Where to Order Classic Paczki in Metro Detroit

Local bakeries serving up paczki in 2021 around metro Detroit

View as Map

This year, Paczki Day falls on Tuesday, February 16. The tradition of making paczki for Fat Tuesday began long ago in Polish households as a way to use up shortening and eggs in order to avoid food waste before the start of Lent. It’s an indulgent tradition that continues to this day, with bakeries throughout metro Detroit offering up delectable doughnuts stuffed with fillings such as prune, apricot, lemon, blueberry, raspberry, and custard.

Local bakeries are gearing up to sell large volumes of paczki and are encouraging pre-orders this year to help avoid lines and crowds. Some bakeries even offer curbside pick-up and drive-through services. Be prepared to mask up, follow each establishment’s COVID requirements, and be kind to the staff.

A number of metro Detroit restaurants have resumed dine-in service. The level of service offered is indicated on each map point. However, this should not be taken as endorsement for dining in, as there are still safety concerns: For updated information on coronavirus cases in your area, please visit the state of Michigan’s coronavirus tracker. Studies indicate that there is a lower exposure risk when outdoors, but the level of risk involved with patio dining is contingent on restaurants following strict social distancing and other safety guidelines.
