Best Not-Your-Average Treat, 2017: Everyone knows that the frosting is the best part of a cupcake, so Malvern’s Dixie Picnic gives the people what they want. Baked fresh daily in-house, its Upcakes are cupcakes turned upside down and frosted all over. We can’t get enough of the coconut-covered devil’s food or the lemon-frosted yellow cake.

Best Cheap Eats 2015: Southern-style comfort food served in big portions with even bigger taste is the norm at Dixie Picnic. Get a boxed lunch featuring your choice of artisan sandwich and side, plus a deviled egg and DP’s famously decadent upcake, all for $9.99. Our choice: chicken salad made with pecans and grapes, house-made potato salad, and coconut devil’s food upcake.

Offering Southern comfort food at its unadulterated, made-from-scratch best, Dixie Picnic could’ve found its way onto our list for any number of things, including the sublime potato salad or its signature dessert, the Upcake (a winner last year). Our latest DP indulgence: fluffy homemade biscuits covered in a meaty sausage gravy. Make time for a nap afterwards.
