The mystery Las Vegas location for Cinnamon’s Restaurant’s surprise expansion from the Hawaiian island of Oahu has been solved. Since its Kailua debut in 1985, Cinnamon’s has become a favorite of locals and tourists, earning fame for their award winning "guava chiffon" pancakes.
The move to the Ninth Island will place them in a corner spot at the Shoppes at Summerlin Parkway, replacing Parma By Chef Marc, shuttered since July of last year.
Serving only breakfast and lunch, the casual concept also operates at the Ilikai Hotel & Luxury Suites in Waikiki and has previously sent some "Aloha Spirit" to Japan, with branches in Omotesandou, Tokyo and Yokohama.
The 3,664-square-foot Las Vegas restaurant is aiming for a November debut and has been advising new hires to expect 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. opening hours.
On the Hawaiian comfort food menu, staples such as kalua pork, crab cake and Mahi Mahi eggs Benedicts, loco moco and "the Island's best" pancakes, including carrot with sour cream cream cheese and the red velvet, described as an "OMG treat."
