Christy Marie's: The Best Cinnamon Rolls In Town

By Staff in Food on Feb 14, 2014 9:45PM

Christy Marie’s special order cinnamon rolls taste like they’re made in your Southern grandmother’s kitchen, which is exactly where Chris Meyer got her training, growing up in Kentucky. Armed with a culinary degree from Southeastern Institute of Culinary Arts in St. Augustine, Fla., Meyer brings a southern sensibility to each dreamy bite.

Voted Chicago’s best cinnamon roll by Time Out Chicago in 2012, these delectable treats are a cross between a cakey donut and a blissful breakfast roll, filled to the brim with cinnamon spice. Each gooey bite delivers a toothsome sweet roll, a crunchy cinnamon interior, and a tangy, vanilla cream cheese frosting that takes these rolls to the next level.
