Popping in to a few small businesses on Detroit’s east side

‘Tis the season for cheery capitalism! As November slides into the frantic flurry of holiday shoppers racing against the Christmas/Kwanzaa/Hanukkah clock, consider stepping away from big-name corporations and instead purchasing from small businesses.

On Monday The Neighborhoods team split up and travelled to Detroit’s east, west, and southwest sides to visit some small local businesses. Here’s a few places I saw on the east side:

Maison’s Fine Foods Diner


The hole story of Holy Moly, Eight Mile’s curious new doughnut shop

When you think Detroit and doughnuts, Elias Donuts, Dutch Girl and maybe a J Dilla album come top of mind. Holy Moly Donut Shop on Eight Mile Road near the I-75 exchange is pitching itself to land among those household names.

Only a month after opening up, owner Victor Attisha, says the small shop has already become somewhat of a regional destination. “We get people from Jackson, Port Huron, Cincinnati and Cleveland,” he said. “People are coming from everywhere to try our donuts.”
