Say bonjour to Choux!

Say Bonjour to Choux SF | French By Design

We got the chance to visit Choux SF, a recently opened French bakery in San Francisco. Located in the Lower Haight neighborhood, Choux SF is the brainchild of Laura, a former interior design Parisian architect who decided to quit her day job to pursue her dream : opening a French bakery specialized in choux – think chocolate eclair/ cream puff in bite sizes – in San Francisco, CA.

Laura has this incredible energy of entrepreneurs who believe in their dreams and her passion can be found in every choux bite. I personally tasted the “Sunny” choux, a lemon custard and meringue choux, and the “Frenchie” choux, a chocolate filled one with a hint of raspberry. Oh my. I can’t find the right words for how wonderful these small choux bites are. And they look so lovely, a great alternative to cupcakes as a hostess gift.

I highly recommend you pay Choux SF a visit. Laura is baking her goodies right in front of you, and if you get a chance to chat a bit with her you’ll see the sparkle in her eyes when she talks about her lovely baked choux. Bon appétit and welcome to San Francisco, Choux SF!

  1. Oh.My.
    These little choux look absolutely divine. Adding this spot to my next SF visit list. Thank you so much for sharing this great find! Xo, C-

  2. Bonjour! It looks wonderful! Will put info in my phone so I can visit when in San Francisco, but doesn’t choux mean cabbage in French?

    Bonne apres-midi,
    Cathy

    1. Yes, choux means cabbage as a vegetable. But “Choux à la crème” is a cream-filled puff pastry in French. Such a complicated language, huh! Xx, Si-

  3. Oh yum, hopping on a plane to San Fran right now!! Choux pastry is my absolute favourite, thanks for sharing.

  4. Quel plaisir de découvrir la french creativity in SF… la vie chez toi par le “petit” bout de votre objectif a 4 mains est carrément alléchant… je viendrais bien m’y installer… avec LaM.P – SF ;-))
