Hoping to buy/order a few dozen brioche hamburger buns for a 4th of July BBQ in a few weekends...

Has anyone here had any experience with them?

Both purchasing, and using them for burgers?

        Should I place an order with them, then pick 'em up?

        Or just go to a farmers' market to purchase them? Will they offer a full variety at the farmers' market?

        How do they taste and do they hold up well with a juicy burger?

          I spoke with them today.You can go to Urban Breads for order and pick up or to the Farmer's Market.
          I use the American Dinner Roll(4") or their Hamburger Roll(6"-7". I think that they are rich and delicate for a Hamburger.

            Thanks for the advice/info...

            I went with 'Urban Bread' and the (new) owner, Al Simball, is a really nice gentleman.

            My order was placed and processed with minimal fuss and the PANoRAMA brioche buns held up well enough to the delicious and juicy Pat LaFrieda sourced (dry-aged) burgers I made this past weekend... =)

        Interesting...

        From a sfgate post about Wayfare Tavern's bun...

        'Panorama makes the brioche buns specifically for Wayfare Tavern. They are purposely served a day old because when used fresh they become soggy and falls apart; the day-old toasted buns better absorb the juices.'
