Capitol Park Strolling Brunch Tours – 2019 and 2020

We’ve expanded our popular food tours to Capitol Park!

Join us as we stroll and eat our way through this dynamic area of downtown Detroit, rich with history, redevelopment, and excitement.

Delish Detroit invites you to explore Capitol Park with us on foot while enjoying a progressive brunch!

Capitol Park is the triangular area of downtown Detroit loosely bound by Woodward Avenue, State Street, Washington Boulevard, and Grand River.

You will experience the revitalization of this historic part of downtown Detroit firsthand as your guide shares fun facts and stories about the history of Michigan’s first Capitol; the underground railroad; architectural gems; and new housing, retail and street art murals. Along the way, we will pop into some unique places, and visit 4 or 5 new eateries to enjoy specialty eats, which may include egg sandwiches, cheeses, biscuits, brunch pizza, veggies, fruit, noodles, sweets and more – enough food for brunch!

 

Tours run rain or shine! Dress for the weather!

Enjoy eating locally produced pizza, popcorn, pickles and pastries; specialty sausages and cheeses; authentic spinach pies and spreads, seasonal nibbles & treats, and more! We’ll get to know local growers and vendors, and taste their grown- and made-in-Michigan foods. We’ll be exploring the stunning art murals in the Market along our way, many of which were created during the last four Mural Festivals, and we will also visit an art gallery, jazz club and/or a letterpress shop. Dress for the weather; we will be inside several shops and in the market sheds on our tour, as well as walking outdoors.¬†Tours run rain, snow or shine!
