This place blows away any other places that sell donuts. Very fresh, the chocolate tastes so real! Owned by a family who is a big supporter of childhood cancer (as I believe they lost a child to cancer). I got a chocolate glazed donut and a cup of southern pecan coffee, sat outside on a bench and that donut melted... More

Tatonut donuts are my favorite donuts around. I can get to two donut places before Tatonut, but I pass those up for Tatonut. Tatonut is not to close to me, but when it comes to donuts it is worth the distance. If you are not local, PLEASE try. Make sure to check if it is open.

My wife and I heard about this place via a bellhop at the hotel where we were staying. And needless to say, we weren't disappointed. The donuts are light, very tasty, but they also had enough substance to be satisfying. And on top of that.. they are located right in the middle of a small town, with a great "small... More

Having gone to junior high and high school in Ocean Springs, Tatonut is a welcome home to weary travelers and locals. The flavor of a Tatonut cannot be adequately described, but rest assured that there is no equal in the world. A sparkle within the gem that is OS, stop by and try it. If you are lucky enough to...

I can't add much to my title; there is no better donut, and I'm considering that worldwide, not just Ocean Springs. As sinful as they may be, if you are anywhere near this place pop in and get one. You will not be disappointed.

These donuts were just delicious! Good thing this place isn't close to your home in Mandeville! They are the potato donuts ever!

Forget about all those so called donuts you thought you liked. This is the best you'll ever have. They're so light and fluffy! The only down side is the place is super small and there is usually a line, but that only means it's good and so worth the wait. You have to try when you're in Ocean Springs!

What a great find! The moistest, lightest, best tasting donuts I've ever had. Who knew potato flour would make such a difference. It's located in such a cute setting. Very inviting atmosphere with extremely friendly staff. Grab a donut (actually you better get a dozen) and walk around the awesome downtown of Ocean Springs. Great food in a great setting.... More
