Flash forward to today and there are several Beard Papa’s around the city, including one I visited recently which is more of a cafe style. Most of the Beard Papa’s I’ve been to were more grab-n-go style, so it was nice to actually sit somewhere clean and open to enjoy these treats.
The cafe serves cafe style drinks (cappuccinos, lattes), other desserts and sweets like waffles and of course their delicious cream puffs. You’ll find all the different flavours and toppings here that you would come to expect at any Beard Papa’s location.
We had their original cream puff and one topped with chocolate, their fondant au chocolat and I had a cappuccino.
The cream puffs were obviously my favourite part of this experience – still quite large and filled with the original vanilla custard. I also love having them with green tea and chocolate.
The Fondant Au Chocolat is a molten lava cake made with Belgian Callebaut chocolate – one of the world’s finest chocolate. It was a nice indulgent treat.
My cappuccino was large and was much lighter than I expected in terms of creaminess. It helped cut the sweetness of our desserts.
If you’re in Richmond and are craving some great cream puffs, I’d recommend checking out this cafe.
