Beard Papas...coming to Sawtelle TOMORROW

The Japanese cream puff chain is opening tomorrow, July 1st, at 10:00 AM at 2130 Sawtelle, Suite 110. I am told that it will be next to the market, but I am not sure which market: Nijiya or the other one closer to Hide Sushi????

  1. So THAT is what was happening there! Thanks for the heads up! WHOO HOO!! :)

    ETA: PayorPlay and I a few weeks ago were musing over the closure and seemly complete remodel of Mousse Fantasy right next to Nijiya market.

          Do you think it is going into the Mousse Fantasy space? Is 2130 -- Suite 11 -- that address? I really thought Mousse Fantasy was returning anew?????

          1. re: liu

            It is just a wild guess, but I think a safe one (sadly their website says nothing about the Sawtelle opening). The space is the perfect size and the wrap up job they had going in there is almost as if they were trying to hide something (And then that weird L.A. City note which is why I took note of how severe everything looked).

            But of course, we'll find out tomorrow! Whoo Hoo!! :)

              I just checked yp.yahoo.com, and Nijiya's address is 2130 #105. So Beard Papa's gotta be in the same complex. I can't think of another empty space other than Mousse Fantasy.

      2. Speaking of Beard Papas, can an anyone tell me exactly where the one on Highland is located? Do I need to actually park and enter the Hollywood/Highland complex to find it? (Yeah, and I wouldn't be so damn lazy if I could lay off the cream puffs...)

          It's at the VERY front of the building right by the big elephant stairs, right underneath the Sephora. Sadly, you do have to park in the complex, or do what we did a bit ago, do the drop off and circle the block (They aren't NEARLY as busy as they have been in the past)

            From Hollywood Blvd, walk up the staircase directly across from the El Capitan Theater.

            1. YIPPEE!!! Thanks for letting us know. That's right by my car place. Now I gotta find more reasons to take my car in.

              1. There's one opening sometime in the same shopping center as Mei Long Village in San Gabriel.

                  Yes! This one use to be a tea place that I liked a lot (great lychee bits in their green tea!), but when we peeked in last weekend, nothing had moved! I suspect they will be awhile yet in making the change.
