plates. Capital City Diner offers apple pie French toast topped with sweet apples, cinnamon, and vanilla ice cream. Or, if you are looking for a savory dish, order the chopped apple salad, a combination of mixed greens, apples, toasted walnuts, blue cheese crumbles, grilled chicken, tomato, cucumber, and tangy red onions.

If you’ve never tried crepes, fall is the perfect opportunity. Spend a chilly weekend morning sipping on a chai latte and enjoy stewed cinnamon apple crepes at Dolce. Warm crepes with freshly stewed apples topped with cinnamon and pure maple syrup sound like the perfect fall treat.
