When I was a young girl my mom and grandma would take me to Maas Brothers downtown St Petersburg. 
We would have lunch and then the most wonderful cinnamon roll/coffee cake with real butter. 
Could you possibly find this recipe. 
Thank you 

Hi Sharon,

Your request is a bit unclear to me. Are you looking for a recipe for cinnamon rolls or coffee cake or coffee cake that tastes like cinnamon rolls?

Maas Brothers Department Stores restaurants served something very popular called "cinnamon roll twists".  There are comments about these in many places on the Internet. I can't find any indication that they've ever been referred to as "coffeecake". Are those what you mean? There are recipes for them on these sites:

There is a book about Maas Brothers here: Remembering Maas Brothers
 "...popular in-store restaurants that featured its signature cinnamon twists"
