Who doesn't love a good donut? Mochinut has a new location at 2704 E. Main Street, and it couldn't be more sweet. Their donuts are a mix between an American-style donut and Japanese Mocha, and the combination works wonderfully. You'll notice that the texture of their donut is a little different than the ones you may be used to, and that is due to the rice flour they use in their baking. Make sure to grab some, and also dive into their crispy, rice flour hotdogs and wash it down with one of their quenching bubble tea beverages. Your taste buds will thank you.
