I expected something a bit better given all the hype. the cinnamon rolls were fine - not fabulous. the roll needed lots more cinnamon to be really good. the dough was not as tender as I expected. Still its a fine cinnamon roll experience is that is what you are looking for.

A crowd pleaser. These large slightly expensive but sharable rolls are delicious. We often buy them for work or any brunch. My favorite are the ones with pecans.

We split a cinnamon roll with icing and it was good, Not great, but good. The place was not very clean and it was hard to find a table that was wiped clean. Also there were a lot of flies because they keep their door open. So you are probably better off getting them to go.

Excellent cinnamon rolls even in the middle of the afternoon. Was surprised they were fresh baked at 2 in the afternoon. Delicious!

I read a lot about this place on Trip Advisor so I had to check it out. The place itself is old. The staff were just trying to get through the line (you just order up at the register) no niceties or even eye contact. I got the cream cheese icing roll and it was too sweet for me. I... More

Live in the area and it's hard not to stop here when in town. The smell invades the north part of the beach and it's just so easy to walk in and down one of these cinnamon delights. They're sticky and messy and gooey and so good. People will line up in the morning healthy and unhealthy alike.

We were here in June and will be back for Labor Day. I'm not sure why this place is ranked with restaurants, but they do have THE BEST cinnamon rolls we've ever had! Good thing we don't live close! Service was okay and it's not much to look at, but then, you're going for cinnamon rolls, not dinner. Small, convenient... More

The pecan rolls were so delicious! The people were nice. There is a line, but the wait is not bad! The day old stuff was not only cheaper, but also tasty! Really great!
