Where to find "French Waffles" (danish pastries w/ buttercream) in LA??

There is a pastry called a FRENCH WAFFLE which is a long puff pastry with buttercream in the middle along with a light layer of raspberry jam. I have only been able to find them at a Danish bakery in Santa Barbara called Andersen's.. I love these things and there must be a bakery in/near LA that carries them. Anyone know?

      Hi and thanks. I'd already googled and called those folks -- none of them have what I'm looking for. They are really hard to find!

      1. re: foodluvver may have to drive up to Solvang! sorry none of them worked out for you.

    2. I've had french waffles from Hygge (downtown l.a.) so many times. So, yes, they have it there.

        Yeah, they started making them a couple months after this thread was started. Hope the OP didn't go a whole year without that knowledge.

      2. The only place I have found these is in solvang. Some bakeries delivery. I ordered from the Solvang Bakery, their cost was the lowest and the arrived in good condition. They are also called Danish Waffles. Fantabulist Dessert in world!!! Look them up at The Solvang Bakery.

        1. Had something very similar a couple of weeks ago at Copenhagen Pastry, in Culver City. Incidentally, CP is waiting on some electrical thing to open in Pasadena, on East Colorado, just east of Rosemead, next to Big 5. Should be very soon.
