Cinnaholic, a vegan cinnamon roll shop, will open at 927 S Howard Avenue. After numerous teasers, the bakery is now open. This bakery may have the sweetest scent of any shop we’ve visited in the last twelve months.
Cinnaholic specializes in custom gourmet cinnamon rolls and homemade cookie dough, brownies, and cookies. They offer a unique experience with over 40 different frostings and toppings, so the cinnamon roll flavor possibilities are endless. Cinnaholic also serves up giant, customizable cinnacakes for those with a major sweet tooth.
As with all Cinnaholic stores, Cinnaholic – Tampa is locally owned and operated. Owners Juliana and Thiago Mendes are originally from Brazil and met while attending business school together, according to a press release.
“After trying the cinnamon rolls, we knew that we wanted to have a Cinnaholic store to call ours,” said Juliana Mendes. “This is the first Cinnaholic in the Tampa area, and we’re extremely excited to bring this incredible, family-friendly vegan bakery to the area residents.”
When you visit you can craft your own Cinnaholic experience. Select from over 20 unique frosting flavors and a variety of fresh and decadent toppings. Design your own cinnamon roll, or choose from Cinnaholic’s best-selling combinations: Cookie Monster, Campfire Smores, Caramel Apple Pie, and the classic, Old School Roll. You can mix and match flavors to create a new experience every visit.
In addition to their signature, fresh-baked cinnamon rolls, their menu features bite-sized Baby Buns, cookies, brownies, and raw, edible cookie dough. We proudly serve locally sourced coffee (at most locations), and offer many customizable catering options.
Visit Cinnaholic’s website to view its entire menu. Cinnaholic currently operates multiple locations across the country and has two other Florida locations (one in Coral Springs and another in Boca Raton).
Cinnaholic co-founders Shannon and Florian Radke met in 2008 while Florian was visiting San Francisco. The two bonded over their love of animals and passion for eating a plant-based diet. She fell in love with his accent; he fell in love with her baking, and with a little help from friends and family, Cinnaholic was born.
The couple opened the first Cinnaholic bakery in Downtown Berkeley, California in 2010. In 2014, the pair appeared on ABC’s hit television show, Shark Tank. After the show, they adopted a franchise business model and began expanding Cinnaholic locations across the U.S. and Canada.
