      just looked at their website, seems they have some sweet deals going: free espresso if u buy more than $5 in store, cream puffs 5 for $10 (that's a deal cuz regular price $3 each!!--hope it's better than Beard Papa and I hope they have the three flavors available at their Los Altos store: traditional vanilla, caramel banana or green tea.

      I just tried the cream puffs at Satura Bakery in Palo Alto. I had the green tea one and it was disappointing. The cream puff itslef wasn't bad but it wasn't outstanding either. For $3 each I wouldn't go out of my way to eat it. I bought the 5 for $10 special so my cream puffs only came out to $2 each but, even at that price, I probably wouldn't go back for it. The cream puff was ordinary and I couldn't even taste any of the green tea flavor.

        I had a cream puff at Satura and also thought good, but not something I would crave for $3. The Pantry in Belmont has a good old fashioned, not fancy cream puff which is pretty good. Can't remember how much though...

          When I read about Satura a month or two ago, I decided that I had to try them as they are fairly close to my home. I was meeting a group for lunch and decided that I'd bring a box of their cream puffs as a dessert treat. My impression was that the shells tasted as though perhaps they had been frozen. They just didn't taste fresh, even though I bought them early in the morning shortly after they opened. I wasn't impressed with the filling either.

          My vote goes to Beard Papa - soon to open a branch in Downtown Redwood City!
