And here's my first discovery: the Snohomish Pie Company makes cinnamon rolls!
While their pies looked ready to floor me-- there is no fighting a craving. So for 5 bucks, I had me a warmed cinnamon roll and diner coffee. And it was.. pretty good. It satisfied my craving, but it wasn't a bull's eye. It should've been a little hotter. The gooey center was delightful enough to make me pause, but what gooey cinnamon center wouldn't? The bread was lacking-- just a little too stale on the outside, and lacking that bold, yeasty flavor that I like. And I prefer pecans. So it was good, it was worth it, but just not super-amazing.
Winter is a great time to warm up mid-ride with a pastry reward-- so I just might embark on a quest this winter for:
the perfect mid/post-ride cinnamon roll!!
