Elephant Ear Pastries in SGV?

Does anyone know where I can find good elephant ears in the San Gabriel Valley? They are large, flat, cinnamon-sugared pastries and I've been spoiled by the ones in Solvang. Thanks!

      I *think* that I've seen them in the display cases at Sarki's on Washington in Altadena, but can't swear to that. I'll keep my eyes open in the future, though.

      Also, what constitutes a "good" elephant ear? (I'll gladly volunteer for the tasting comparisons *grinning*.)

        Hi ElsieDee,
        Thanks for the info. In response to your question, a good elephant ear to me should be sweet and crunchy on the outside, soft and moist in the middle.
