Garcia Donuts Makes a Mean Cinnamon Roll

Sometimes you experience something so good that you just want to tell the world…so here goes…

(Clears her throat) Eh…uuhmm.

Okay, I’m being a tad bit dramatic, but when I say that I had the best cinnamon roll ever, I really mean it. On my recent trip to Laurel, Mississippi, I was on a mission to get Garcia Donuts. Why?

Well, because the last time I was in the area, I saw that hokey yet endearing doughnut-shaped sign, and I just knew it was going to be a gold-star experience.

I wasn’t mistaken.

Garcia’s does have a whole menu of doughnuts as well as breakfast and lunch offerings. I’ve heard it’s pretty awesome. Prayerfully, I can save that for my next trip.

When I got to the counter, the lady who was serving told me there was only one cream cheese frosted cinnamon roll left. And my thoughts were, “Come to Mama!” It was so fresh and just the right texture—soft and flakey. And since, I am kind of a sweets fanatic, I loved that the frosting was loaded with such liberality. It was divine.

I know you might think, “All this fuss over a cinnamon roll?!!!” But listen…a really good cinnamon roll isn’t as prevalent as you’d think. If you’re used to your usual convenience store or chain doughnut shop version, Garcia Donuts helps you raise your expectations. I love it when that happens.
