Federal Donuts North Reviews
These donuts are definitely unique! The flavors change with the seasons, which is nice. Pumpkin was a happy sight for me as autumn just started. As odd as it sounds though, they’re too sweet. They’re all covered in glaze and then loaded with more toppings and drizzles…it’s a lot. I could barely eat a whole one. I’m in sugar overload. But, this is simply my taste buds being a bit different. Lol The staff was extremely friendly and I tried Vietnamese Iced Coffee for the first time ever. This was an experience I’ll only find in Philly. Thank you!
For no reason, I waited a long time to eat here and then I read an article mentioning that their coconut curry wings are very good, so I decided to check them out and they don’t even serve coconut curry wings or the chicken sandwich on a glazed donut that we saw online. But service was friendly and we decided to stay. We got some over priced donuts, the best is the cinnamon sugar and the strawberry one was real good. But their sandwich was ok, nothing to brag about. Their Za atar fries is just like black pepper seasoning. Pretty disappointing. The place is cute.
C’mon, it’s Federal Donuts ! What is there not to like? Every town should have a go-to donut shop and for Philly it’s Federal Donuts. Yes, they have the fancy donuts for the gourmand but if you like a more traditional donut, they have those too. I enjoy almost all of them (they’re not making them just for me, so that’s fine – there’s something for everyone… assuming you like donuts [what kind of monster doesn’t like donuts?!?!]). Did I mention the chicken? Word is that it’s pretty fantastic. I had a breakfast sandwich and let’s just say that in my scramble to gobble it down, I forgot to snap a pic. It was delicious and the spicy relish made it extra-special
I’ve been coming here for years with my kids and husband. Today I ordered 7 chicken sandwiches along with a dozen donuts. EVERY SINGLE SANDWICH I GOT WAS BURNT & ALMOST BLACK. It wasn’t even good enough to eat as it even tasted saltier than usual. I’m not even driving back since I live in Jersey and refuse to go back. But come on, have some ethics. You know you burned the batch then remake it even if it takes a little longer. I called 4 times, the place is empty (cause I just left there and there’s 3 employees) – someone can pick up the phone. Thee worst $100 spent thus far. I’ll take the longer drive and go to Samson instead. Absolutely Ridiculous.

I’ll give 2 stars for the donuts & coffee but honestly folks, DONT ORDER THE CHICKEN SANDWICH!! Once upon a time it was juicy, tender, crispy & seasoned perfectly but every one I’ve had over the past year is gross. What’s worse is that they charge $8 for a cafeteria bun with an overdone stringy dry chunk of something resembling chicken. I tried to eat it because I was starving and couldn’t just toss $8, but in hindsight the $8 would’ve tasted better.. sooo tough.
Unless you’re gonna change something about the preparation I think you should take it off the menu. I’m really tired of giving it another chance, only to find out it’s even worse. Realistically I’ve probably thrown $50+ in the trash, hoping that they were dealing with Covid problems and that delicious sandwich from years ago would come back. But I give up.. Here is a photo of today’s disaster,
We went toward the end of the day so they were out of most donuts. The chicken sandwich was delicious but the fries were a little dry.
Nice building with parking. Friendly staff. Writing this as I wait for my donuts. I expect the taste to be up to par with past experiences!
The chicken is good but not good enough for the price. The donuts though? THE DONUTS THOUGH?? Amazing. Absolutely worth it. Fantastic. Try something that you wouldn’t normally, I got a bunch of weird ones and the only one I didn’t like was the chili mango donut. That one was weird, but the rest probably the best donuts I’ve ever had.
I give my chicken sandwich a 2. The fries and sauce they give were good. I do want to go back and try the donuts. However for the price of this tiny chicken sandwich I would never go back and get that.
Quite possible that Federal Donuts has the best chicken fingers on the planet. The chicken wings are also fantastic.
