Federal Donuts, the South Philly coffee, donuts-and-fried-chicken shop that's gotten national attention, will open at 1632 Sansom St.

There are 10 counter seats, making this a takeout specialist.

Doughnuts ($1.25 and $2) come in such flavors as Turkish Mocha, Strawberry-Fennel, Vanilla Spice, Mint Chocolate Cookie, Lemon Bar, Maple Bacon, Green Tea-Sesame, Spicy PB&J and Butter Pecan. 

Customers can order a half chicken or six whole wings ($9) or a whole chicken or 12 whole wings ($17) served with honey glaze donuts and Japanese pickles.

Coffee is a special blend from PT’s Coffee Roasting Co. of Topeka, Kan.
