Where to buy the best cinnamon buns in TO
I am on a quest to find great cinnamon buns. When I lived in Vancouver, there was a cafe that made fabulous oooey gooey, "hand me multiple wet wipes when I am done" type cinnamon buns.
I miss those alot
Any suggestions where to find such a delectable delight in this fine city?
As mentioned, it is the gooey type cinnamon bun I am seeking, not light or dry or crispy.
Another question, somewhat related- what is the difference between a cinnamon bun and a sticky bun?
The cinnamon buns at Epi Bread on Bayview at Millwood are very good. Not as gooey as the ones at Cinnabon, but better quality ingredients. They have varieties with raisins or pecans. I haven't had them for a while now, but they're baked together in a tray and are separated when you buy them.
When it was open, Lox, Stock, and Bagel in Hazelton Lanes had the best sticky ooey gooey cinnamon buns. But alas, they are gone.A close second are the buns Pusitari's carries on Thurs. and Fri. I am not sure where they are from, though; Pusitari's does not bake anything in-house. Anyone know?
Are you by chance talking about Grounds for Coffee? I used to live in Vancouver, too, and I am homesick for them. The great thing about them was that they don't add egg, which is perfect because I am allergic to eggs.
When people post their recommendations, I would love it if they could mention as an added bonus (only if they know, of course) if the cinnamon buns contain eggs...thanks!
For months and months, I was completely obsessed with the chelsea buns at All the Best Fine Foods. They aren't oozy like Cinnabon (no white icing) but they do have a good stickiness that I swear has a citrusy orange flavour with pecans and cranberries mixed in. (So they aren't light or dry or crispy but they weren't really oozy either.)
