Dinstuhl’s is a Memphis institution, and so are their chocolate covered strawberries for Valentine’s Day. If you didn’t order ahead, that’s OK, you can still go by and pick up chocolate-covered strawberries, grapes, pineapple, and other candy.

2. Shotwell Candy Co.

French bakery and patisserie La Baguette has petit fours, cookies, and cupcakes all decorated Valentine’s-style, all for a buck or two each. You really can’t go wrong with anything from La Baguette – their eclairs, french breads, and biscotti are wonderful, and they may even have a King Cake or two in stock.

6. Cupcake Cutie

This Memphis staple moved from their Court Square location to a more convenient South Main location a while back—making it even easier for you to stop in and pick up some cupcakes for your cutie. You can mix and match cake flavors, frosting flavors, and toppings, or you can go with the cupcake special of the day.

7. Muddy’s

These days, Muddy’s is operating by pre-order, bake sale, and treat truck only. No shops, but you can walk-in during bake sale hours. Pre-order online for contactless pickup or attend the socially-distanced bake sale at their 2497 Broad Ave. bakery on Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays from noon to 5 p.m., or follow them on social media for weekend treat truck appearances.

8. Lucy J’s Bakery

    Another favorite for sweet treats is 17 Bershire. They have pre-order for Valentine’s and the afternoon tea would be fun for a vday date.
