    If your heart can handle the calories and cholestrol, get a lobster claw. Its like a pound and 1/2 of creme puff.

    It'll change your life.

      My lobster claw comment was to Court Pastry. The best in this area for cream puffs. Monteleone's might be a better place overall but Court Pastry is creme puff master.

      Try COURT STREET BAKERY. Sample a cannoli as well--the only good ones I've ever had. Also their tricolors and other cookies are very good--moist and flavorful, especially if you like that almondy-marzipanny taste (I do).

      The girls working there are a trip, too. I think they are selected based on 2 criteria: the length of their fingernails and the thickness of their accents : )

      Also, have you tried Sweet Melissa or that french brasserie joint on Smith?

        Or Marquet Patisserie on Court & Warren.

          It's unanimous! I couldn't agree more about Court Street's cookies, just didn't realize that they made cream puffs and lobster tails too! Fantastic, thanks.

          I'm pretty sure I've had good ones from Court Pastry.
