Cheat days are a saving grace for dieters around the world. For one day every once in a while, break the confines of your meal plan to enjoy the sweeter side of life. What better way to say “I love my body” than to fill it with sweet treats that are so worth celebrating. Ditch the diet with some of Canal Walk’s favourite bakeries and cafés.
Kick off your cheat day with one of the most crowd-pleasing brands to have graced the shores of the mother city. Cinnabon is certainly on a roll when it comes to satisfying a sweet-tooth. If you haven’t tried their menu of cinnamon rolls, we urge you to give in. Like, yesterday! This bakery, now found across the country, specialises in a multitude of cinnamon based treats that are so easy to fall in love with.
We understand how difficult it is to select just one item. But believe us when we say you’ll be sweeter than ever before after having one of their cinnamon rolls. Oozing with sugar, flavour, and dripping in cream cheese frosting, you might not make it through more than one. If your sweetness quota isn’t as far-stretched as a kid in a candy store, their menu offers bite-sized treats that are sure to make you weak at the knees. Enjoy their freshly baked caramel glazed Cinnabons, Cinnabon Stix, or Caramel Pecan BonBites. And if that’s just too much of a mouthful, they also offer hot drinks, iced coffee, and speciality frozen Chillatas.
