The sweet smell of cinnamon rolls is coming to Times Square.

Cinnabon, which closed its Manhattan location in Penn Station last year, plans to open a new location in Times Square in early November, a company spokeswoman said.

“Since closing the Penn Station location last year, we have been diligently seeking the perfect spot for our return,” said Cinnabon President Joe Guith. “Times Square offers the convenience that our guests have been asking for.”

The new Cinnabon will share a storefront with an Auntie Anne’s Pretzels in a co-branded location at 42nd Street and 8th Avenue. The store will offer the full Auntie Anne’s menu along with limited Cinnabon offerings including the company’s signature Classic Roll, MiniBons and BonBites.

Cinnabon also has New York City locations in the Queens Center Mall in Elmhurst, on Third Avenue in Bay Ridge and in Kings Plaza Shopping Center in Marine Park.
