Gibson’s Donuts is Definitely Tastee

If you ask people for the best donuts in Memphis, there are always few places mentioned. But Gibson’s Donuts in East Memphis is always the clear winner.

There were a ton of options – cinnamon rolls, donut holes, cake donuts, yeast donuts, donuts with all kinds of toppings. Gibson’s clearly loves the University of Memphis. One time I stopped by and there were at least four varieties of blue and white donuts in the bakery case. I went with a classic – blue icing with sprinkles.

During breakfast hours (I was there between 8:30 and 9:30 a.m.), the shop was busy, but not overly crowded. There were a lot of families and older people having breakfast in the shop and a lot of business people picking up boxes of donuts to go.

Gibson’s is open 24 hours, so if you’ve got a donut craving or want to get some work done, you know where to go.

    Tas-T-O’s in Arlington has a distinct flavor…almost as good as the original, which was located on Watkins until a few years ago. I have to vote them as my all-time fave!!
