Cinnaholic, a bakery that sells plant-based, allergen-friendly cinnamon rolls and other desserts, celebrated its grand opening July 28 for its new Noblesville site at 13185 Harrell Pkwy. with a ribbon-cutting ceremony.
Sanya Strawser, who owns the Cinnaholic stores in Carmel and Noblesville with her husband, David Strawser, said their goal is to eventually open bakeries throughout Indianapolis but are focusing north of the city for now.
Sanya said the Indianapolis area needs bakeries with vegan options, and Cinnaholic fills that need.
“We’re 100 percent plant-based and we are 100 percent scratch-made kitchen, so we make everything fresh every single day,” Sanya said. “When you see places offering vegan options in terms of desserts, it’s not vegan because the sugar has bone char in it. Nobody knows that. Only true vegan people know this. We don’t use that.”
Sanya said she only makes food at Cinnaholic that she would eat and what she would feel comfortable giving to her 10-year-old son.
“It does not taste like cardboard,” she said. “It actually tastes very, very good. And 100 percent of the comments, once people eat it, (and) when they find out it’s vegan, they’re blown away.”
Sanya said she recommends customers try the caramel apple pie cinnamon roll. She said one of the reasons she chose to open her business was because of a caramel apple pie cinnamon roll she had at a Cinnaholic in New Jersey.
“Truly, this place exists because we love this community,” she said of the Noblesville store. “We’ve always supported our community (and the) community has always supported us. I want to continue down that path.”
Cinnaholic is open Monday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. and from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. on Sundays.
