365 Things to Do in Memphis #21: Get a 4 a.m. Donut From Gibson’s
Don’t just get a 4 a.m. donut at Gibson’s because they’re open at 4 a.m. Get one because 4 a.m. is when they taste the best, and because it’s #21 on our list of 365 Things To Do In Memphis.
There are two reasons that Gibson’s already awesome yeast donuts are best in the wee hours:
1. If you’re awake, chances are that you’re pretty hungry.
2. The staff starts cooking fresh batches of donuts around 3 a.m., so the chances are high that you’ll get one that’s still warm.
Gibson’s is open 24 hours a day, seven days a week. They accept cash and plastic, and they’ve almost always got U of M blue donuts for sale.
