    Surprisingly, Canter's one is good. Need to find a more traditional/lighter version though. I had a good one at Trois Mec last year, but you can't buy that obviously.

        Since I happened to be searching for reports on Chaumont anyway, I found this, where TonyC at least notes that they have them:

          Ipse, I went on Saturday morning with the intention of trying one for you, but it was too early for the Napoleons. Did you find one?

            No, not yet. But thanks for the effort.

          I like the ones from Pink Orchid Bakery in Westwood. Quite light.

            Hi Ipse, In the SFV try Beas, Portos, and Edies which now has a location in Tarzana at 17316 Ventura Blvd as well as in the older location in Canoga Park.
