Does Beard Papas on Sawtelle Have their other flavors yet?
Last week, they still just had vanilla. Has anyone been lately?
I was there last night, just vanilla. They said green tea and strawberry maybe next week.
Dangerously good! and dangerously close to home!
I called yesterday to ask if they were serving the chocolate eclairs yet. The lady that answered said that If I told her what time I was coming in, she would have some chococlate eclairs ready. She sounded sincere but I did not take her up on her offer.
Call and ask if they will do it for you:

Yes, they had chocolate and vanilla a couple of days ago. I wonder why they were back to vanilla only yesterday? (And, to be a little contrarian, we didn't really like the chocolate all that much--OTOH the vanilla was pretty luscious--although the recent chocolate bar thread on the General Board established that everyone's chocky tastes are different.)
I had a chocolate one last night (about 9:15pm - after they had already 'closed' - apparently open and closed is not a binary condition at Beard Papas :) ).
I, too, was not that impressed with the chocolate filling. Not intense enough - and since the vanilla filling is so good, I see no reason to repeat the chocolate cream puff experiment. Now, when they start selling those chocolate truffle cakes I have read about, that's a different story.
Igi -- "...open and closed is not a binary condition..." -- WELL SAID! I have also noticed this, but couldn't have said it better!
I don't know how I could have missed those chocolate truffle cakes, because we have become well acquainted with several other Beard Papas. Do the other shops offer this chocolate cake as well? I guess this is a case of distraction...I just can't get beyond the vanilla cream puff!
