Donut Wars: Dom's vs. Dimo's

There has been a raging debate this weekend on r/AnnArbor: who has the best donuts in the Ypsi-Arbor area, Dom's or Dimo's?

Dom Bakeries (often refereed to as Dom's), located at 1305 Washtenaw in Ypsilanti, is a stalwart of the County's East Side. Dom's is open 24/7 and known for their apple fritters.

Dimo's Deli and Donuts, located at 2030 W. Stadium, offers a breakfast menu and deli sandwiches in addition to donuts. They are known for their charming mixture of gruffness and sass.

On reddit the debate can be distilled as follows: people in Ypsilanti prefer Dom's donuts because they are too drunk to drive to Ann Arbor and get donuts from Dimo's; people in Ann Arbor prefer Dimo's because they are too drunk to drive to Ypsilanti and get donuts from Dom's. I have to admit I am a bit biased, I like Dom's a lot. EJ and I live less than a mile from Dom's and at night, when the wind is just right, you can smell the faint sent of apple fritters on the breeze. I'm a sucker for Dom's apple fritters. Also, while I've been to Dimo's, I've never had their donuts.

Gentle readers, what do you think about the great Dom's/Dimo's debate? This matter is especially pressing considering Paczki day is this Tuesday.


  1. Dimo's and Dom's are both pretty far from South Dakota, even when I'm sober.

    I enjoy Gary's Donuts, two blocks north of the Daily Leader's newsroom.

  2. I love Dom's. Especially the apple fritters. And I'll be getting paczki there tomorrow!

    Never been to Dimo's, though.
