Good hamburger buns SEATOWN

Does anyone know a good place to purchase quality hamburger buns? Not too crusty or bready, but not puffed white air and sesame seeds either. Thanks

  1. Macrina Bakery makes some brioche hamburger buns that are pretty damn good - but their large diameter won't suit everyone's tastes.

      I like Macrina's brioche buns as well - picked them up at Metropolitan Market recently.

    2. I like the hamburger buns from Essential Bakery and think they fit your description. I have purchased them at the Whole Foods on Denny.

        I went to the Essential on Madison today and they said they don't make a hamburger bun. Maybe just at that store?

          I was at the Whole Foods on Denny today and double checked: they do have hamburger buns identified as "Essential" in the area of the bakery where you can select individual items, and they are with other items from Essential Bakery. I didn't get to ask anyone about them though. They also had bags of the Macrina brioche buns -- those looked good too. Actually, I made the mistake of shopping when hungry so pretty much everything looked good! I've never seen CC buns -- will definitely give them a try. Is there any where else where you can purchase them? Thanks.

      2. Columbia City Bakery in Columbia City has the absolute best hamburger buns...not too large , not too thick and they do not fall apart (Macrina's brioche).

          I will have to try CC's hamburger buns. I am in love with their breads.
