The lines out the door explain it all; people across the city crave deep-fried joy. The original location for Federal Donuts in Pennsport has perfected the combination of Korean-style fried chicken and delectable donuts, selling out regularly since opening in the fall of 2011.

Early risers can choose from fancy donuts with changing flavors like mint chocolate cookie, lemon bar, maple bacon and spicy PB&J or hot and fresh donuts with a dusting of strawberry fennel, turkish mocha and more.

Fried chicken aficionados wait in line regularly to sample the ever-rotating list of rubs and glazes including dill pickle, coconut curry and cowboy coffee.

Coffee, of the hot and iced varieties, round out the incredible delicacies available at this triple-threat.
