Does anybody know of a really good place for palmiers? I seem to find only subpar ones, which will not satisfy! I don't like them too cinnamon-strong...but with a nice chewy interior and crispy exterior. Thanks in advance!

    I saw a large container of palmiers at Costco -- in the bakery area with the cakes and cookies -- but I have never tasted one of theirs.

      Viktor Bene's makes some good ones.

      Also, Beverlywood Bakery on Pico... they do most everything well IMNSHO.

        I love palmiers. Unfortunately my favorite ones are from San Diego at Bread and Cie. Buttery, the right texture and heft, they are perfect. Too bad I live in L.A. There is no cinnamon.

          I'd like to know this.

          Cinnamon in Palmiers? never saw that before.

              Yes, at some bakeries I've been too there is cinnamon on them. I don't like it, but it's there. Thanks for the advice. Any other bakeries come to mind???

              I saw a whole box of them at Sorrento's Italian Deli in Culver City last week.
