Palmeras, Palmiers ... Elephant Ears!

  • 7

Whatever you call them - where can I get 'em! A friend brings them into work from a Hispanic bakery in Brooklyn, Lopez Bakery on 5th ave. I've tried a few places in Manhattan but they don't measure up ... any clues?

  1. If you're uptown at all, Silver Moon Bakery on Broadway at W. 106th Street has excellent palmiers.

    Zabar's sometimes has small palmiers in a container. If I remember correctly, they're packaged by E.A.T., which suggests that one could get 'em at E.A.T., too.

    1. William Greenberg (Madison and 82nd) has palmiers, I have never tasted them, but I do love their cookies.

      1. Dean & Deluca typically has a few palmiers in their bread display. The mini-palmiers from E.A.T. are really good. Also try Baltzahar and Ceci-cela - I'm not sure about Baltzahar, but I'm pretty sure ceci-cela had palmiers.

        1. I've been by Ceci-cela and didn't find any but didn't ask just looked. I visited a hispanic bakery on ave B near 14 and had mini ones that tasted like corn flakes ... NOT yummy ;).

          1. I like the ones at Sweet MElissa on Houston St. but I'm definitely not an expert!
