The puffs are smaller and they have less cream filling than when it first opened. The service is also lacking. The ladies who serve usually have a smile, but the guys look as though they would prefer to be elsewhere and not serving you.

These cream puffs are to die for. They are decadent, moist, sugary, large, and delicious. Not the best thing to eat if you're on a diet, but wow, are they good. There's a good variety of fillings and glazes as well. I particularly like the...More

Picked up a couple cream puffs before we headed to an A's game in Oakland. This place has great pastries. Will definitely return as they do not disappoint.

Beard Pap's creampuffs are absolutely to die for. Perfect, creamy custard in a delicate creampuff shell. Amazingly delicious. Hard to eat just one.

Who knew a cream puff could be so darn tasty? I'm not a huge fan of cream puffs, but read an article about this place and happened upon it, so decided to partake. I opted for the classic vanilla custard cream puff. Wow! Ridiculously tasty....More

The place has a several cream puff varieties, however, on any given day only a selection of its full menu will be available. You can choose your puff pastry (classic or a cookie variety) and the filling (I chose caramel). It's right by the Yuerba...More

Forego dessert at whatever expensive restaurant you're dining at and head to Beard Papa's! More affordable and a great selection! There's cream puffs or Eclairs with different fillings. Scrumptious!

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

this neighbourhood home. Most of its freeway-sized
