I have a craving for just about any type of cinnamon roll. Any ideas would be appreciated.

Thank you!

    Flour Bakery in the South End has AMAZING sticky cinnamon buns. I would absolutely recommend them.

      Yes, Flour Bakery! The owner won a throwdown against Bobby Flay on the Food Network for best cinnamon buns! She seems to have quite a following.

        A tad off-topic, but is it true that you have to order Flour's cinnamon rolls in advance, or is it just the case that they sell out that quickly? Can't even remember where I read that.

          Funny about the sticky buns. I tried my first one (and certainly not my last!) on Sunday around 2:00pm in the South End. Very crowded, and there were plenty left. I think they were just out of the oven (nice and warm, unless they microwaved when I wasn't looking). Best sticky bun ever...

        It may be too far to get to, but the Semisweet bakery, open weekends in Newburyport, has wonderful classic, big cinnamon buns

          I like them at Quebrada in Arlington, and actually the S&S deli has them in Inman Square in the mornings too. Now you have me thinking about them. :)

            Bread and Chocolate in Newtonville has deliciois and sinfully gooey pecan sticky rolls. So good and so fattening.

            I hate to say it, but the cafe at Ikea actually makes wonderful cinnamon rolls. They are so tasty, and I love getting them at the counter all heated up. Mmm.

              I stopped in to Panera bread for a quick coffee break and they had a new "pastry". I forget the exact name, but it was a cinnamon roll/pastry with lots of cinnamon and a few nuts with icing on top. What I like about it, in addition to the freshness, was the abundance od cinnamon. It's a twisted shaped pastry(about 3"wide not one of those sticks), and it was really good.
