By: Katie Goncalves | October 17, 2022

Picture it: you’ve been seated at a table and you’re scanning the menu deciding what you want to have for breakfast. The options are solid and there’s an outstanding balance between sweet and savory options. But then you see it, the one thing that can take breakfast from good to great – a cinnamon roll on the menu. Nothing compares to adding on a cinnamon roll side at breakfast and these Metro Detroit restaurants are serving up the best…



27302 Woodward Avenue, Royal Oak 

O.W.L. is a counter-service, Mexican-American spot open for breakfast, lunch, dinner, and late night. They serve their cinnamon rolls grilled which is the perfect add-on to any meal. Grilling the cinnamon roll melts the icing and sugar inside, leaving it warm, slightly crispy, and mouth-watering.
