Dreamy Cream Puffs {Review of Choux Bakery}

Choux Cream Puffs at 248 Fillmore Street

The Lower Haight just became more hallucinogenic, thanks to a fancy little boutique selling a rainbow assortment of colorful French cream puffs. Choux Bakery is just what the neighborhood needed to edge forward from hippie to shi-shi. It's a taste of Parisian chic!

Opened this October, Choux Bakery is the creation of Laura Athuil, who recently relocated from Paris. Athuil trained at the prestigious Ecole LenĂ´tre and Atelier Alain Ducasse—two of the most renowned culinary programs in France.

Choux specializes in cream puffs made with a traditional soft, flaky dough and filled with silky custard in different flavors. The bakery uses high-quality authentic ingredients. Some of the key ingredients are special items imported from Europe that are favored by French chefs. There are 12 varieties: chocolate, vanilla, coffee, pistachio, rum, hazelnut, chocolate coconut, salted caramel, lemon, and seasonal flavors such as pumpkin. 

Laura's flair for design (she has a degree in Architecture and Design) is evident in the exquisite decor. The attention to detail in the frostings reflects the quality of the ingredients and adds a touch of refinement. Choux cream puffs are definitely worthy of a special occasion—a birthday celebration, baby shower, afternoon tea or dinner party. 

Choux cream puffs are a magical treat! C'est magnifique!
