Overpriced. Stale. Skip it. This place is definitely not worth a visit. There are much better options.

Lilly Mae's is a cute little place next to Sly McFly's . They have these big, gooey frosted cinnamon rolls, (that rival that "famous" brand that ends in 'bon'...), as well as cool shortbread cookies in different shapes. You could buy one cinnamon roll and...More

Avoid this place. Cinnamon rolls were stale and clearly not baked fresh on site. The prices were ridiculous, $6 for a stale cinnamon roll. They also sold mini cinnamon rolls for $3.25/piece which were the same ones you buy at Costco for $10/24 pack. Normal...More

I tried the low cal splenda rolls and frosting and they were GREAT! Butter always makes any pastry better. There is also a large variety of cookies and brownies-all homemade. Not the most inexpensive place, but very good for sinful excess!!

Stopped in before the Aquarium at 9:30 am expecting fresh baked cinnamon rolls. We got day old dry rolls. I've had better out of the can from Pillsbury.

We came here for the gluten free cinnamon rolls. They were good, especially the frosting. I've had better from bakeries that didn't specialize in cinnamon rolls though. They were tiny. At $6 a pop I expected more.

After our Monterey Free Walking Tour we stopped to sit inside and have a sweet treat - a cinnamon roll. Was very good. Good location on Cannery Row. Recommend.

Food was tasty but very overpriced, atmosphere almost none existent and no reason to return, handy as a short top up, at cost!

We stopped here to purchase a quick bite to eat between lunch and dinner. Although there were three workers behind the counter, none of them greeted us. The cookies were pricey at $3.95 each. The pretzel was microwaved and very plain. We won't be returning...More

The cinnamon aroma drifting out onto the street draws you into this little shop. Service was ok, bit slow but get the impression staff is mostly young kids on school break doing their best. Cinnamon rolls are heated in microwave. They were OK.
