Description and review of Spinners Cinnamon Rolls, a long-time favorite of Sacramento cinnamon roll connoisseurs.
A Bit of Background
Spinners Cinnamon Rolls, established in 1986, was a fixture in the Downtown Plaza Mall for close to 30 years. Spinners was displaced when the mall was razed to make way for the Golden 1 Center and Downtown Commons (DOCO).
Owners Larry and Sandy Taing were (and still are) well known for both their friendly service and freshly-baked rich and gooey gourmet cinnamon rolls.

Spinners Cinnamon Rolls
I did not know where Spinners Cinnamon Rolls had relocated until I started making monthly trips to Parkside Pharmacy, a compounding pharmacy, for heart medication for my canine companion Mickey.
Across the street from the Del Rio Road shopping center, Spinners Cinnamon Rolls is housed inside the 76 Gas Station on Sutterville Road. The small bakery is to the left when you enter the entrance of the gas station convenience store. Spinners also serves Java City Coffee and expresso drinks, as well as other baked goods.
A Recent Visit
When I make the trip to Parkside Pharmacy I usually treat myself to lunch from La Bou Bakery & Café. Instead, my plan was to visit Spinners earlier in the day when the rolls were fresh out of the oven.

An added incentive to indulge was reading the November, 2022, AAA Via Magazine article 12 Best Cinnamon Rolls in the West.
When I stopped by Spinners, I had a choice of three types of cinnamon rolls: regular, walnut and raisin ($4.95). I chose walnut, although I was tempted by the raisin. My ideal cinnamon roll is one with both walnuts and raisins.
The friendly man who served me offered to also provide a fork and napkins. No doubt many patrons do not make it out of the parking lot before digging in! I declined, as my plan was to enjoy my cinnamon roll at home with a cup of coffee.
To sum up, while I am not a connoisseur of cinnamon rolls, I can say that I enjoyed every bite!
