Stop by and savor the flavors! You won't be disappointed. I heard the lunch menu is also good. Friendly staff.

visit. When I told the lady that at the window, the baker handed me a warm glaced donut.....perfect! $6 for six donuts(7 if you count the free one) was a little steep but the freshness and taste couldn't be beat. I was there at 7AM on a weekday so you likely need to be there before 9AM.

Another restaurant has been voted as having the best tamales but I don't think you can beat the tamales here. Where else can you get tamales and then finish them off with freshly made donuts? Tried the coconut filled one and it will be my new favorite.

We had researched the area before our visit and this place kept coming up. I can see why, don't be put off by the building, it is the best! The lady who waited on us was super nice and answered our questions. Walked away with a box of assorted donuts that didn't make it to the next day:)

We generally try to hit a Shipley's Donuts everytime we head south but were surprised we couldn't find one in Natchez. So we went in search of any local shop in town. Found The Donut Shop. The Fritters are incredible and the cinnamon rolls are the size of a dinner plate! All the donuts we tried were fabulous. My husband... More

Fritters and doughnuts are some of the best we've had! If you get a chance to stop here make sure you do. What a gem of a spot.

This is a great place for a donut, but you need to arrive before 9:00 a.m. to get a donut! It is along a highway and so there is no real good place to eat the donut other than your car b/c the neighborhood doesn't look very safe or secure. But the donuts was the best I ever ate! :)

Don't let the old wore out building confuse you, they have really good donuts. They open real early and have a good local business, what does that tell you?! I prefer the apple fritters, served warm with a cold milk. Happy employees and a clean kitchen.

Finding great Hot Tamales at the DoNut Shop as we were just passing through Historic Natchez MS was a treat.

I was told this was the place to go for out of this world donuts. I figure plain glazed is the best choice for comparison but they were out of them when we went one morning around 10:30. We got the cinnamon roll twists instead and while they were quite tasty, the bag was saturated with grease. I guess that's... More
