If you're in Ocean Springs or the MS Gulf Coast you have to do it! The donut holes melt in your mouth like cotton candy. My family love this place and everybody we take there loved it too.

You can tell the popularity of a restaurant by the folks lined up outside. You wouldn't expect this phenomenon outside of a donut shop would you? Then you haven't been to Tatonut in Ocean Springs. This wildly popular donut shop serves the best Potato donuts around. Made fresh daily, you must get there early to get your fill of these... More

Thank God I live on the Coast. You will never, no matter how far your travels may take you find a donut as scrumptious as a Tatonut donut. Hands down they should be No 1 in the country. This business the family owned and operated by a great Ocean Springs family. My absolute favorite is the chocolate glazed. Depending on... More

These are the best donuts! I have had most that they offer & they are all yummy. My personal favorites are the blueberry cake & the chocolate glazed. I like the chocolate glazed because the donut does not have the clear glaze on it with the chocolate so it's not overly sweet. This place is really easy to find. Just... More

My cashier/waiter was about as friendly as a drone. The donuts were fresh but just average, no bear claws or fruit filled donuts. Very busy place but don't see why, nothing exceptional. Coffee was good though.
