The Troy location of metro Detroit doughnut shop Donut Bar and Coffee closes Sunday, April 25, according to a post on Facebook. The Southfield shop remains open, with a new location opening in May on Haggerty Road in Livonia.
“We have made the difficult decision to close our Big Beaver location after many factors that were out of our control,” the post reads. No further details as to what led to the decision to close the Troy location were provided in the post.
Donut Bar quickly became a local favorite when it first opened in Southfield nearly six years ago. The shop goes beyond the typical fried doughnut flavors, offering around six flavor options on the menu like creme brulee, banana split, and s’mores.
Eater reached out to Donut Bar for comment on the closure in Troy.
As COVID-19 cases continue to soar in Michigan spurred on by the highly contagious B.1.1.7 variant, the governor is calling on residents to avoid indoor dining at restaurants for a period of two weeks to help mitigate the spread of the virus. Some metro Detroit restaurants are voluntarily pausing indoor dining for now. But with financial pressures mounting, coupled with safety concerns for staff and patrons and the uncertainty surrounding indoor dining, many metro Detroit restaurant owners have been forced to make tough decisions, including to permanently close their establishments.
