This Whistler fixture’s recent expansion brings their love of all things homemade to Vancouver. The cinnamon cream bun consistently gets rave reviews and they can be found at the Nat Bailey Winter Farmer’s Market as well as their storefront locations.


Solly’s might be best known for their authentic and addictive bagels, but breakaway from the usual and sample one of their toothsome cinnamon buns smothered in delectable caramel sauce. Add cream cheese frosting for extra indulgence.

Swiss Bakery

The home of the “Frissant”, a devious combination of croissant and fritter, but their cinnamon buns are equally tempting. Sample the European style cinnamon roll or the traditional cinnamon bun and pick up a loaf of their artisan bread to take home.
