Federal Donuts on 2nd St in Philadelphia. They make them fresh everyday and are open til they sell out. They also start selling fresh fried chicken in the afternoon.

They have hot fresh donuts made when you order:
Vanilla lavender
Apollonia (dusted with cocoa powder, orange blossom, and a touch of pepper)
Indian Cinnamon

They also have "fancy" donuts:
Chocolate Sea Salt
Marshmallow Marshmallow
Crumberry (cranberry glazed with dried cranberries sprinkled on top, with pie crust crumbs )
Chocolate covered strawberry
Sticky Bun
Cookies & Cream


It is a tiny no frills place. Just amazing donuts. And fried chicken.

Every order of chicken includes Japanese cucumber pickles and a honey donut, and is served with your choice of dry seasoning, wet glaze or naked. Seasonings include Za'atar Coconut Curry Buttermilk Ranch. Glazes are either Chili-Garlic Honey-Ginger.

Maybe the question should have been "What's the best donut, fried chicken, and Japanese pickle combo you ever had - and do you prefer wet or naked?"

NOTHING (and I mean NOTHING) compares to a Hot, regular glazed, Krispy Kreme donut.

In Miami, when we see that "HOT NOW" lights flashing, we salivate....yum.... They're that good! I can't find any here in New England. What a pity .

I never like Krispy Kreme. Too soft and sweet.

We have Bob's Donuts on Polk Street in San Francisco. Open 24 hours. Some of the best I've ever had.

I like sour cream glazed donuts. There is a local supermarket that makes them the best but I like them from Dunkin too. Growing up from DD I used to like the fancy coffee roll or bowtie which are still ok but not as good as sour cream glazed donuts.

Definitely yummy.

Though the biegnets at Cafe Du Monde in New Orleans are hard to beat.

Sour cream glazed? I have never heard of those. Or are they cake donuts - sour cream cake is an old fave of mine - I just always think of "glazed donuts" to mean the yeast type - not cake.

I'm not a donut aficionado, although I did try a maple-bacon donut from Duck Donuts in OBX last weekend...it was mighty damn good. And I imagine one day I will try another one. But the only donut that I seriously cannot resist - I mean, if someone walks up and waves them in front of me - would be a hot Krispy Kreme. And even as good as those are, I rarely have them. I just can't eat like that any more.
