Crave started as a weekend only Dessert Cafe in Downtown Tupelo. The owners are avid travelers and always sought out places to extend their evenings while traveling. These places were almost non-existent. They desired to have a place where people could go and enjoy a date night or just spend time with family or friends. In October of 2014, Brad and Tiffany, embarked on a journey to establish Tupelo's only dessert only cafe. Initially, Crave was only open on Friday, Saturday and Sunday nights. Within just a few short months, Crave became a cult favorite among locals. Since that time, Crave has opened a second location in a neighboring city, Booneville and opened the Tupelo location full-time to include a full breakfast and a coffee menu along with a full line of desserts. Crave is known for their Skillet Cookie. The Skillet Cookie is made from scratch, cooked to order and topped with ice cream. Crave has won the Daily Journal best desserts three years in a row along with Best Dessert in the State of Mississippi for Mississippi Magazine.
Crave just recently purchased two shaved ice stands in the local parks and re-branded them as Fire & Ice. Fire & Ice will feature traditional shaved ice along with a full array of Crave Coffee drinks.
Crave announced the opening of their third location in March, which will be at 800 Park in Oxford MS. Projected opening is July of 2018.
