It’s easy to see why Cinnaholic has a cult following. This is an all vegan bakery dedicated to custom, gourmet cinnamon rolls. They serve regular-size cinnamon rolls, baby buns, frosting shots, and several other bakery items. Most of their shops have a small seating area, but they primarily churn out treats to go.
Cinnaholic Lets You Build Your Own Vegan Cinnamon Roll
Cinnamon roll orders start with their “Old Skool Roll,” which comes with vanilla frosting. But you can upgrade to one of their flavored frosting, of which there are 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 again with their plethora of toppings. You thought the frosting was the topping? Oh no. Have them sprinkle on cookie dough, pie crumble, berries, marshmallows, chocolate chips, pecans and more.
Cinnaholic Cinnamon Bun Ingredients and Top Allergens
They run a strictly vegan facility, so everything on the premises is made without dairy and eggs. Their buns and frosting are also nut-free, but they do have nuts present for topping. And they do contain wheat and soy. At last check, Cinnaholic didn’t have a gluten-free option. Below are the ingredients for their plain cinnamon roll and frosting base.

Select Cinnaholic locations also have soft serve vegan ice cream available. Some have a creamy vanilla, some have Dole Whip, and some have both!

Where to Find Cinnaholic
Cinnaholic used to take online orders and ship to customers throughout the U.S. Unfortunately, they discontinued that service. But they are instead focusing on opening more locations in both the U.S. and Canada. At last count, they had roughly 50 shops across both countries. See their website below for addresses, hours, and contact information.

Fun to try
There was a Cinnaholic nearby when we visited my dad, so I decided to try it out. I bought enough for three of us. The rolls are modestly sized (relatively speaking), which I didn’t mind, but they are a bit pricey. We thought they were good, but not as good as homemade. But they were still fun to try and I would recommend.
