Where can you get a king cake in Memphis and the Mid-South?

Where To Get King Cakes In Memphis + The Mid-South

Most folks will tell you to order a king cake from the many bakeries farther south, i.e, Louisiana, that ship them. But if you want to go local, here are a few places to get king cakes in Memphis:

Many people opt order king cakes online and have them shipped to Memphis from Louisiana/South Mississippi. Folks swear by Manny Randazzo, Paul's Pastry, Haydel's, Gambino's, among many others.

I'm sure someone will try to fight me for leaving off their favorite NOLA/other king cakery. Don't panic, just feel free to add your suggestions in the comments.

Sadly, Sucre abruptly closed last year. Gracious Bakery is now shipping King Cake though, and they are divine!

They have king cakes at Thomas Meat & Seafood in Collierville. They ship them in every year. They also serve hot lunches during the week, and there is usually a Cajun-style lunch day with red beans & rice and other items. Give them a call if you want to confirm. (901) 221-8584
