We scoured the city for amazing cinnamon rolls, and while the enormous cream cheese-slathered version at Lodge Bread has its merits, we’ve yet to find a better version than Christopher Federici’s Gooey Center Bakery. Fluffy, soft and coated in just the right amount of frosting, these buns are worth chasing across town. Best of all, they happen to be plant-based—which means the most consistent place you’ll find them is at North Hollywood’s Vegan Exchange every Sunday. On various days of the week, Federici also hands off a few buns to cafés in Echo Park (Canyon Coffee), Burbank (Romancing the Bean, Tansy), Eagle Rock (Muddy Paw) and Pasadena (Lavender and Honey). To find out where these buns will pop up next, follow Gooey Center on Instagram.
