We have friends that will literally drive more than an hour to get the potato doughnuts. The only downside is that he is not open on Mondays and Sundays. And get there early before they sell out! The early bird gets the tato nut! These tatonuts are just wonderful. Well worth it.

Nothing compares to the taste of these special treats. I only wish they would open a store nearer to my home.

Great donuts! But if you don't get there early, they may be sold out. Rain or shine, people line up in the wee hours for their Tatonut bliss!

I first tried Tatonut donuts in 2003 and couldn't believe I found a donut I liked better than Krispy Kreme! The donuts are so good that there isn't a word to describe them!! Tatonut is 35 minutes from my house and I don't get to go there often, but when I do it's well worth the drive!!! I recommend them... More

Beats any chain you can think of. Home made, local, VERY popular in Ocean Springs. Lots of variety and reasonable prices too!

* Staff was super friendly * The Katrina donuts were not as pretty, but sold at a nice price * I highly recommend anything with their chocolate. Really tasty. * Plan to spend some time walking around the area. Ocean Springs is a great little town. Great experience overall.

Good, not great. Can't tell any difference between these and Krispy Kreme or any other ordinary glazed donut.

This is one of the best little donut shops you'll find. Make sure to get there early or you'll miss out!

Everyone raves about this place. Personally I didn't find anything impressive about it other than the history.

We had pumpkin cappuccino and pumpkin spice donuts. The shop is small quaint and the staff is so friendly.
