Cayucos gas station cinnamon rolls: any good news?

  • 3

I make it to the central coast just once or twice a year, and I noticed a 2011 thread reporting that the once -awesome cinnamon rolls & other baked goods at the Cayucos gas station are no longer worth stopping for. Since it's been awhile, I thought I'd see if anyone has more recent feedback. Thanks for any help!

  1. Not sure what has happened, but quality is down. Better baked goods are at the Old Cayucos Bakery behind Hoppe's. They do the baking for Hoppe's Restaurant.

        At the OCB, not sure the baker is still there--I think I heard he'd moved over to Templeton. But it was very good last winter when I stopped. They close by about 3 or 4. Fine artisan breads and sturdy cookies. Worth checking out, and let us know.

        Brown Butter Cookie Co. is up the street, sorta pricey and small, and not eye-rolling to me. Area Cyclists like the pastries and coffees at Kelly's across the street, and the Dogs in Morro Bay on Main St downtown by Coalesce Bookstore.
