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.

Nothing spectacular. Their cinnamon rolls and their coffee were very average! I'd spend my money somewhere else along the same street which is full of food and beverage places.

We probably tried most of the gluten free desserts while we were in Monterey and they were all delicious!! We were very happy to find this bakery, which had such a big selection for us,

We stopped here after dinner and a stroll down Cannery Row. We were not in the mood for ice cream, but wanted a little something sweet after dinner. I got the apple maple cinnamon roll and my daughter got the traditional frosted roll. Both were fantastic! So fresh and delicious ... go get some, you will not be disappointed!

Decided to stop here for apple pie a la mode and the pie was amazing. The service from the young people behind the counter was very nice.

They look good, but don't be fooled. I don't think they even cook the cinnamon rolls there. Stale and disappointing.
