Delicious puffs

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

First of all, the food court in the Westfield Plaza, is not your ordinary food court...really outstanding choices of different ethnic meals or burgers, soup etc. Papa Beards sells cream puffs!! They can be filled with the custard type filling of your choice...I prefer the creamy vanilla or chocolate...you can buy them glazed with chocolate ganache if you wish....they sell... More

Staying in SoMa

Neighbourhood Profile
SoMa
South of Market (SoMa), has an urban and sophisticated vibe, but you're more likely to find big nightclubs and lots of industrial loft residences than you are to find boutique shopping. Although it’s the epicenter for tech startups in the city, visitors will be able to do more than just business - museums, top quality restaurants, and the San Francisco Giants now call this neighbourhood home. Most of its freeway-sized streets may not capture the same character as other neighbourhoods in the city, but pockets of charm, like South Park, can still be found throughout its side streets.
