Cinnamon Rolls bring up fond memories for me. Maybe it’s because when I think of any holiday, special occasion, or any type of celebration, I primarily think of food. Anyone else?
Seriously though, when I was growing up, cinnamon rolls were a regular part of my life. Every Sunday, I would wake up to the smell of fresh-baked bread getting slathered with cream cheese and a brown-sugar cinnamon glaze. It was a family tradition to enjoy these big, fluffy & soft rolls at the breakfast table together. While this family tradition was dreamy as a kid, I am now searching for the best cinnamon rolls in Spokane that I can bring back home to my family. I’ll cut to the chase and give you the list. Be sure to let us know if there are any we missed!
