Federal Donuts - the specialist in fried chicken, doughnuts and coffee - is setting up its third location, in a brownstone at 3428 Sansom St. (267-275-8489) next to Doc Magrogan's and across from Penn Law School in University City.
It opens with doughnuts at 7 a.m. Monday, March 10. (Chicken starts at 11 a.m.) This location will run daily, 7 a.m. till 7 p.m. or sellout.
Despite the steps leading to the door, this location is built for speed with a counter and a fair amount of table seating. (No camping out here, Quakers. There are zero electrical outlets.)
Two new "Fancy" flavors ($2 each/$20 a dozen) will debut: Marshmallow Marshmallow and Chocolate Covered Strawberry, joining Cookies & Cream, Sticky Bun and other seasonal Fancies. Hot Fresh donuts ($1.25 each or $11/dozen), fried to order and served hot, will be offered in two new seasoned sugars: Chocolate Peanut Butter and Orange Dream.
