  • Federal's donuts are made by...ROBOTS!!! Get these thick cake-style 'nuts rolled in standard sugar or cocoa, or filled with the amazing vanilla-cardamom custard.
  • Dale Cooper would approve.
  • Just make sure you arrive early whenever you do stop by: The crowds are already massive, even this short into its run. Good Korean fried chicken will do that to a city.
  • Opened Oct. 17, 2011, ft. gourmet doughnuts, fried chicken, coffee and more. The chicken goes on sale at 11am and quickly sells out. The donuts are typically gone by noon as well. Foodies rejoice.
  • Get there early, some of the best flavors sell out quick!
  • From chef Michael Solomonov, FedNuts has the masses clamoring for its blend of specialty cake donuts, strong coffee and Korean fried chicken. Be sure to arrive before noon; birds sell out in minutes.
  • Try the harissa chicken! The donut flavors charge every so often; if the banana caramel is available order that!
  • Despite all the wild flourishes of color and flavor, the plain honey doughnut that comes alongside every order of chicken is still the best breakfast weapon in the FedNuts arsenal.
  • A cult favorite among Philadelphians, Federal fills its donuts with innovative flavors (halvah pistachio, chocolate-covered banana) or dusts with the sugar blend of your choice (vanilla lavender).
  • unbelievable fried chicken - definitely try the buttermilk ranch and wash it down with a Jones cream soda - totally worth the hype!
  • Mike Solomonov's fried chicken and doughnuts have become legendary in very short order. [Eater 38 Member]
  • Try the Indian Cinnamon Donut - Just like from farmers market when I was a kid
  • Amazing! Gets busy. Go early.
  • Go beyond sugar and try these freshly fried doughnuts in Indian cinnamon and lavender-scented vanilla:
  • Try the Grapefruit And Brown Sugar Donut - Amazing! Sweet and tart
  • They start selling chicken at 11:45 a.m. But if you get there early, they'll offer a free wing for you to enjoy!
  • I love a fancy donut but a warm, sugared donut fresh out of the fryer is the way to go. Fried chicken before 11am is an extra bonus (served with a honey donut) if you get here early!
  • Fried chicken and fried donuts? A match made in heaven
  • Pink lemonade donuts!
