Move over Cinnabon, there’s a new kid in town and they’re plant-based. Cinnaholic, a vegan cinnamon bun bakery franchise is opening a location in South Tampa, and saving animals never tasted so sweet.

Besides regular ol’ cinnamon rolls, the bakery—located at 927 S Howard Ave, a past home of Walkabout Aussie Bakery Cafe—serves create-your-own rolls and “other sweet treats like made from scratch brownies, cookies and edible cookie dough.”

The menu also has set cinnamon roll combos like the Cookie Monster with cream cheese icing, cookie dough, chocolate chips and chocolate sauce and the Sparkle Berry with chocolate frosting, strawberries and sprinkles.

Whatever combination you order, everything is dairy, lactose, egg and even cholesterol-free. Cinnaholic also offers catering for small and large events.

Cinnaholic is the baby of Shannon and Florian Radke who opened their first shop in Berkley, California. That concept turned into a franchise after appearing on “Shark Tank.” (According to the company’s website, they were offered a deal via the television show which they declined.)

The bakery is the third Florida location, the others are in Boca Raton and Coral Springs. The opening date in South Tampa is unspecified, though Cinnaholic Tampa’s Facebook page states it will have an update soon.
