Visited this little sweet shop today and the cream puffs are delicious. We picked the plain puff with the vanilla cream. A fun little stop for a treat!

This unobtrusive joint is tucked into a corner near Yerba Buena. The pastry is fresh and injected with the filling before your eyes. Crunchy, creamy, delicious, inexpensive. One of the local secret pleasures before the performances at YB or cappuccino at the Boulangerie across the street. If you've never been, you should try. And then hit the gym!

Just pop in and grab one or two puffs with the chosen filling. They are fresh and delicious and classic vanilla cream is gorgeous!

We stopped here for a treat after coming into the city from Sunnyvale on a cool Monday afternoon. There was a line but the wait was short and worth every minute. Everything is made fresh on site and delicious. Eat these treats just outside on the cafe tables...they are made to be eaten immediately...don't store them. If you need to... More

We passed by here after having lunch at the nearby Mexican restaurant and couldn't resist stopping by. You could smell the cream puffs outside and inside it was even better! You can choose cream puffs or eclairs and then the filling -- vanilla, chocolate or their filling of the day, this time green tea. We had a vanilla eclair --... More

Stumbled upon Beard Papa's on an aimless walk on a lovely day in SF. A very nice and sweet surprise--big, well-filled vanilla bean cream puff! The pastry crust was nicely crisp with a custardy cream filing, plus nice little cafe tables right outside to enjoy the sun and your cream puff. Lovely!

In NY we have a great cream puff place (Choux Factory), and I wanted to see if these cream puffs are any match. I went in on Friday in the morning, hoping for a fresh pastry. What I got is a over baked puff with an ok cream. The puff ended up crunchy and falling apart. I had a vanilla... More
