Masstown Market Cinnamon Rolls
As one of Nova Scotia’s favourite culinary destinations, the Masstown Market has been wowing customers with their incredible baked goods for more than 50 years. They have become famous for their breads, rolls, donuts and scones, which are all baked on site, from scratch, 7 days a week. But one item that gets an extra amount of attention is their irresistible cinnamon rolls – best enjoyed while they’re still warm and chewy.
