So many choices. We read about Gibson's on TripAdvisor and thought we should try it. We didn't know it would be 30 minutes out of our way but we decided to go anyway. We were not disappointed. We each selected 3 different donuts and we were not disappointed with any of them.

This is a wonderful place to find classic and not so classic donuts. The only problem is that on weekend mornings it is crowded. Don't plan to eat in then. Gibson's produces an incredible amount of donuts so they are always fresh. You will be greeted by staff who seem to love what they are doing. In a hurry? No... More

So my family knows their donuts- we have 3 children ages 6, 4, and 2, and they can DOMINATE some donuts at breakfast. We were in Memphis for a quick family weekend last week, and we went to Gibson's both mornings for breakfast. The place is adorable, there are rows and rows of mouthwatering donuts, and the staff is friendly... More

To start off I'm Dunkin Donuts woman and not a Krispy Kreme girl. If you like donuts (really who doesn't?) that should explain my tastes. Since I don't live in Memphis I didn't see the point in stretching my donut knowledge but did follow the leader into Gibson's. Well Gibson's is in a class of its own and evidently everyone... More

Worth a stop. Visited on family vacation. Doughnuts were great. We went twice. There is also a Gus fried chicken across street. Do not bother calling in a order. My wife call in order day before we left. When we got there they had her order written down but was not ready

this shop is a wee hidden gem. wish we had one at home. what an amazing selection of doughnuts. too many to choose from but the ones we did try were amazing and they are all freshly made in the bakery in the back of the shop. the cinnamon and apple one was my favourite.

Probably a 10 min jog off the heading north route, but worth it if you love fresh awesome donuts. I'd read the reviews and was delighted to hit the place on a Saturday about 10:30am and find the place busy, but not overwhelmingly so. And plenty of donuts left for us to grab at ridiculously low prices for such delectable... More

Stopped here after eating at Gus's. Tried the Maple Bacon donut and was surprisingly pleased. Also enjoyed the cinnamon twists. Service was excellent. I'll bet the coffeee is good too.

Is it crazy to go here 3 times during a weekend trip? Not if you love donuts! On our first trip here, we had the pumpkin spice donut, blueberry donut, maple bacon donut, and the long eclair type donut (chocolate frosting with banana cream on the inside). We also ordered a cup of coffee. First, I'd like to say, their... More
