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

WOW!! This was a accidental find while we were in Biloxi, MS!!! Feeling like donuts, we goggled donut shops and Tato-Nut came up. We were skeptical, at first, not knowing anything about the establishment. We parked in a quaint parking lot and walked down to the shop. We we walked in, the smell was phenomenal! There was a good crowd... More

Simply said these are the best donuts on the GulfCoast! I have write 100 words to submit this review, so let me say again, the best donuts on the Gulf Coast. Ocean Springs is a quiet artsy town and worth a visit. So walk around and go to the Tato-nut.

I didn.t know they existed but TAKEOUT was an excellent "greeting card" from this restaurant. A friend brought me a simple shopping bag packed with simple looking doughnuts, neatly zip-bagged in pairs. I tasted the first one and there stood Mother before me.

Get there early because when they are they are out. I did not think I could find better donuts than I had already eaten. Boy was I wrong. Whatever they do it is right. Light and luscious offerings of puffy pillows of flavor. I could've eaten the dozen right there, but I was discreet. Went there cause I saw the... More

The earlier you get there the better for selection. The glazed and chocolate iced donuts are amazing!

There was a bit of a line when we arrived, but knew that was a possibility after reading other reviews. We were there about 9am and took a dozen of whatever donuts they had available. Hot off the press, these were the best donuts I have ever had. The dozen was gone in about 5 minutes!

These donuts are light and fluffy. I got the glazed donut and I thought it was delicious as well. I can see why people line up for these donuts, if you ever go to Ocean Springs, please don't miss this quaint little shop.

Waiting across street until line dropped to just a few people. Dashed over and tried a regular glazed. But, as leaving the shop the donut flew from my hand and floated away. Man are these things light!
