robert, i agree with the san fran posters about La Boulangerie- on Post in SF. just WOW. they also serve them WITH creme anglaise at the same-owner restnt- Chez Nous ,around the corner from La Boul.- on Filmore. aren't you in SF? it's just like one of the other SF posters said- the seductive combination of somewhat crisp exterior and soft creamy insides. all flavor of vanilla.
