J Dilla's Uncle is Opening a Donut Shop in Harmonie Park

New, 28 comments

While the Milner Hotel continues its classy condo conversion as The Ashley, something entirely different is stirring down at street level. In a tiny storefront at the tip of the flatiron, an unlikely combination of hip-hop and baked goods has resulted in Dilla's Delights, a donut shop inspired by the memory of Detroit producer and donut enthusiast J Dilla. Expected to open sometime this fall, the business is the work of Dilla's Uncle, Herman Hayes. Let's hope the shop lasts long enough to see Ashley residents move in once construction finishes up next summer.
