STICKY BUN OF THE DAY! The ‘Morning Bun’ from Bridgehead

Like a high-topped kugelhopf, this is quite a different style of cinnamon bun. Here’s introducing the Morning Bun. Such delicate flavour! Wonderfully dredged in brown sugar and cinnamon, this flaky pastry tastes faintly of orange. Reminiscent of a Danish — the one you’ve wanted all your life. Coffee klatch, anyone? $2.50 each. 

224 Dalhousie St., 613-562-9996; plus 12 other Ottawa locations, www.bridgehead.ca

This concludes our series of five sticky buns in five days. Happy sampling.

BREAD & SONS BAKERY 

A Chocolate Cinnamon Swirl will get you twirling any morning — or any time, really. Undeniably. It’s buttery, it’s crisp, and it’s ever so crumbly. Then the filling, rich and deep. Luxurious cocoa and butter keep sweet cinnamon in abeyance. Perfect balance. As for lightness — almost unbearable. $2.25 each.

STICKY BUN OF THE DAY! An ethereal caramel creation from 3 Tarts

By Cindy Deachman

3 TARTS 

The sticky bun, pale and golden, is almost ethereal. That thick caramel on top, though, keeps things real — moist and soft. Rather like a luscious upside-down cake, truth be known. The ones with pecans give a judicious crunch. $2.75 each. 1320 Wellington St. W., 613-729-9832.
