finally, they're in SF! – I missed beard papa cream puffs terribly when I moved to SF from NYC. They are divine, and reasonably priced b/c they are large cream puffs (not bite-size like western-style cream puffs are). I went yesterday & there was a line out the door an hour before closing. The manager kindly came out 30 mins before closing that he was making the last 2 batches, but it would take 25-30 mins before they were ready. He was honest, & genuinely apologetic for the wait. Maybe 5 (out of 30+) people left the line. That says a lot about these cream puffs. I must say, I've never waited so long for beard papa cream puffs, but maybe it was b/c I went so close to closing time. It is also a prime tourist location, so lots of traffic is to be expected.
Good puffs, service lacking – CONS:
- Price (6 vanilla puffs for $10 or 3 vanilla and 3 chocolate puffs for $11.10)
- Service can be extremely slow and they have screwed up my order a couple of times
- Parking is terrible in this area.
Other than that, the cream puffs are great... especially when eaten fresh.
