Cinn City cinnamon rolls are made on premises daily

Downtown Lynchburg, Virginia has a new bakery.  And is it ever good!  Located at 1344 Main Street this bakery is a unique addition to downtown’s delicious dining options.  Owned and operated by Alex Richardson it serves breakfast treats, while R*A Bistro does not.  Alex has been a supporter of downtown and opened R*A Bistro before many could see downtown’s potential.

His new endeavor features over-the-top cinnamon bun and beignet creations that will have you returning again and again.  Afterall, there are so many different home-made frostings, almost 30 toppings and 12 sauces you’ll need to return just to try them all.  And who doesn’t enjoy customizing their own cinnamon treats?  In addition to the sweet treats there is a line of coffee and espresso products that complement the cinnamon buns or beignets.

The dough is mixed, risen, rolled and baked, then served fresh and hot from the oven.  You top it with your choice of chef-crafted, infused frostings and a huge assortment of fresh fruits, crumbles, candies, cookies and more.  You also choose one frosting, one frosting and two toppings plus one drizzle or really make it your own with your frosting choice.

There are dozens of toppings you can add.

The beignets are hand-cut, sugar dusted doughnut delights that match perfectly with the many house-made fruit toppings, chocolate sauces, caramels and frostings made for dipping.  You can buy them by the piece or by the basket.  Sometimes there are just too many choices.

Toppings include the old standbys: various nuts, chocolate chips, marshmallows and caramel chips.  Frostings include cream cheese, maple, hazelnut and vanilla.  Drizzles and sauces run the gamut between vanilla cream, chocolate, raspberry or strawberry to lemon zest, cinnamon or honey.

If you’re hungry at lunchtime for a savory, scratch-made dough roll you are now in luck.  Savory buns are filled with fresh garlic, olive oil and herbs.  Then you can add Boursin cream cheese, gourmet sauces, sautéed veggies or a variety of meats.

In addition to a nice selection of coffees and espressos you can choose café au lait, hot chocolate or a signature hot drink.  Does a s’more, choc-raspberry, minty Irishman or banana foster drink sound appealing?  Or, try a float, smoothie or milk shake.

Open Sunday through Thursday between 7:00 until 7:00 and Friday and Saturday between 7:00 until 9:00.  If you’d like further information visit their website www.cinncity.com or call 434.219.3957.

My hint to you is, if you don’t want to get up early to prepare and bake your own cinnamon rolls on Christmas morning, visit Cinn City the day before to select some delicious breakfast treats.  And consider the same for New Year’s morning.  They have such a selection of goodies that you will be bale to choose from your favorites or be adventurous and choose something different.  You will be glad you did!
