Cinnamon Hazelnut Coffee is back this season as a limited-edition flavor, and if you’re a fan, you’ll also love our recipe for Cinnamon Hazelnut Coffee Cake, which we serve right here in the Berres Brothers café. Featuring hazelnut syrup and plenty of streusel, this recipe brings out the subtle cinnamon spice and hazelnut flavors of its coffee counterpart for a sweet, flavorful breakfast that feels more like dessert.
