|Sister Pie continues to push the boundaries of paczki technology. Case in point: a cranberry-lemon poppy seed pączek. You can pre-order assorted dozen paczki boxes from Sister Pie until 4 pm today.|
Gentle readers, it's almost Fat Tuesday and that can only mean one thing: time to gorge ourselves on paczki. Here are some places to get them:
If you're heading out to Detroit, you can always take the classic route and go to the New Martha Washington Bakery in Hamtramck. If you're looking to try some cutting edge paczki innovations, Sister Pie will be selling chocolate hazelnut rye and the above cranberry-lemon poppy seed paczki at 4750 Woodward starting at 6 am.
Closer to home, Copernicus European Delicatessen in South Main Market is a good place to go for some of the harder to find traditional flavors like rose hip and prune. Personally, I'm really excited about trying the paczki from Dom Backeries in Ypsilanti. I hear they are super good. If you're looking for an extensive resource on local paczki procurement, make sure you check out the ArborWiki paczki page.
Gentle readers, where are your favorite places to grab paczki? How many do you plan to consume on Paczki Day?
