There are fewer scents more distinct than the waft of sweet, warm, and deliciously sticky cinnamon buns. Rosen’s mission is to serve the traditional buns all day long, so that everyone has the chance to indulge in the glazed cinnamon goodness.
Amy Rosen had the idea to establish a bakery that was solely dedicated to creating the perfect bun, and with that Rosen’s Cinnamon Buns was born. Located in Toronto’s own Little Italy, Rosen’s is dedicated to serving the cinnamon goodie all day long. Rosen drew inspiration from her own love for the cinnamon treat; it was a timeless dessert that crossed genders and generations, but for some reason it hadn’t received the attention it deserved. Rosen sought to correct this, and made it her mission to create a recipe that would keep people dreaming about the gooey treat long after tasting it.
The shop itself is everything you’d want from a bakery—it’s warm, cozy, and clean. The black and white mosaic floor, statement piece of artwork featuring a woman with cinnamon buns on her head, and spotless white walls make Rosen’s the perfect spot for Instagram. Thanks to the open concept of the bakery, customers are able to witness the baking process start to finish: starting from rolling and kneading the dough, to taking the buns out of the oven, to drizzling the end product with warm glaze.
Rosen, who is a food writer and cookbook author, wanted to keep her recipe for the perfect cinnamon bun simple. Her menu has two basic (but delicious) items: all natural cinnamon buns, and cinnamon bread pudding, which is made from leftovers so as to ensure there is zero waste. The brioche buns are baked to perfection—both gooey and flakey, with a glazed top that compliments the entire dessert. Rosen also uses quality ingredients, such as organic milk and cream, free run eggs, and unbleached flour to make sure that the taste of her cinnamon buns are consistently on point. The buns can also be paired with the best drip coffee in town or organic local tea.
Rosen’s mission to spread cinnamon bun love is a worthy one—not to mention delicious. Order from Rosen’s Cinnamon Buns today!
