A new bakery and dessert shop is coming to The Domain in North Austin soon.

Cranky Granny’s Sweet Rolls will open its first storefront May 29 in the North Austin shopping center at 10910 Domain Drive, Ste. 106, Austin. Owner Sianni Dean, a 22-year-old entrepreneur, last year moved the company from New Jersey to Austin in order to sell sweet rolls out of the kitchen at Midtown Live in East Austin. Back on the East Coast, Dean said she was operating Cranky Granny’s out of her apartment.

“That’s basically why we moved to Texas. ... We had the opportunity to sell out of an actual restaurant,” Dean said. “And everyone loves to eat out here in Texas.”

Cranky Granny’s is going to totally relocate from its current space at Midtown Live to its new brick-and-mortar storefront in The Domain, according to Dean.

The new bakery will focus on Dean’s sweet rolls, which are similar to cinnamon rolls with an assortment of flavors. Cranky Granny’s offers flavors such as banana pudding and caramel apple, with seasonal flavors added to the menu on a rotating basis. Dean said she will also serve ice cream and milkshakes out of the new storefront and will continue to deliver sweet rolls through the mail.
