365 Things to Do in Memphis #21: Get a 4 a.m. Donut From Gibson’s

Posted by Holly Whitfield | January 21st 2020 7943 0

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.

Gibson's Donuts, Memphis, Tenn.

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.

    You should include a link to the series so that we don’t have to go through one by one — because I’m about to start at #1 if I can find it!

      Kevin, I agree! Unfortunately, almost all of the “things to do” have to be updated. I’ll publish a full list as soon as I make it through all 200+ that have been written so far!
