Memphis Does Donuts Too!

Moved to Memphis about six months ago, but just recently tried Gibson's after seeing it on Travel Channel. Went after dinner (saved room for dessert!) and the line was to the door, so not so bad. I'm thinking the selection and freshness is probably better in the morning, but that is total... read more

This place is a Memphis institution! The favorites are the apple fritters and red velvet doughnuts. So if you love rich, sweet desserts for a splurge - then this is the place; It's best to go in the mornings when everything is really fresh but a visit at anytime is also going to be great.

Any hour that I've been in the store, the donuts have been fresh...Never a disappointment. They remind me of the ones we used to get at small neighborhood bakeries sixty years ago. Always a treat!

Justin Timberlake loves them.. The travel channel and food networks have both stopped by- chances are your grandma and parents called it a tradition.. there's a reason for all of this!! The Donuts are world-class and the service is even better when the owner is there- he treats EVERY customer like they're regulars. There's always a line and it always... More

Gibson's is a long time local shop. The donuts are cooked daily so they are always fresh. They have a wide variety so there is something for everyone. The kids think it's the best ever...and so do I. Well worth a visit.

So... I get it. I like donuts. Doesn't everyone? Maybe not as much I dunno. Gibson's, for me, was kind of a Mecca. They have maple bacon donuts. Yes, no really they do. Fresh, piping hot, fluffy donuts covered in maple frosting and perfectly cooked bacon. No, you're right, I don't know why I eat anything but them either. Gibson's... More

These are without a doubt the finest donuts know to man. must try the bacon, red velvet and apple fritters. You can't go wrong with any of your choices. The glazed will melt in your mouth.

Gibson ' s is my favorite in Memphis! I usually drop by in the evening for "dessert" on my way home from shopping. The donuts & rolls are great & still fresh at night. The coffee is good...not strong like the chain places. You don't have to be a Tiger fan to stop in, but you probably get the best... More
