Updated 2018! 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. Just some of the frosting options include amaretto, cake batter, chocolate, cream cheese, marshmallow, maple, raspberry, and peanut butter. They also have seasonal options, like pumpkin spice and apple cider in fall.
And you can upgrade your cinnamon roll with 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.
If you aren’t ready for the commitment of a Cinnaholic full-size cinnamon roll, then you can order Baby Buns. These mini cinnamon rolls, or their frosting shots, are a great way to try out different flavors.
They also offer Cinnacakes, which are cinnamon rolls baked together, and then frosted and decorated as one. And if you aren’t in a cinnamon mood, you can enjoy their brownies, cookies, or muffins. And they do serve organic, fair trade coffee to go with your pastry.
Select Cinnaholic locations also have soft serve vegan ice cream available. Some have a creamy vanilla, some have Dole Whip, and some have both!
Cinnaholic used to take online orders and ship to customers throughout the U.S. Unfortunately, they discontinued this service. But they are instead focusing on opening more locations in both the U.S. and Canada!
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 above, 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 have franchised their operations!
