Hand Pumped Donuts and Sustainable T-Shirts

United by Blue is a unique clothing shop in Old City that I only just came across, though they opened in the Fall of 2013. They clean up one pound of trash from the ocean for every product sold. Plus their goods are mostly made of sustainable and organic materials. The product tags are even made out of elephant poop. Pretty cool, but why does Midtown Lunch care? Oh, because they also have a cafe inside. The menu has healthy things, naturally, like salads and wraps, plus an intense coffee and tea menu. Most importantly, for my purposes, are the HAND PUMPED to order donuts.

Donuts come from Frangelli’s in South Philly. A sophisticated and decadent amaretto butter cream is generously pumped in to the donut, which then gets a hit of powdered sugar. If you are rummaging through the Old City boutiques, you shouldn’t miss this hidden treat.

Cronuts are also included in the baked goods offering, but that is so 2013.
