If the smell doesn't get you, the line out the front door is a dead giveaway that something wonderful is happening in this little donut shop. The lightest, most melt in your mouth donut that I have ever had. Definitely worth the wait.

The doughnuts are great. Only problem is, that they close down all the time for one thing or another. It may be for a day or a week or month. You just can't plan on going and them actually being open. No way to run a business!!!

I must say, I'm not sure what all the fuss is about from all the locals. This is an average donut place. They are good but just average. There is a krispy kreme down the street that is much better. Plus the hours and days open aren't the best.

I love donuts, but I have to say that this are the best donuts I had ever have. My favorite donuts are the devils cake and the blueberry cake.

Fabulous donuts. A local legend. Those who have moved away speak with great passion of the tatonuts. A breakfast treat.

After reading the glowing reviews of this shop, we had to try the donuts there on our last trip to Biloxi. We were there just after noon on a weekday, and the selection was not great, but both the donuts and the chocolate chip cookie we tried were fresh and very, very rich.

I was told by a friend to check this place out as they are supposed to have the best donuts ever. Parking for the shop was a challenge, but a few circles through the area and we were able to park. We arrived at 1 PM on a Wednesday and there were only 18 donuts left (blueberry, cinnamon sugar, and... More

Tatonut has the best donuts around. They are fresh everyday. This place is a favorite spot to go for the locals and a hot spot for tourist looking for a beautiful old town to travel threw and get a bite to eat.
