“Wonderful Urban European town!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 1, 2013

Hamtramck, MI is a city that is surrounded by Detroit on all sides. It is a quaint little village of many immigrants that are happy to see you and quick to help you find your way. The town is filled with traditional Polish restaurants and many other ethnic stores. The beautiful little townhouses are truly just that, town houses. Some have beautiful gardens while others sit directly on the street. A truly "old world" experience that you must see to appreciate. Don't miss the bakeries and meat markets! Also, don't miss the best food in the area at:
"The Polish VIllage Cafe" at 2990 Yemans St, Hamtramck · (313) 874-5726. or
"New Palace Bakery" 9833 Joseph Campau St Detroit, MI 48212 (313) 875-1334 or
"Srodek" Meat Market 9601 Joseph Campau St, Hamtramck · (313) 871-8080
These places are the absolute best! I don't live in Michigan, I'm a Southerner, and I don't work for or have any family or friends who work at these places or even live in Hamtramck! I just
L-O-V-E the place! Very safe during the daytime, I'v never been at night. Enjoy!!!
