Tatonut has been around for as long as this raised-in-Mississippi girl can remember. Be warned that the line can get long and even out the door on busy days so get there early or just settle in and don't stress as you inch closer to the counter. The Tatonut experience is as much about the atmosphere and the fun tradition... More

All you have to do is is see the line of locals on any morning to know this is one special place. Their highly secret recipe made from potato flour is like crack for donut lovers. If you are visiting the Ocean Springs, Tatonut is a must stop destination. Try the Parisian donut cinnamon swirl.

Best doughnuts by far!The glazed twists and holes are like bites of heaven. The frozen coffee makes a perfect summertime treat.

Visited AGAIN with friends. Wife and I had chocolate twists and mocha iced coffee. Friends tried a cake donut and a filled pastry with iced coffee too. Very good stuff. You can definitely over do it here. The service was much faster this time. Can't wait to go again. If you can, go, but, pace yourself.

Long line, but it moved quickly. I wouldn't say the donuts are the BEST, but they were very good and definitely worth the stop.

I've noticed Tatonut when driving along Government Street for several years. However, we normally passed after doughnut hours. This time, having the luxury of a weekend stay, I stopped in early during my morning walk. Lovely items still hot with a good cup of coffee. Well run operation able to move line quickly. The earlier you arrive the shorter the... More

Potato flour donuts and really good fresh coffee. I don't eat a lot of donuts but these were unique. People were very nice and friendly.
