Bloorcourt’s shimmery cinnamon buns are absolutely worth the lineup outside this tiny shop on Delaware. There’s no skimping on the icing atop these perfectly imperfect swirls.

If you like your cinnamon delectables dense and absolutely coated in icing, head to the Junction for massive buns that are big enough to share.

Sourdough buns with salted caramel glaze and cream cheese frosting can now be delivered straight to your house. Or pick these treats up from Breadhead, currently operating out of the Artisan Factory on Geary.

These golden brown buns are changing up the game by, firstly, not being swirls but squares, with a generous pat of icing on top. Second, they’re completely vegan and gluten-free. Find them in Kensington Market or the Junction.

All the baked goods from this Little Italy cafe are dreamy. Their artfully messy cinnamon buns notwithstanding. They usually make these icy snacks on weekends.

This bakery chain with locations on the Danforth and by High Park is the vegan answer to Cinnabon. You can deck out every roll with different frosting flavours and over 20 options of toppings like tier famous cookie dough.

Big, sticky buns are the specialty at this Harbord Village bakery. Given the size and the sheer glossiness of it all, some will be happy to know these treats are gluten-free.

If you’re looking for something simpler than the usual icey mess, check out High Park’s healthy bakery, where cinnamon buns use raw sugar, cinnamon and molasses for all the gooeyness but less of the mess.

Glory Hole Doughnuts on Gerrard

Given the quality of donuts here, you can expect cinnamon buns to be equally good. This bakery with stores in Parkdale and in Little India make the occasional batch of melty cinnabon buns.
