Topic Wiki

This Wiki is far from complete so please add to it!

The main Orthodox Community is located in Oak Park/Southfield.
There are also communities in the Young Israel of Southfield neighborhood and West Bloomfield/Farmington Hills.
Getting there:
Best option: 7.5k avios from LGA/PHL
10k UA from EWR
Or DL 12.5k, sometimes 7.5k
Often there are cheap paid fares on Frontier from Trenton(TTN)
Or ACY on spirit
It's 10 hours drive from NYC & 9+ from Lakewood.
If renting a oneway from hertz, drop at centerline, MI.

Where to stay:
People are very hospitable!
There are no hotels within walking distance to the main Oak Park/Southfield community, though the Holiday Inn Express in Farmington Hills is a 20-25 minute walk from two shuls.
The Westin in Southfield isn't far by car.
The airport Sheraton is now a Cat 1.

Where to eat:

Prime10 is a centrally located steakhouse, and probably the best kosher Fleishigs in Detroit.
They have a decent lunch special. Expect to pay $35 plus per person.

Kravings is a very solid, centrally located burger/sandwich/sushi/shabbos takeout place.
They are open Thursday nights until 1ish with Cholent.
Meals start at around $10.

Sara's in the oak park JCC, very solid deli the oak park JCC is (permanently) closed, and so is Sara's.

Dave's is currently closed.

Jerusalem Pizza has plenty of specialty pizzas, Kishka, BBQ, Sephardic and Mexican are some of the more popular ones, but even the plain pizza is incredible.
Their regular pies are thick and smallish.
They also offer a "New York style" pie, but it is not recommended, as they specialize in their own style of pizza and not NY Style pizza, so why would you get the same stuff that you could get on the east coast?!
They have plenty of calzones. Bread sticks/cheese sticks are a must.
Order by phone if you're in a rush as they usually take 15mins to get you your pizza.
They also have a branch in the West Bloomfield JCC.

Grove Kosher Supermarket (beautifully redone - previously One stop) has plenty of Kosher products, as well as Fleishig takeout, Sushi, and Pizza.
Spread's Café is a breakfast / bakery next to the Grove. They have eggs, bagels, ice cream, pastries, salads, coffee, etc.
Wok in Cari Out is Chinese takeout, also next to the Grove.
Soul Cafe in West Bloomfield is a nice dairy place a bit more upscale then the rest (only open for breakfast and lunch)
Gold N Greens is in the Wayne County Cafeteria. They are only open when college is in session.
They are not Cholov Yisroel. It costs about $8 for all you can eat: pizza, bread sticks, soy stuff, salads, desserts, soft ice cream, sodas, chocolate milk, OJ... Kids 5& under are free. 6-12 is $4.

Zeman's bakery is centrally located and is very solid.
Dunkin Donuts/baskin Robbins is kosher and also centrally located. (Not CY/PY)

There are also two Kosher bakeries in the West Bloomfield/Farmington Hills area, Bake Station and Dakota Bread.

A place just opened up right on the community by Paul Kohens A'H son. Paul was a great and successful career in Detroit. New place is called Cravings. New zemans bakery. Pricey but definitely worth it by a mile!

Prime 10 is a fancier nice sit down place. Kravings is an upscale deli (and sushi) place that has tables. Saras is in the JCC and is diner type.

I don't know if I'd go that far. It is a bit nicer. Prime 10 is still the nicest. And open late.
