When I decided to go to Texas to attend Fiesta Week; I knew I had to visit Lulu’s Bakery & Cafe. I’d never heard of Lulu’s until I watched an episode of Man vs. Food, where the host, Adam, was touring San Antonio. When I saw that 3 pound Cinnamon Roll… I knew I had to have one! When I drove into the parking lot, I was a little surprised to see an … “older” looking building. No worries, some of my favorite places to eat are little hole-in-the-wall joints! I waited in the car for a bit, you see, I was meeting a sweet friend from high school… a friend I had not seen since graduation! After she arrived, and we hugged and dried our tears, we went into Lulu’s. I also had my cousin with me- we were ready to see what all the fuss was about! If you like diners, you’ll love Lulu’s! I could tell there were a few regulars there… locals who knew the menu by heart. Lulu’s sells your typical American diner food, chicken fried steak, burgers, etc. But we were there for one thing & one thing only! When our waitress asked what we wanted to eat, the answer was simple, “I want the Cinnamon Roll, please!” I also ordered a glass of chocolate milk, because I’m a dairy freak! After placing our order, we sat back and enjoyed great conversation. Lulu’s is a fantastic place to reconnect with an old friend. Then, we saw it! It was a sight to behold! You know what they say, “Everything’s bigger in Texas!” That’s my cell phone, next to the Cinnamon Roll! We spent the first 5-10 minutes just looking at our roll in amazement! We could not get over how big it was, I’d never seen anything like it! It was a work of art (foodie art!), and I debated on whether or not to eat it. But it smelled So Good, I knew what needed to be done! Take a couple more pics before cutting into it! (Hey, you know I love photography!) The moment of truth was upon us, time to cut into it and see if it tastes as good as it looks… and smells! This was my slice! It was delicious! I was concerned that the flavor might not be there, because it was so big. One bite and I knew I had nothing to worry about. You see all that cinnamon? The flavor was on point, no complaints! We each ate a little of it, and then I had it wrapped up so I could take it with me. (What? Did you think I was gonna eat the whole thing?) I ate off of that roll for the next few days. Every night, I would cut off a chunk and heat it up in the microwave… and every night it was delicious! If you’d like to visit Lulu’s Bakery & Cafe, it’s located at 918 N. Main St in San Antonio, TX.
