Very tasty pastries but there's a real weird vibe at the Robson Street location. Japanese people are generally really nice, confident and friendly but the staff here are really depressing. I'll buy their pastries but I wish there was a different location.

If you love sweets, you will love this small shop on Robson. It specializes in creampuffs of all shapes, sizes and flavors. Don't try to count calories with these sweets, but indulge your tastebuds. Try the chocolate/almond creampuff.

West End location is closed but downtown location is easy to get to. Very tiny shop but wonderful cream puffs. I was told there is a green tea filling available that is less sweet but I went for sweet original and my husband had chocolate. Delicious.

A Beard Papa cream puff is like a taste of heaven. I've been to Beard Papa in a few countries and have never been disappointed. You can tell the delicious cream - whether it's green tea, chocolate, pumpkin or strawberry - is made fresh for you. There's no funky aftertaste and no guilt in savoring every bit like you might...

Leave room after stuffing yourself at the other food court places. We got a chocolate lava cake with ice cream, both were very good - daughter plowed through it before we could get more than a spoonful! Their cheesecake strips were also good. They had sold out on cream puff filling, so don't wait too long - keep in mind... More

I loooove Beard Papa. It always hits the right spot when I get a sweet craving or for dessert. Luckily there was a store just across the street from our hotel (L'Hermitage). This cream puff is proof of the old adage, "there's always room for dessert!"

OMG, this could be the home of my new favorite desert. I never knew cream puffs could be this good and I've eaten them all over France. What a wonderful walk-away treat!
