Detroit is the kind of place where you definitely want to save room for dessert. Here are some of our favorite bakeries in metro Detroit when you want to spoil yourself or bring something sweet to your next gathering.


1. Avalon International Breads

With menu items like Second Avenue Scallion Dill bread, Leelanau Cherry Walnut bread, sea salt chocolate chunk cookies and Seriously Sticky Buns, you may want to make multiple trips to Avalon International Breads.

2. Astoria Pastry Shop

Possibly one of the most popular in Detroit, Astoria Pastry Shop is a must for a night out in Greektown. Try one of the honey pastries for an authentic experience.

3. Pretty much anywhere in Eastern Market

It doesn’t get much better than buying a fresh, handmade treat from one of many vendors at the market, or even one of the permanent storefronts, like Milano Bakery. A muffin with a cup of coffee make a great breakfast when you’re strolling around pickup out produce on the weekend.

4. Sister Pie

This hip little bakery always has something unique on the menu. Sister Pie is known for, you guessed it, pie, but have plenty of scones, cookies and even tasty salads in the display case. For some real fun, sign up for one of their pie-making classes (if they doesn’t sell out before you get a chance – the classes are incredibly popular).

5. Bon Bon Bon

If you’re looking for a great hostess gift or dessert for your next party, the handcrafted chocolates from Bon Bon Bon make a beautiful presentation. Your friends will thank you “” assuming you don’t devour them yourself first.
