Bakery Bun for burgers (Pasadena)

I need to buy great buns to make burgers at home. My favorite kind when I eat out are the bakery buns that are light and thin (not too bready, so the focus is on the meat). For example, I love the buns at The York.

Where can I buy these? I have looked at Whole Foods but I didn't see anything good. Any ideas? Anything near Pasadena or surrounding areas (Eagle Rock, Silver Lake) is good.

  1. We use the onion buns from the bakery section at How's market. I'd imagine their plain buns would work fine, as well.

    1. Try Bristol Farms in the bakery section. They are made fresh in the store.
