There’s nothing that can replace the gooey goodness of a delicious cinnamon roll.

Except maybe vegan cinnamon rolls…

Victoria is welcoming an international vegan cinnamon roll bakery soon and has set construction on 535 Yates Street.

Cinnaholic is a popular bakery providing custom-made vegan, dairy and lactose-free, egg-free, and cholesterol-free cinnamon buns.

They offer fresh cinnamon rolls with 40 different frosting flavours and 40 different toppings with half the calories compared to their competitors.

They also offer catering services.

The California-based company gained notoriety on the show Shark Tank seven years ago and has since opened locations internationally, which now includes stores in Alberta and Ontario.

The company was not able to provide a set opening date.

While this may be the first Cinnaholic on the island, it’s not the first vegan bakery in Victoria.

Alfalfa Bakehouse is a locally owned plant-based, vegan-friendly bakery available for online orders.

The owner operates from her kitchen and offers cheesecakes, shortcakes, and trifles, among many other things.

So while you’re waiting on that Cinnaholic fix, shop local!
