City Pages' Description

All children should be regularly brought to this Uptown spot, for five good reasons. First, all children should see how difficult it is to flatten yeast dough into a rectangle a yard long and then roll it up like a sweet, cinnamon-filled carpet. Second, they should see how easy it is to slice the long roll into individual portions. Third, they should see how warm and cute they are coming out of the oven. Fourth, they should smell, and memorize forever, the intoxicating perfume of sweet scratch baking. Fifth, and perhaps most important, children provide exceptionally good cover, and they rarely can finish one of the gigantic rolls by themselves.

Tips from foursquare

    Voted by City Pages in 2010 as having the Best Sweet Rolls . The cinnamon buns are as big as your head and come plain, dripping in caramel goodness, or slathered with cream cheese frosting.

    Wow puppy dog tails!

  • John R. on 03/08/10

    Mmmmmmmmm... Puppy dog tails fresh from the oven with extra frosting!!!

  • Rachel F. on 07/22/11

    Must try the puppy dog tails. They're $1 cinnamon twists. And don't forget to stop by the tub of frosting and add as much as you want!
