Mi-Lady Bakery

275 Brumby Way, Tifton, GA 31794

“We’ve been here since 1959. I’m third generation in. My grandfather started it. My dad is still active as well as my sister,” said co-owner We’re most known for our donuts, scratch-made donuts. We’ve been doing them since day one. All of the formulas we used were developed by my grandad. We make a fresh product.

“We make everything from scratch every day, and I think a lot of people now are appreciating that.”

K&K Custom Creations

201 N Central Ave, Suite J, Tifton, Georgia

Hours: Tues- Fri 10 AM- 6 PM

“K&K Custom Creations was a home-based operation. We started about two and a half years ago and we outgrew the home, so we decided to step out on faith and start with a storefront,” said owner Nakia McCoggle. The all-time favorite is the red velvet and the key lime. That’s a southern favorite, and they love the pecan cupcake. It’s very good. That’s one of our number one choices here.”
