Cinnamon Rolls- Stat

Where in Los Angeles do I get a cinnamon roll that is doughy and gooey in the middle, relies more on cinnamon than icing, and is served with a decent cup of coffee? I also want to be able to eat it there.

      It's Maison du Pain, and the cinnamon rolls are truly amazing. By far the best in L.A.

          Omg they're to 'die for'.
          I wouldn't waste my calories or my time with any other.

      1. i love the cinnamon rolls at Thee's bakery on third and fairfax. it's in the booth where they sell their funnel cakes and apple dumplings, not their main bakery. you can get a great cup of coffee at Bob's donuts there too.

        1. if the valley's an option, try K's Donut Emporium at Ventura and Beverly Glen (southeast corner mall)

            I don't know if it's the best ever, but I like K's cinnamon roll with walnuts.

            1. Dolores has gigantic and delicious cinnamon rolls - 11407 Santa Monica Blvd. Haven't been in awhile. Hope it's still there.

                Dolores is still there and still has their "We Never Close" sign up. I feel that their cinnamon rolls are a good example of quantity over quality - they are huge, but too treacly sweet. But maybe that is just my pet peeve?

                  Dolores does not have good cinnamon rolls. Simultaneously dry and overly sugary without rich flavor. No, no, no.
