This business has been making fluffy, homemade cinnamon rolls in original and unique flavors since it opened in 2017. The owner, Rebecca Saunders, created the business after realizing she had a passion for surprising friends and family with her baked goods.

Their original, traditional cinnamon bun features just the right amount of delicious icing over the buttery, soft roll of dough.

Sinful Bakery

There’s nothing sinful about the delicious treats you’ll find at this bakery, except for the obscene amount of flavor!

This bakery makes vegan pastries in Houston, but don’t let that fool you into thinking it doesn’t produce some of the most mouth-watering treats in the state. So much so that customers often ask if what they’re eating really is vegan.

All pastries are made from scratch and with all-natural, mostly organic ingredients. This bakery has a wide menu of delicious things to try, but their cinnamon rolls are especially impressive.

These rolls come in jumbo size, which means you’ll likely get to save more for later! They are made in-house and even come in a convenient plastic box so you can easily carry them on the go.

Sinful bakery knows how to make a good thing last because they also offer a Cinnamon Roll Latte on their menu. This latte is infused with cinnamon and their cinnamon roll icing, so it’s perfect for those who love that homemade icing flavor.

We were blown away by the Cinnamon Rolls options at Cinnaholic. If the name sounds familiar, they were recently on The Shark Tank.

So, what is Cinnaholic? Think Crumbl for Cookies..but for Cinnamon Rolls.

Again, we were BLOWN AWAY!

This is a bakery for those who love their cinnamon rolls bold, brave, and out of the ordinary. Most rolls come topped with icing and other treats like berries, sauce, or pie crumbles.

This bakery also bakes other kinds of treats, but their menu is mostly cinnamon rolls, and you can choose between seasonal and signature rolls.

Signature rolls range from the traditional “Old Skool Roll” to flavors like the Cookie Monster Roll, which comes topped with homemade cookie dough, chocolate chips, and chocolate sauce.

The Blueberry Pie Roll features homemade pie crumble and fresh blueberries, while the Raspberry Dream Roll comes with chocolate frosting, fresh raspberries, and almonds.

You can also build your cinnamon roll! Choose your own frosting and toppings to create your idea of the perfect roll. Our suggestion? Go with the Baker’s Box! Trust us, Houston. You won’t be disappointed!

And if you’re traveling to Houston in the near future, put Cinnaholic at the top of your list! It’s fun for the whole family.

Don’t let the name distract you. Koala Kolache makes incredible cinnamon rolls. Yes, they make Kolaches but this article is all about their incredible cinnamon rolls.

It’s nice to have different variations of cinnamon rolls to choose from, but sometimes you just want to enjoy the traditional taste you know and love.

If you’re a purist when it comes to cinnamon rolls, or you just crave the beloved original version, try the roll at Koala Kolache.

While Kolaches take the center stage at this bakery, their fluffy cinnamon rolls are not to be missed. Our cinnamon roll loving team loved the original cinnamon roll but couldn’t pass up the opportunity to try their Nutella Cinnamon Roll.

Their Nutella cinnamon roll is filled with loaded Nutella, and cinnamon sugar, topped with their famous butter cream cheese frosting.

These spiraled beauties will take up a whole plate and feature plenty of spirals to hold the rich, buttery cinnamon flavors. You’ll love the generous portion of icing that melts over the top of the fresh, warm bun.
