ooey gooey goodness

Yesterday, Roger and I treated ourselves to some ooey gooey cinnamon buns from Solly's, a local Jewish family bakery and deli here in Vancouver. So don't go thinking I ate both of these in the picture (although I easily could have)... we did share the pair. Solly's cinnamon buns are hands down my fave... lots of layers of sticky, sugary, caramelized layers.... mmmmmm... I think I just drooled writing that. They also have an awesome chocolate babka on thier menu too... but I will share that in a future post.... don't want to put everyone in diabetic shock all in one post.

oooh you!!! grr...I so miss Solly's! I worked right across the street and went over for my lunch breaks almost every day. Good memories but ever so envious here! ;)

Those look AMAZING!! I haven't found a local bakery in my area where you can buy things like that. I have to settle for the grocery store baked goods, which are nothing compared to what you can get at specialty bakeries.

Oooh those look delicious! And I had pancakes this morning -- I'm going into sugar shock just looking at them!

Yesterday, as I was perusing blogs, my 4 year old granddaughter spotted your squirrel avatar and got all excited and had to "read" your post!! (should have commented then, but she doesn't allow me the time!!)

DK said...

Oooh those look good. I haven't had a good cinnamon bun in a loooong time. Small bakeries do it right!

Mamma Pie said...

Mmmmm! I love cinnamon. I've never had those but here Panera does a pretty good cinnamon bagel- I used to enjoy it rather *frequently* when I was pregnant.
Simple pleasures!

Tess said...

I think I just gained 5 pounds looking at these. I love when they are perfectly swirled and you can unravel them end to end!

The last time I had Solly's cinnamon buns I was pregnant with the Peanut and because I had gestational diabetes was only aloud 1/4 bun :(

Now that you've reminded me I see a trip to Solly's in the future
