Best Donuts Around

The cake doughnuts were wonderful and the coffee was delicious! We arrived at about 8:15 and had to wait in line; but is was well worth the wait. The seating area is very small so you might prefer to get your sweets to go. We would certainly visit here again.

People come from everywhere to eat here! We got there at 8 AM and the line was out the door. The staff is very helpful, and of course the donuts are unlike any other. If it wasn't so busy we would have tried more things.

My husband is a doughnut fan. He had two glazed and I had a chocolate iced doughnut. We both had iced mocha smoothies rather than regular coffee since this was a mid day treat and the temperature outside was in the high 90's. We were very impressed with the service and even more impressed with the taste which was sinfully... More

Parents live in Ocean Springs. When we come to visit every summer, we make our annual trip to Tatonut. Best tasting donuts hands down. Great service. Go early, there will be a line outside.

Got there around 4pm and they still had some donuts left. Friendly staff. Thought the regular glazed was tastier than chocolate iced. Donuts were a good chewy consistency. They close once they run out or by 5pm.

One of the best donut shops in the South. Tatonut is no ordinary Krispy Kreme, and no offense to the KK fans; but a Tatonut donut is an experience everyone should try. Get there early as they usually have a line around the block.

I thought this looked like an interesting place, and boy, was I right! The donuts here are delicous, coffee is very good too. It is a small place, but perfect for on the go in the morning. My husband and I were visiting the Biloxi area, and the staff at our hotel recommended to stop here before we left. The... More

This place has a huge cult-like patronage. I've seen people standing in line, outside the door, on a cold, damp February morning. Maybe I'm missing something, or my tastebuds are not evolved enough to appreciate it, but there's nothing that I can discern about a "tato-nut" which is any better than any other doughnut.

Tatonut has a unique recipe for their donuts and they melt in your mouth. The Persian is phenomenal. They have a lot of variety in donuts and several coffees from which to choose. Service is great. They are always busy and frequently sell out before the time to close. If you have not been this is a must. They also... More
