Next door to Sapp Coffee Shop

Sorry, but I forgot to mention this. Not sure what the place is called, or really what it is, but I guess it is some sort of bakery/deli-type shop that is located right next door to Sapp. When I was leaving Sapp on Saturday, I looked into the window and a young guy was standing there making something. Intrigued, and always into finding something new, I stepped inside and asked him what he was making. His answer "street food". Great. They were being made on a griddle and were oblong in shape. Flat, thin, crisp. Then he put a thin layer of something that reminded me of Mallow Cream (could have been whipped egg whites - was sticky) on top of that. Then there were two types of toppings -coconut with some scallions and egg yolk (both toppings were finely grated). I asked how much they were and he said they had a $3 and a $5. I asked for the $3 and am happy to report that I got 9 pieces. 5 of the coconut and 4 of the egg yolks. Wow were they good. I ate them all in the car (shhh, don't tell anyone!). Does anyone know what these light, flavorful delicacies are? The crispy "cookie" thing tasted very much like a cross between a sugar cone and a regular cone.
TIA!
