We came here for the gluten free cinnamon rolls. They were good, especially the frosting. I've had better from bakeries that didn't specialize in cinnamon rolls though. They were tiny. At $6 a pop I expected more.

After our Monterey Free Walking Tour we stopped to sit inside and have a sweet treat - a cinnamon roll. Was very good. Good location on Cannery Row. Recommend.

Food was tasty but very overpriced, atmosphere almost none existent and no reason to return, handy as a short top up, at cost!

We stopped here to purchase a quick bite to eat between lunch and dinner. Although there were three workers behind the counter, none of them greeted us. The cookies were pricey at $3.95 each. The pretzel was microwaved and very plain. We won't be returning anytime soon.

The cinnamon aroma drifting out onto the street draws you into this little shop. Service was ok, bit slow but get the impression staff is mostly young kids on school break doing their best. Cinnamon rolls are heated in microwave. They were OK.

We wandered into this shop while we were exploring Cannery Row. I guess when you go into a cinnamon roll shop, you should stick to cinnamon rolls. My husband ordered a jalapeño cheese pretzel. The young lady assisting us popped it in microwave, but not for long enough. As he began eating, he discovered it was still cold in the... More

My husband was dying to try the cinnamon roll because it had to many great ads everywhere. Unfortunately, it was just okay at best. He said he must be spoiled by the Cinnabon cinnamon rolls because this one could not compare. Maybe some of their other items are better, but you can skip the cinnamon roll...

We were so excited to find a bakery with gluten free items...and they did not disappoint. Both the cinnamon roll and the M&M cookie were terrific! I'm sure regular items are great, too...but with a child with a recent Celiac diagnosis, this little bakery was a true find!

Grab a delicious cinnamon roll and you're in great shape. The hot chocolate was so watered down/tasteless I couldn't finish it.
