Best apple cider spots

Treat your brood to a cup of the good stuff. 

Cafe Lalo
The UWS mainstay serves cider several ways—fresh ($3), spiced ($3) and even sparkling ($4). 201 W 83rd St between Amsterdam Ave and Broadway (212-496-6031, cafelalo.com)

Hearth
The sophisticated but kid-welcoming restaurant delivers its cider fried. Sticky-sweet apple cider doughnuts ($11 for two) sport a maple syrup glaze and are served with whipped cream on top and a side of apple compote. 403 E 12th St at First Ave (646-602-1300, restauranthearth.com)

Kitchenette
The comfort-food eatery boasts an extensive kids' menu and, come autumn, cider sourced from New York State farms (warm $4.50, cold $3.50). *156 Chambers St between Greenwich St and West Broadway (212-267-6740, kitchenetterestaurant.com). *1272 Amsterdam Ave between 122nd and 123rd Sts (212-531-7600)

Magnolia Bakery
The cupcakery pours local cider (small $1.75, large $2.50) both cold and warm. Whichever your tyke chooses, we suggest she pair her drink with the coconut-chocolate goodness of a magic cookie bar. 401 Bleecker St at W 11th St (212-462-2572, magnoliabakery.com). See website for other locations.
