Fluffy, sweet and soft, the cinnamon scroll is a hug in sweet, doughy form.
It’s no secret that Perth has somewhat of a cinnamon scroll obsession. Let’s be honest, you’d be hard-pressed to find someone who doesn’t enjoy a cinny scroll, roll, bun or however you’d like to call them.
A true crowd-pleaser, the humble cinnamon scroll is the perfect sweet treat, and if you too have a soft spot for these soft pastries, here’s where you can find the best cinni scrolls around Perth.
North Street Store
We think it’s fair to say that Cottesloe’s North Street Store could be considered the spiritual home of the cinnamon scroll. So much so, in fact, that leaving North Street without one is akin to leaving the RE Store without a conti roll. Made fresh in store and colossal in size (we hope you’re hungry!) these iconic cinnamon scrolls are a must-try.

Last Crumb Cake Co
A sweet tooth’s dream, Last Crumb Cake Co covers everything sweet and delicious, from decadent chocolate cake and sprinkle-covered doughnuts to, of course, soft cinnamon scrolls. Inside the Bassendean bakery, you’ll find a cabinet filled with an impossible number of sweet treats that beckon your eyes to be far bigger than your belly.
77 West Road, Bassendean
Cheerio Coffee might be small, but its knotted cinnamon bun delivers in a big way. Baked by Mary Street Bakery’s former head baker, Courney Gibb, the changing selection of pastries always hits the mark, so even when the cinnabuns aren’t on, there will always be something equally as delicious to munch on.

The weekend isn’t complete without a sourdough cinnamon scroll from General Public. Their classic vanilla glazed scroll just melts in your mouth and is even more delicious when warm. They’re known for selling out of their cinnamon buns on the weekend, so you better get in early to get your cinni-fix. (Clare Ryan)

If you’re looking for a less traditional interpretation of the classic cinnamon roll, consider paying a visit to Grain Bakery in Lathlain, or their new location in Shenton Park. Giving the typically soft cinni scroll a deep-fried crunch, your sweet tooth is sure to be satisfied at this top-notch bakery.

Miller & Baker
As the name suggests, Miller & Baker bakes all its incredible sweet and savoury goodies using its very own freshly-milled flour, which is no small feat. Among the neighbourhood bakery’s tasty pastry selection, you’ll often find a stack of cinnamon scrolls (provided you get there early) that deliver just the right level of sweetness.

Not all cinnamon scrolls are the same. You might know Wild Bakery for its amazing bread, but did you know that they also make cinnamon scrolls? The team at Wild Bakery make Swedish buns, which is their version of a cinnamon scroll. (Clare Ryan)

With locations in Mount Lawley, East Vic Park, Bentley and Freo, you could say Sinamon has built a cinn-empire around Perth. Specialising in the humble cinni-bun, expect to find the bakery and café’s namesake as well as a range of pastries, including croissants and fresh fruit Danishes.

George’s Café is a hidden cinnamon roll paradise in City Beach. Their light and fluffy cinnamon scrolls are made and baked in-house and are addictive. They’re sweet, but not so rich that you won’t be able to eat a whole scroll by yourself. (Clare Ryan)
