Fresh Warm Donuts and Excellent Breakfast Sandwiches. Service is a bit slow on a Sunday morning but worth the wait. Mainly inside seating but a few tables outside at a dog-friendly place.

Sadly I was here in the morning so I couldn't get a chicken sandwich but the doughnuts were delicious. Friendly service here too and it's a nice space to hang out in.

After extensive on foot exploration of Philadelphia one can philosophically justify a donut tasting session. Federal donuts are arguably the best Philly donuts by some claims. The place is know to provide the three comforts -- donuts, coffee and chicken.

What an awesome combination—amazing donuts and incredible fried chicken. A real treat. Get both the hot donuts covered with various types of sugar as well as the glazed and other flavored donuts. The fried chicken is amazing. I especially love the fried chicken sandwiches.

I thought the doughnuts where just okay. Maybe if I had been there later in the morning to try the fried chicken. The interior is very cute. The seating is set up using old fashioned school desks- the ones that you slide into from the...More
