Here, Eat This: Mobile Mug's Cinnamon Roll



If you haven't caught up with Mobile Mug yet, you'll probably want to. That's because not only does the caffeine-fueled food truck – the brainchild of Clark Cooper Concepts, the guys behind places like Brasserie 19, Coppa Osteria, and the soon to open The Dunlavey – bring European-style illy coffees to the streets of Houston, but they also pack some seriously good cinnamon rolls alongside. Cinnamon rolls which are quickly gaining a cult following, we might add.

And it's no wonder. The dough is scratch-made every morning at CCC's urban-country concept Punk's Simple Southern Food before being transported to the truck to be freshly baked. Find the giant red mug that sits atop the truck to get a perfectly balanced Americano with a warm and fluffy, crazy good cinnamon bun to dip inside.


The crave-worthy rolls ($3.50 each) come plump and smothered in a gooey and creamy icing, while each and every crevice and twist is slathered with a warm, caramelized and sugary cinnamon spice. They are most definitely best eaten with a fork and knife (and maybe a couple napkins for good measure).

The truck also recently launched a savory roll menu featuring cheesy, crisp and golden spirals in two flavors: Broccoli & Cheese and Ham & Cheese. Both make the perfect breakfast, lunch or snack alongside a cool and refreshing iced tea.

Follow the truck on Facebook or Twitter to see what they're up to next.
