Nothing beats the swirly goodness of a sweet and sticky cinnamon bun, especially when they are fresh and housemade.

These glorious buns can either be frosted with cream cheese or drizzled with caramel sauce and pecans.

Buns like these also happen to be an acceptable breakfast, snack, or cheat day meal – so go treat yourself to an ooey-gooey delight.

Here’s where to find the best cinnamon buns in Vancouver.

Grounds For Coffee’s cinnamon buns are legendary in Vancouver. The soft buns are made from scratch several times a day and are glazed with their homemade cream cheese icing. They make seasonal buns that are stellar, but the classic ones are a no-brainer when you’re in the mood for this sweet treat.

Do not be confused by the Schnecken at Trafiq. Although it is the German name for snail, it refers to the swirls of their soft sweet butter dough. Cinnamon spice, caramel sauce, and lots of chopped pecans are rolled between the fluffy layers of glorious cinnamon bun dough here.
