Bad customer service experience. Have been there numerous times. The cakes were yummy. In store services were fine. Online service was horrible. They simply ignored me when asking about over-charging.

My daughter and I have a routine of going to Satura on Sunday afternoons for coffee and pastries. We sit outside and read our paper. We love it.

This is the place for a real pastry experience. Haven't found its equal on the SF Peninsula. Always great coffee, too. Most important, they are open on many holidays when other cafes and pastry shops are not.

My favorite place in Los Altos to meet my friends and my business associates for latte, macaroons, and other sweet goodies. The service is friendly and the staff is cordial and helpful. Spotlessly clean, warm and inviting. Complimentary water is appreciated. I am a regular and so are quite a few people I meet there.

Their macaroons are fabulous and so are their earl grey cookies. They have this hot dog in a pastry that we got for my husband that was delicious (and I am not a dog person, but I had to have a bite)! There's a reason we had to stand in line because everything is sooo good.

So many delicious desserts here! The flavors are delicate and not too sweet. Some of my favorites are: green tea panna cotta, cassis, chocolate lemon roll, classic chocolate, green tea cream puff. Out of the baked goods, I LOVE the Kouing Amans, and my recent favorite, the Danish Dog. Try them!!

. . . and they are, trust me: melting-soft and sweet on the inside with a hint of crispiness on the outside. They are the perfect complement to a fresh cup of espresso coffee. Really doesn't get much better.

Sunday morning at Satura is becoming our family's tradition, for both generations. We love the almond croissant and their delicious coffee. A fresh small brioche is going home with us each time. Feels like a bit of European cafe on the main street of Los Altos.
