Hara Donuts - Yokohama Motomachi
While Hara Donuts is a franchise, each shop tends to have its own particular ambiance—it would be a shame to write them all off as generic. This shop, located at one end of Motomomachi Shopping Street, speaks of subtle Japanese design influences.
The donuts themselves are definitely different from the North American variety—just a hint of sweetness, with a soft, crumbly texture. Simple, but good. I wouldn’t say “great” because then you would be disappointed—but the experience itself is relaxing.
The Motomachi shop offers a special limited-edition item on its menu—ice donuts—that is to say, a classic Hara donut topped off with a scoop of vanilla ice cream. I ordered an iced coffee as well, and the total came to less than 1000 JPY. 3 stars-2 for the atmosphere, 1 for the decent but not mind-blowing sweets.
