I love donuts and, as we were in Philly, we decided to try their famous Federal Donuts, a place that, outside of Philadelphia, only made it so far to Miami. 
We went for breakfast and, as we entered, our nose got filled with a delicious smell of fried dough.

It is not a big place, but it is sufficient considering the kind of place where we were. Notice the school tables that render the experience even more fun!

We decided to try several donuts, the fancy ones being already made and the two classics being prepared a la minute.

For the fancy ones, we got the banana cream pie:

These were all cake donuts, not too heavy and not dry. My favorite of all was the churro one that I thought was a great fusion between an American and Spanish classic. The cinnamon sugar that looked very similar to the churro was also delicious, as was the cookies and cream. Unfortunately, the banana cream pie was not: it had an off after taste that I did not like. Despite that, I loved the donuts at Federal Donuts. They are good and creative, with the great idea to reinvente traditional desserts into a donut. But if you go there, i definitely recommend the churro donut: it is so good...

Enjoy (I did)!
