Caboose Cones is one of the most magical places in downtown Ocean Springs! Located in a red caboose in the owners’ backyard, this snow cone stand boasts New Orleans-style snow cones, picnic seating area, and even a playscape for the kids!

We might be biased, but Tatonut donuts are the best donuts on the MS Gulf Coast! Ocean Springs is known for this family-owned donut shop with delicious donuts made from potatoes! Don't knock it until you try it! Their wide assortment of donuts brings crowds out daily! Get there early to beat the lines because they tend to sell out fast, especially on weekends. We suggest a “Katrina piece”—a glazed extra piece named after Hurricane Katrina. Or, when in season, their King Cake Donut sprinkled with the colors of Mardi Gras—green, purple, and gold!

800 Cash Alley Ocean Springs, MS 39564
