|Mango Cream Beard Papa|
I finally went in when I was passing by on Denman in the West End. I looked at it and thought, it's a Cream Puff. I tasted it and I thought, it's a Cream Puff. I didn't and don't get it. Then subsequently, I went to San Francisco to visit my sister and she dragged me all over downtown to the food court beneath Nordstrom's because there was something she wanted me to try. We get down there and there it was, a Beard Papas! For crying out loud.

Admittedly, they are light and flaky, though when they're not fresh fresh, they can be a bit chewy on the corners. As well, the puff itself lacks any real flavour. The filling is flavourful and creamy without being to heavy as some custards can be. The Mango one was quite tasty though not big on Mango flavour. The Tea one had an interesting perfume to it. On the whole, they're good but am puzzled by their popularity above other French bakeries and pastries. I find the sell out of flavours annoying. I don't go in on my own and rarely get one for myself.
Cost: $$$ (for a puff)
