Sometimes a warm baked treat is exactly what’s needed to brighten a cold day. And if you’re like us, it’s hard to beat the classic cinnamon roll, especially at these 7 local spots.

Pattycake Bakery, 3870 N. High St.

Grab a few extra napkins as these sticky buns come fresh out of the oven dripping with frosting, but only on Saturday mornings. Did we mention these are vegan?

Resch’s Bakery, 4061 E. Livingston Ave.

Not all cinnamon rolls are the same — like this cinnamon donut which is lighter + fluffier.

Cafe Creekside, 53 Granville St.

Grab a cinnamon roll that comes fresh from the oven smothered in cream cheese frosting.

Kitties Cakes, Multiple locations

That moment when your cinnamon rolls + coffee are so good, you can expand to different parts of the city. That’s Kitties Cakes’ story, which has a location in Bexley, Worthington + German Village where it all began.

Omega Artisan Bakery, 59 Spruce St.

For those that prefer less icing + more cinnamon, this is the bakery for you. These sell out very quickly, so don’t say we didn’t warn you.

Fox in the Snow, Multiple locations

These come large enough to share, but they might be too delicious to share. We recommend getting two, and so does Eat This, Not That, which ranked them the best cinnamon roll in the state.

Buckeye Donuts, Multiple locations

Maybe the cinnamon bun isn’t quite a cinnamon roll, but it has all the qualities + Buckeye Donuts is open 24/7 on Ohio State’s campus for those late night cravings.
