Cream puffs in Cobble Hill?
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?
