6 Memphis Desserts and Treats That’ll Satisfy Your Sweet Tooth

While most people may know Memphis because of Elvis or our musical ties, one thing that any traveler coming to this city will truly remember is our food. And honestly, that’s a big reason why so many of us love the 901! We’ve got some of the best dessert shops and bakeries around town. So, let’s take a look at just a handful that you should try.

Jerry’s Snow Cones

If you haven’t tried a Jerry’s snow cone, wyd?? This staple of the 901 serves up snow cones with a dollop of ice cream known as a supreme, along with other tasty treats like dipped cheesecake and banana splits. Visit one of their two local stores for an unforgettable dessert.

350 Baked

Looking for some vegan dessert options? Then you might just want to try 350 Baked, an online store with offerings around the city (like at the Kitchen Co-Op in Cordova). They also offer non-vegan options, but trust us, all of their sweet treats are worth trying!

Sugar Ghost Ice Cream and Bubble Tea

This spot serves us homemade ice cream and bubble tea that everyone can enjoy. With their wide selection of treats, even vegans and gluten-free dieters can get a scoop or a drink. Just pop by their store on Broad for a bite!

Milk Dessert Bar

This local shop has just about every kind of dessert you could want: cakes, shakes, and even cookie dough. Be sure to check out their seasonal offerings for limited-edition flavors you’ll want to grab before they’re gone. You can even order a custom cake for your wedding, party, or other get-togethers.

901 Bakes

Though there’s no storefront for these treats, 901 Bakes can serve up some delicious pastries, cakes, and more for your next event or party. You can check them out at markets around town, like the Cooper-Young Farmers Market on the weekend. And see what they’re cooking up by visiting their Instagram.















Muddy’s Bake Shop

We couldn’t end this list without sharing a classic! Muddy’s has been serving up some of the city’s favorite cakes, cookies, pies, and more quite a while and, if you haven’t been, you should definitely add this spot to your list!
