ok cinnamon buns

This is a small, cute store on cannery row. three of us got the frosted cinnamon buns with pecans, They were ok, but did not seem super fresh. We were there about 3:30 in the afternoon. Cinnabon is better.

Walking down the street, we were in need of something for breakfast. The sticky buns looked great so we stopped in and tried the one with the apples and per the recommendation of the cashier had them warm it up. Of course we paired it with cold milk! It was very good (not quite cinnabon), but worth giving it a... More

The cinnamon rolls smell delicious and will reel you in. They are pretty dry even when the icing is added. i would recommend craving another sweet so the money will be worth the calories.

Loved the cinnamon rolls and food we bought here. Not cheap, but it was really good! It added to our pleasant time in Monterey.

Wanted something sweet after lunch. Yes, you pay a hefty price for a cinnamon roll, and cookies, that's what you're there for. I have had better. It did stop my sugar craving.

We bought a 4 pack of plain or I guess what you'd call original, iced Cinnamon Rolls (as the other types had extremely thick, OTT toppings) and were asked if we wanted them heated up. I probably should've said no as by the time we had only walked a short distance back to our hotel, they were like rocks. Such... More

I had a cinnamon roll instead of dinner on my honeymoonm because these rolls were monster sized! And absolutely delicious. I am glad I dont live closer, because I would be visiting every week to get a taste of these great rolls! Lots of varieties to choose from too. Tiny place, so plan to eat it to go!

These were the best cinnamon rolls I have tasted. I went back and bought four more for our picnic the following day. There was a good variety of complimentary flavours to choose from and all tasty.
