Cinnamon Productions Bakery Café has been "Baking Freshness" since 1987.
In 1987, Randy and Nanci Farah opened the doors of Cinnamon Productions in downtown Seal Beach, California as a tiny shop with a tall counter, one small display case and a few stools. Homey and unpretentious, the Bakery Café concentrated on its best assets: baking know-how, unique recipes, and friendly service.
During these humble beginnings there were lines of customers out the door as folks young and old watched Cinnamon Production's talented bakers make delicious giant cinnamon rolls right before their eyes. The smell alone made the wait worthwhile.
Word spread about the tiny bakery with the thick, rich brownies, fresh baked cookies and delicious coffee. Soon Cinnamon Productions was bursting at the seams with daily customers from Seal Beach and visitors to this quaint seaside town.
Cinnamon Productions expanded into neighboring space, extending the café and adding additional outdoor seating. Soon, whole teams of cyclists and runners made Cinnamon Productions a regular stop to refuel with delicious food and drinks.
Randy and Nanci Farah have since relocated to Rancho Santa Margarita, where they fulfilled their dream of opening a much larger Cinnamon Productions Bakery Café.
The Cinnamon Productions Bakery Café in El Paseo Plaza, next to the RSM library, opened in 2002. It has all the charm, quality food and small-town service of the original Seal Beach café. Now, with more space, Cinnamon Productions Bakery Café offers a full menu for breakfast, lunch, and dinner with a wide assortment of baked goods. Family seating is available in the spacious café or outside patio.
As Cinnamon Productions Bakery Café’s popularity continued to grow, it became apparent that another location was needed. In 2010, Ladera Ranch’s Mercantile West Shopping Center became the home of Cinnamon Productions Bakery Café’s second location. The unique building has a dome shaped top, green and white exterior, brick walls, and maroon awnings. The Ladera Ranch location is a full-service bakery and café offering comfortable indoor and lovely outdoor seating surrounded by beautiful flowers. It is the perfect place for friends to gather, catch-up, and enjoy a delightful meal.
2012 was another big year for Cinnamon Productions Bakery Café as it opened its two newest locations in Foothill Ranch and San Clemente.
Cinnamon Productions in Foothill Ranch has its own unique feature of outdoor fountains. Children can be seen playing in the water as their parents look on while enjoying their meals under the cool shade of the outdoor patio umbrellas. Staying with our freshness concept, baking starts on-site at 4:00 am daily as we fill the parking lot with that sweet bakery aroma.
Cinnamon Productions Bakery Café in San Clemente is located just a mile from the beach. The interior is decorated with beach images from a local photographer to tie in with San Clemente’s beach town appeal. It is the perfect location for commuters, movie watchers, and beach goers to satisfy their sweet tooth with mouth-watering baked goods; that morning cup of coffee on the way to work; quench their thirst with specialty drinks; or grab a hearty meal.
Baking is still a daily event at Cinnamon Productions where the sweet aroma of gooey warm cinnamon rolls, cookies and breads can still be enjoyed. Baking know-how, delicious unique recipes and friendly service are still as important today as they were when the family business first opened in 1987.
