Good Eats: Cinnamon Roll Place

It’s warm, chewy, sweet and sticky! I am talking about a fresh from the oven cinnamon roll from that Cinnamon Roll Place in Kihei. That’s right, the name of the cafe is appropriate, clever and memorable.

The generously monstrous cinnamon rolls come with your choice of toppings, additional icing and start at around $4 for one massive cinnamon explosion that is the size of a large grapefruit. Additional toppings include macadamia nuts, pecans, almonds, raisins and cream cheese frosting for 75-cents to $1 more. I ordered the regular cinnamon roll topped with macadamia nuts and cream cheese frosting.

The Cinnamon Roll Place surprisingly serves more than just rolls, they have scones, sandwiches and coffee too.

It was comforting, delightfully sweet, crunchy from the roast nuts and unfortunately the frosting had no flavor of cream cheese whatsoever. The icing seemed more like confectioners’ sugar with a touch of sweetened condensed milk. I am not knocking them for the frosting because overall it’s a solid cinnamon roll. Try it before adding the icing as it could get too sugary and overwhelm the wholesome cinnamon essence.

They have a continuous promotion if you purchase 5 cinnamon rolls you get one free. I am anxious to one day try other items besides the rolls, they have bread pudding, banana bread, scones, muffins, cookies and special breakfast bagel sandwiches – which look outstanding. But I thought it would be crazy to go to the Cinnamon Roll Place and order a sandwich and not a cinnamon roll.
