I love donuts and these are something!

Any place that has a line out the door must have something going right! A must stop for me when heading through Ocean Springs. And, unlike most donuts, these are still nice and moist for a couple of days if you buy too many!

Tato-nuts are made from potato flour and are the best tasting donuts you will find. They are a special treat when we have out of town guests. It's family owned and operated! You'll love it but come early before they run out.

I grew up in NJ where we had wonderful bakeries. I missed that in New Orleans & Indianapolis, but then we moved to Ocean Springs, MS. I have been eating Tatonuts ever since we arrived back in the early '70's. They are without description - being the best EVER!!!! Oops, we don't eat in so I really can't rate the... More

We were disappointed on Thursday, when we drove by at 10 am only to find the Sold Out (closed) sign. Took a chance at 9 am on Friday and were pleasantly surprised to be able to walk in and order exactly what everyone wanted. These donuts are melt in your mouth, no chewing required. Must try these if you get... More

These, along with Brit's doughnuts in Carolina Beach, are the best doughnuts I have ever enjoyed. Not too doughy, not too airy... They melt in your mouth. Don't be scared off by the line of people outside the shop waiting for their turn to order- it's a quick turnaround, and worth the few minutes of waiting.

Opens early very early and stays open until sold out. Nice location on main street Ocean Springs. You can't miss the place..it always has a line down the street with... More

When business associates, friends or family come to visit, we always purchase Tatonut donuts. Now they request their donuts every time they come into town.

These donuts (made with potato and wheat flour) are quite famous locally and sell out daily. We tried several types and really loved all the raised varieties. The one called the "Katrina scraps" is fun and delicious and has a unique story behind it. We might have to have a few more before we leave Mississippi! After all, "we're on... More

We don't really eat doughnuts but a friend said we had to try it. Great idea! So light and delicious, not heavy and sort of gross like regular doughnuts. So much fun!
