KeithKNOWS, Been There, Ate There! Cinnaholic Edgewood Bakery, 1230 Caroline St NE, Ste B-110, Atlanta 30307 http://www.cinnaholic.com/ Okay the wait is over, finally made it to “Cinnaholic” vegan cinnamon bun, I meant “rolls”, well, kinda sorta (LOL) It’s a quaint space in the Edgewood Shopping Center off of Moreland Avenue. Their products are dairy & lactose, egg, and cholesterol free. The rolls are displayed elegantly, so you can see exactly what you want to devour. I had the Chocoberry cinnamon roll, a delicious glazed topped off with chocolate bites and fresh fruit. Cinnaholic has a variety of flavors such as Gingersnap, Oreo cookies, Strawberry Jam, Macadamia Nut, Coconut, and many more. You can have your cinnamon roll with Octane Coffee, teas, they also serve cookies and brownies. I’m excited to go again and try another flavor, won’t you join me, on the sidewalk café, of course.
