Cinnamon Works is one of the few scratch bakeries left in Seattle. Owner Michael Ruegamer opened the bakery’s doors over 37 years ago when he bought a small storefront and turned his baking hobby into a new career. Over the years, Michael, his wife Judy, and their daughter Gracie, have expanded their product offering of cinnamon rolls, whole wheat sticky buns, and giant chocolate chip cookies to include baked goods sought after by those who cannot eat “just any cookie”. People with gluten and dairy sensitivities are welcome with a variety of treats catering to restrictive dietary needs.
Cinnamon Works reflects the creativity and healthy living of the city it’s located in. The small team is constantly working on new recipes that not only taste delightful but that can be enjoyed by locals and tourists with food allergies. The bakery is located on the corner of Pike and Pine Street, and the delicious scent of their giant cookies will lead you right to their counter.
