This is the second Beard Papa that I have been to, so naturally a comparison is in order. The exterior is very similar, nice and crunchy on the outside, and light and airy on the inside. These cream puffs were a sorta flat, like a French pastry type of UFO. The pastry shell had an off taste though, sort of like rancid oil. The cream had a rather unpleasant gritty texture and not much flavor. Specks of vanilla bean could be discerned in the filling, however, I seriously doubt they used real vanilla beans while making the custard.
Overall, the cream puffs at this Beard Papa location was a huge disappointment.
