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

            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 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.

            Viktor Bene's makes some good ones.

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

              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.
