Bacon, Rye, & Cannoli Cream: 9 Bakeries Selling Non-Traditional Paczki

View as Map

Traditional Polish paczki are perfection, but sometimes it's good to shake things up. Meet the bakers who provide paczki for those with dietary restrictions (gluten free folks deserve pastries too) and the bakers who take a Polish tradition and make it their own by adding Mexican influences or Italian cannoli cream. There are also those who push boundaries and do things like hazelnut chocolate rye or maple and bacon...because why not? In short, this is the map for the paczki-loving non-conformists and culinary adventurers.

9833 Joseph Campau St
Hamtramck, MI 48212
(313) 875-1334
New Palace is a traditional Polish bakery with all of the most classic flavors, but they also have some wild cards, like strawberry chocolate delight, chocolate icing with cherry filling, paczki with two kinds of fillings, and something called the "pink ribbon" that is bubblegum pink both inside and outside. They open at 3:00 a.m., so get up early! [Photo]
