Cinnamon roll lovers can soon get their fix, as a new gourmet shop opens in Herndon.

Cinnaholic plans to open at the Village Centre at Dulles (2451 Centreville Road) this summer or autumn, according to owner Jessica Papa.

Papa says the 600-square-foot location will serve cinnamon rolls, cookie cakes, and other dairy-free and egg-free options.

“I’m hoping Cinnaholic visitors find joy and excitement while mixing and matching amongst the dozens of different icings and toppings,” Papa said.

Cinnaholic has over 70 locations across the U.S. and Canada. The Herndon location is expected to be Virginia’s first. Another location is planned Stafford.

“I’m bringing compassionate dessert options to my hometown,” Papa said, adding that most items on the menu are free of common allergens.

County permits show that alterations to the tenant space are underway.
