Bob Libkind, who writes the blog, Robert’s Market Report has the 411 on Bieler’s Donuts and Salads, a replacement to AJ Pickle Patch & Salads. In coming weeks, the Bieler family, which also owns Bieler’s Bakery will reconfigure the AJ stand to add fresh-made doughnuts.
Bieler’s Donuts & Salads will mark the first time doughnuts will be regularly made at the Market in years, though they have been a very popular special offering during the Market’s Pennsylvania DutchFestival.

Michael Klein has the details about Krispy Kreme pulling out of its Center City location at 16th and Chestnut. The equipment is going to the upcoming Krispy Kreme in Havertown. The final day for the downtown location is this Sunday.
The writing has been on the wall for the 16th Street location since Naked Philly spotted that the space was listed back in July. No word on what might replace the doughnut spot.

Wednesday morning is the official opening of Federal Donuts at 1630 Sansom Street. Today some lucky emailers were able to taste test the donuts and fried chicken. Luckily, with offices just a couple blocks away, we were also able to sample each of the chicken flavors today.
The menu offerings are completely different from the Pennsport Federal Donuts, though the fried chicken is still split into glazed and seasoned.

While we were running errands in Center City at lunch today we came across the open door at what will be Center City’s Federal Donuts. So of course we snapped a shot inside the Sansom Street storefront.
The space is pretty raw but you can make out the beginnings of the counter.

Sure, you could go to Wawa at 7 a.m. to wrestle an icing-slathered and probably stale doughnut out of another commuter’s grubby hands to get your morning sugar rush. Or, you could wait for the dessert menu after dinner at one of Philadelphia’s finest restaurants for a twist on the breakfast staple.
If you’re bored with the same old Boston Cream check out these six restaurants serving up daring and delicious dessert dougnuts.
