Cinnaholic: Vegan Bakeries Dedicated to Gourmet Cinnamon Rolls


It’s easy to see why Cinnaholic has a cult following. This is an all vegan bakery dedicated 100% to custom, gourmet cinnamon rolls. Of course they have an “Old Skool Roll” with vanilla frosting, but you can upgrade for a quarter to one of their flavored frosting, of which there are so, so many – blueberry, root beer, pina colada, butter pecan, chocolate, pumpkin spice, peanut butter, cream cheese, and the list goes on.

For another 50 cents you can pick from their plethora of toppings. You thought the frosting was the topping? Oh no. Top that with cookie dough, pie crumble, berries, marshmallows, chocolate chips, pecans and more. The basic “Old Skool” starts at just under $5, but they also have a much less expensive Baby Bun option if you want to trial before diving into a big one or if you would like to sample a few frosting options.

Cinnaholic in Berkeley only makes vegan cinnamon buns, but boy do they make a lot of them and in so many flavor variations!

Cinnaholic also dedicates Mondays to online orders. They bake away and ship via priority mail to customers across the U.S. They aren’t cheap this way, after shipping Cinnaholic cinnamon buns come out to $6 a piece (and you order by the dozen). But they are wrapped fresh, come with frosting on the side, and you get to choose from a decent selection of around 10 frosting flavors (including Irish cream, butterscotch, cream cheese, butter pecan, vanilla, and coffee). It’s a once in a blue moon indulgence for curious dairy-free or vegan cinnamon bun lovers who can’t make it to the Bay Area.

Please note that Cinnaholic cinnamon buns are 100% vegan, dairy-free and egg-free. However, in terms of top allergens, they do contain soy and wheat. The buns themselves are made without nuts, but as you can see below, nut toppings are definitely present in the bake shop!

Where to Find Cinnaholic

Their original location is still located at 2132 Oxford Street, Berkeley, CA. However, they now sell online (seasonally) and have franchised their operations! At last check, Cinnaholic had additional locations in Atlanta, Las Vegas, San Diego, Southlake (TX), Toronto, ON and several locations were opening. See their website, below, for current locations, hours, and menus.

  1. Hi Alisa

    I am confused. You state that they do ship and dedicate Mondays to online orders, shipping via priority mail. Two paragraphs later you state they ship (seasonally).

    I looked for shipping at each store site and found nothing. I checked the Frequently Asked Questions and this is what it stated:

    “Do you offer shipping for your products?
    Currently, we do not offer shipping at this time as we are focused on expanding our storefronts across the U.S. Check our website, which we regularly update, for a location near you!”

    Can you please clarify?

    Thank you!


    • Hi Julie, yes, when I looked at their site just a week ago they had shipping, and they were shipping at that time (Mondays) but it said they ship “seasonally”. I’m guessing it is out of season now! Very bizarre. I literally just updated this.
