Federal Donuts Philadelphia Anyone who knows me well knows that I have a major sweet tooth. When my friend suggested that we have hot donuts and fried chicken for breakfast on our first morning in Philly, you should have seen my eyes light up.

Friends Laughing Bright Winter Coats So we hopped in the car and drove to Federal Donuts. Can I just say- this place is awesome! First of all, when I say hot donuts, I mean piping hot, fresh out of the oven, delicious donuts. We tried a few different flavors- lavender vanilla, spiced, and cinnamon sugar- and they were all scrumptious. They also have glazed options that I’ll have to go back and try next time.

Cinnamon Donut Federal Donuts Philly The people at this store are so friendly and threw in an extra donut with our order. Before our chicken was even ready, we’d pretty much demolished those donuts.

Oh boy, that chicken. You can order different dry rubs or glazes with your chicken, so we decided to try the coconut curry rub with the honey ginger glaze. It was good, really really good. One of my friends said it may be the best fried chicken she’s ever eaten. Federal Donuts- you had me at “donuts and chicken.” See you next time I’m in Philly!

    I don’t have much of a sweet tooth but the idea of hot donuts is sort of making my mouth water…

    What a great concept for a restaurant – I would love to have a real doughnut for a change, and the chicken sounds amazing!

      Yes, the menu is simple but the items are extra delicious. Wish they had an NYC location too!

    Whoa, hot donuts sound so amazing and I would never guess that eating it with fried chicken would be tasty. Definitely a nice treat, I’m sure! I’d love to try it though I’m afraid to fall too much in love. Ha!

      Yes, I’d heard of fried chicken and waffles, but not fried chicken and hot donuts! It was so tasty, but you’re right, very dangerous- I’m still thinking about it a week later! :)
