In March, Cinnamon Productions opened its third location in San Clemente’s Ocean View Plaza. In 1987, the chain began as a small bakery in downtown Seal Beach, known for its deluxe cinnamon rolls and other treats. As its treats attracted a following, owners Randy and Nanci Farah were inspired to open larger cafes in Rancho Santa Margarita and later Ladera Ranch.
The Seal Beach bakery has since closed, but now that the newest location has opened, San Clemente residents and visitors can enjoy Cinnamon Productions’ meal and desserts. Cinnamon Productions features a full bakery in addition to serving breakfast, lunch and dinner.
The bakery prepares freshly made cookies, brownies, muffins, scones and more, ranging from $1 to $2.50. It also bakes up cupcakes, pies and cakes.
All-day breakfasts, ranging from eggs to French toast and pancakes, are especially popular. For lunch and dinner, the eatery makes salads, sandwiches, paninis and other entrees. Children 12 and under have their own menu.
