Just tried the Kouign-Amann. Buttery and sugary and crispy and flaky. Almost like a croissant/pineapple upside down cake without the pineapple. Today we grabbed the last 4 and they were out at around 11:00 am.

Anyone else try it yet?

        Just had it this morning. Chickie described it as a cross between palmier / croissant. Someone mentioned the K-M was "too doughy", but I heartily disagree. This is easily one of the best pastries of any kind in LA. No doubt it's a sugar buttery bomb but... maybe once a quarter?

          Strangest description of Kouign-Amann I've ever heard, but oddly I kinda "get it."

          In my experience it is very rare for Keller's Bakeries anywhere in the US to turn out a sub-par version of any classic pastry and I therefore really look forward to tasting this one next month.

            Very small selection compared to Yountvile. What I have had has been ver, very good. Great brioche. I would like to hear about the free parking, as I found parking very expensive.

              City of Beverly Hills Free Parking underground lot next to valet. This is where the valets park the car. We had lunch at Bar Bouchon today and easily self-parked our car. Entrances on Canon and Beverly

              No, but had a good chocolate croissant the other day. Good free parking when you figure it out. Chocolate-heavy which impressed my four year old.
