My Love Note: To put it frankly, Federal Donuts is what every stomach would dream about, if stomachs could dream. That sweet aroma, those fresh donuts, that sumptuous fried chicken; how could you not be enticed?
If that brief little description sounds incredible, just wait until I tell you how it tastes…LIKE HEAVEN…if heaven was to be deep fried. One bite of their Turkish mocha doughnut or of the honey-glazed fried chicken and your taste buds will be giving you a standing ovation. To say that this is the best breakfast/lunch joint in the city, would be a gross understatement to all that the beautiful Federal Donuts has to offer.
If you have not yet had the pleasure of visiting one of Federal Donuts’ two locations (South Philly and Center City), I recommend that you do so immediately. Do not pass go, do not collect $200, just go there! Hot, fresh, gooey donuts and spicy, tangy, crunchy fried chicken. Life doesn’t get much better than that.
On a dreary Sunday morning in Philadelphia, the promise of a delicious Federal Donut is the only thing that can lift my head from the pillow. This wondrous establishment truly is, “the best part of waking up.”
