If you love cream puffs you must go here! Cream puffs made from scratch with unique cream fillings like mango, vanilla, and chocolate. They are not very big but they are full of delicious cream! It's a tiny bakery with only a few seats on a counter top but well worth the trip!

nice place. Food is not too sweet. Enjoy the place with friends. My friend used to be an adviser on the dessert.

If you enjoy pastries, this is a great spot to stop. Their food is excellent and very worth a try. Locals love it - but beware, it's hard to resist returning!

Staying in Vancouver, this was close to our Richmond hotel. For $2.50 we enjoyed a fresh cream puff, which are available in a carrier of filling flavors.

We were so surprised to find Beard Papa's in Vancouver. We had to try one. Ordered the green tea filled cream puff-tastes as I remember it. Oh, so yummy. The green tea crime oozed out of my first bite. YUM!

The Service: FANTASTIC!! Only one staff on duty.... so please be patience. Everything is made to order. The Food: All the cream puffs were prepared the same day. The puff is so soft, the vanilla & green tea filling are so creamy!! They are not over-sweet. JUST PERFECT!!!

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.

Staying in West End

Neighborhood Profile
West End
A hodgepodge of landscapes, the West End combines verdant gardens and blocky modern architecture, with Victorian bits and Edwardian bobs in between. It is a paradise for takeout food, take-away coffee, and perhaps incongruously, some of Vancouver's most languid lines of beachfront. English Bay and Sunset Beach invite swimmers, strollers, and picnic-lovers to take in dusk settling over the water, or to jog along with the sunrise, offering breathtaking views at any time of day. The West End merges together so many looks and flavors probably because it functions a hub: its the leafy pit-stop between nightlife and entertainment venues along Davie Street, and the shopping paradise that is Robson Street, offering visitors beautiful parkland to rest on, and quick, easy food to re-fuel with in between ventures.
