Rolling Pin - new bakery/cafe in Atwater - anyone been?

I drove by again and this time confirmed there is a bakery/cafe place called Rolling Pin (or Pins) on the south side of Glendale Blvd just east from the Cold Stone. Has anyone tried it yet? (I apologize if this place is not new, I just have never noticed it before.)

    If it's the Dutch place, it's been there for decades; someone drove a car through the facade, so they remodeled the front.

      It's the same old place with new signage.

        really REALLY good cinnamon rolls, IMHO. Not gooey slimy ones, they are just really nice, especially when microwaved for 10 secs. I work near this place and their breakfast pastries are always a hit when I bring them in. Basic things, but good. They do a really nice coconut custart danish too.

        I don't know how "dutch" it is, but it's solid.

          Dry, buttery versions of baked classics circa 1960s... like Canter's without the moisture, chocolate cupcakes or black n' whites.

          It's been there forever but is not owned by the same people who labeled it Dutch-American classics.

          The last time I went in it had changed with some Pacific Asian touches. The only thing I saw that looked interesting to me were their coconut pastries which were good and very fresh. But nothing else looked good since I had been drawn by the idea of classic pastries.

          I have avoided it since but perhaps I should check it out again sice the recent changes.
