Paczki Guide: Where to go in Hamtramck

Paczki Day! Like coneys, Vernors and Sanders the paczki is a Detroit staple! You’ll find them plenty of places February 25th, but if you want the real thing, head to Hamtramck.


New Palace Bakery
9833 Joseph Campau St, Hamtramck, MI 48212
Bundle up, get in line and wait for a packzi so big you’ll need both hands to hold. And with unique offerings like Fruity Pebbles and Strawberry Cheesecake, you’ll want to place your order early.


New Martha Washington Bakery
10335 Joseph Campau St, Hamtramck, MI 48212
Get your original punczki local and even send an order to family living across the country, at this family-owned Hamtramck bakery.


The Family Donut Shop
11300 Conant St, Hamtramck, MI 48212
Eat like Anthony Bourdain (on ‘No Reservations’ not ‘Parts Unknown’) and stop by this unassuming spot for the jelly filled goodness.


Small’s Bar
10339 Conant St, Hamtramck, MI 48212
What’s better than a packzi? A vodka flavored packzi! Party all day at Small’s but come early for the packzi because they will sell out.


Bon Bon Bon
11360 Joseph Campau, Hamtramck, MI 48212
Okay, okay not a packzi per se, but the packzi chocolate is too good to not make the list.


Want to run off the calories of your favorite packs? Sign up for the Paczki Run on Saturday, February 22nd and the sweet treat will be your reward.



Due to COVID-19, After 5 Detroit has paused operations indefinitely.
