Avoid this place. Cinnamon rolls were stale and clearly not baked fresh on site. The prices were ridiculous, $6 for a stale cinnamon roll. They also sold mini cinnamon rolls for $3.25/piece which were the same ones you buy at Costco for $10/24 pack. Normal sized cookies were $3 when other bakeries sell huge cookies for $2. Service was terrible,... More

I tried the low cal splenda rolls and frosting and they were GREAT! Butter always makes any pastry better. There is also a large variety of cookies and brownies-all homemade. Not the most inexpensive place, but very good for sinful excess!!

Stopped in before the Aquarium at 9:30 am expecting fresh baked cinnamon rolls. We got day old dry rolls. I've had better out of the can from Pillsbury.

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
