Butteriffic Bakery & Cafe at 488 S 2nd St - produces the best shortbread cookies we have ever tasted. For 3 years we lived across the street and smelled the butteriffic cookies wafting over. If we ever realized our vision of a coffee shop, we wanted Tamika to be a part of it, and so we first floated the idea almost 3 years ago.
Partnering with Memphis businesses is a focus for
Crazy Gander Coffee Company and you Butter Believe we are proud to partner with Tamika and team.
Tamika Heard has been in the bakery business for two decades. Her parents are the founders of Makeda’s Homemade Butter Cookies. At first, we were buying shortbread cookies for ourselves and soon, as we do with all things we love we were buying tubs of shortbread cookies to share with friends and family.
When we were planning our menu, we
knew we had partner with Tamika on our
one and only combo - The Memphis
(Butteriffic shortbread cookie with coffee).

Cinnamon rolls and coffee are an iconic pairing and our team is always delighted to find a coffee shop with that duo on the menu. Now, Crazy Gander is that place: Homemade gourmet cinnamon yeast rolls from the Lovin' Ovens of Memphis' own, Beneva Mayweather.
Our good friend and Memphis native, Chef Leslie Rowland
met Daniel Watson - the youngest grandson of Beneva Mayweather in the 7th grade. Daniel owns and operates Beneva Mayweather Foods and is working hard to share his grandmothers memorable culinary creations with the world.
Understanding our desire to create a menu for the coffee shop that was tasty and uniquely Memphis, Leslie connected us with Daniel and we've been getting down with #Mayweatherflavr ever since.
Whether you stop in to take down an
XL Cinnamon Roll solo (brave)

we've got the perfect caffeinated
drink to compliment your selection.

Our approach to Memphis business community
Whether you walk through the front door or peep through the open garage door, the map on the west wall of the building is hard to miss. The map shows a comprehensive view of how Memphis appeared pre World War 1. The wall application is a hand drawn/traced rendering of an original map produced by P.F. Collier and Sons in 1911 - the same year 150 Madison was constructed.
This map appears in the Historic Memphis Maps collection at @MemphisLibrary : Memphis Room and @rhodescollege and @brooksmuseum feature the image in their digital archives.
