  • I have not been able to eat any other donut and enjoy it after trying Yates. Best cider, donuts & pies I've ever had.

  • Great place, been coming here my whole life, now I bring my kids here. Great family atmosphere, walking trails, not far from the bike trails that go for miles. They offer a lot of cider mill things in the fall but you can't beat the frozen custard and hand dipped ice cream they serve throughout the summer. The have delicious donuts in the summer too. Watch for the weekly specials.

  • Take my nieces and nephews there every October. Been going there since I was a young man. Awesome food all around. Nice river trails for the adventurous group.

  • Donuts were amazing, crispy on outside, soft and pillowy in the inside, and still warm. The apple cider was also great. You can see them pressing the apples inside the place. Place was super busy but it's only because this place is so amazing! There is also a beautiful little walk along the river. I'd definitely go back.

  • Everything at Yates is amazing. From the nature walk to the tour of the mill. Seasonal stands. Best cider and doughnuts in Michigan!

    Jay Merker Sep 13, 2015
  • I love the river, the cider, and the donuts. The cider and donuts are the best.

  • The best cider in southeast Michigan.

  • Love this mill!! Those who think there is nothing to do, probably need a little help. In the summer and fall there are farm animals, a fudge shop, fishing and water fun on the river, a long path through the woods along riverside with many off-side trails, dog friendly with water(the river:)), and not to mention an actual MILL. Not usual anymore- and there's a history lesson as well 😮 They have delicious donuts and cider, and ice cream in the summer/spring! I've never dealt with a crowd- but I also don't go on a Saturday or Sunday afternoon. Probably my favorites CIDERMILL not apple orchard.

    Leandra Moore Sep 22, 2016
  • The best apple cider I've had in my life!!! And please try the donuts! Another level

  • Our favorite Cider Mill! I have been there with my family many times, probably once or twice a year on average during the last 15 years or so. I love walking (and walking our dog!) on the nature trail, the rest of us prefer the donuts and apple cider! 🙂 Great surroundings, relatively secluded and a family atmosphere.

  • One of my favorite cider mills! The Cider & donuts are delicious as is everything else! It's right on the Clinton River with a working water wheel that powers the mill! There are plenty of places to eat outside and lots of trails to explore along the river! Yates Park across the street has a dam and offers plenty of good fishing and BBQ opportunities.

  • Adorable little cider mill, always my favorite spot to get donuts. Beautiful trail on Clinton river to walk down that connects to a large park and in autumn they have goats you can feed.

  • Greatest place on earth!  The donuts and hot cider were amazing.

  • The cider and donuts from this place are awesome

  • Best cider and donuts ever! Family tradition for over 30 years!

    Pamala Boughton Sep 26, 2015
  • Definitely the best plain and cinnamon donuts I've had. Cider is very good. Ice cream sandwich was surprisingly delicious (homemade cookies) and filling (lots of ice cream and thick cookies). They have delectable apple butter, bbq sauce, and jelly.

    Ray McDivitt Jul 17, 2016
  • My favorite for 6 decades.

    Jerry Logan Aug 20, 2016
  • I grew up going to this place. The best of everything. I can't wait to take my kids here when that time comes. I love this place.

    Aaron VanPoucker Aug 7, 2016
  • I've been coming here for more than 35 years. NOBODY'S cider is better than Yates!! It's the best around town, hands down!! Yates is a family tradition. Our kids grew up coming to Yates, and so have our grands. Our youngest is 3 months old....Aubrey will come to adore the great taste, and continue on the path.

    Renita Holliness Sep 4, 2016
  • Best cider mill in Oakland County! Has been a family tradition for at least 30 years.

    Chad Ambrose Sep 19, 2015
  • Good quality products! Best warm cinnamon sugar doughnuts anywhere! Great cider, sparkling cider, apple butter, fresh apples, etc. In the fall is a great time to stop for a treat and pick up a painted pumpkin. They also sell ice cream and fudge.
