Gibson’s Donuts in Memphis, TN

I found this place based on doing some searches on the web about Memphis. I stumbled up this blog,, and she writes up about everything that moves in Memphis! She recommended this place and noticed the high ratings on Urbanspoon and of course, I had to go check it out!

I am so in love with doughnuts! They are my weakness and going this place was going to be such a treat for me!

I ask the girl at the counter to recommend their most popular donuts because I was not going to hold up the line with me starring at the many varieties of donuts. I ended up buying half a dozen for all under $4. What a deal!

I ended up getting the Old Fashion Glazed Donuts, Cruller, New Orleans Buttermilk Donut, Crumb Cake Donut, Bavarian Cream Filled Donut, and last but not least…. SUGAR GLAZED!—my all time favorite kind of doughnut!

Don’t you dare think that I was going to eat all of that alone; I ended up sampling a piece of everything but eating the whole entire sugar glazed donuts. Melt in your mouth! So Mega Yummo!

This little shop is cozy and nostalgic décor with hints of University of Memphis paraphernalia in random spots of the store. I did see a group of senior citizens hanging out at the table people watching, reading the paper while enjoying their cup of coffee. And then there are the families coming in for their sugar fix and picking up dozens to go.

I didn’t realize that this shop is open 24 hours but that is good to know for next time when I am here in Memphis again.
