My first experience with this inviting cinnamon aroma of Cinnabon was when I performed umrah over a decade ago in Medina. When Cinnabon opened their doors in South Africa, I was excited! I used to buy Cinnabon in Canal Walk branch. Then came Cavendish Square branch! Yeay.. closer to home…. I have been waiting until Cavendish Square halaal certification was ready because this post is based on the Cavendish Square branch. So last time I bought from them, I saw MJC halaal certificate was on the wall.
Cinnabon in Cavendish Square is located close to the food court. There are 4 seats only, facing the work station where the baker kneads and prepares the rolls. Therefore it’s more for take away. Well, that’s what I do most of the time anyway, buy for take away and enjoy the rolls at home with the family. I’ve ordered their Expresso and Cappucino in three separate occasions. Yet I couldn’t recommend their coffee, it was just so so. But definitely for the rolls!
The service could have been more attentive and improved though. Last time I came there were no small spoons to stir my coffee. I ended up stir it with a knife.
Now, back to the lovely cinnamon rolls! My fave is the caramel pecanbon (R32 or R22 for mini). For those who love original, you can opt for Classic (R28 or R18 for mini) and Chocobon (R31 or R19 for mini) for chocolate lovers.
Cinnabon offers 6 Combo Bites (R33), bites versions of all flavors. I think the bites version is great for those who watch their waists… Just take one bites though, if you took all six then it’s no use 🙂
Other offers are Roll on the Go (R24), Cinnabon Stix (R35) and BonBites (R35).
Hot drinks range from R14 to R26. Juice, water and soft drinks are on offer along with their signature iced drinks (from R30-R35). I haven’t tried their iced drinks though.
There are six Cinnabon branches in Cape Town, namely in Canal Walk, Cavendish Square, Cape Gate Shopping Mall, Sommerset Shopping Mall, Tygervalley Shopping Mall and V&A Waterfront.
However, this post is focused on Cavendish Square branch as I haven’t done a further research whether or not all branches have possessed halaal certification.
