Dottie’s Donuts, with locations in University City and Society Hill, doesn’t have as many spots in Philly as Dunkin or Federal Donuts–which might be why the lines outside of their shops are as long as the Apple Store when a new iPhone drops. But with reasonably priced vegan donuts ($3 for filled and $2 for classic and deluxe) that can range from blueberry rosewater with a mini pop tart on top to a subtly cinnamony oatmeal cookie, these airy circles of dough are worth lining up in single file for. 

The Sixth Street shop opens up early, runs until the mid-afternoon (or when they sell out), and is best used for takeout since they only have a small counter space. Outside of some of the best donuts in town, they also have a menu full of bagels, coffees, espresso drinks, fresh juices, and other beverages.
