Minus the iPad on the counter, stepping into Mrs. Johnson’s kind of feels like you’re traveling back to 1975 - their signage and equipment haven’t changed much since they opened, and every donut is $1 or less. Since they open around 7:30pm, the freshest donuts are available for the night owls and while they have plenty of flavors, the traditional glazed is by far the best. Don’t be afraid to order a dozen - you won’t have trouble finding people to help you with them.
