Beard Papa open yet? (YEG)

Does anybody know if it's open yet? We will be in Edmonton for the weekend and would like to try it out.

      I gave Beard Papa a try when I was Tokyo a few weeks back and the green tea cream puffs were pretty good. I will have to stop by WEM next time I'm in Edmonton.

      1. I went there last night. They only had two filling flavours, the original vanilla and mango. I thought they tasted good, but found the filling incredibly runny. It was not as thick as the cream puff filling I am used to, so it was a bit messy. Looking at the pictures on the website, even, I think it is supposed to be thicker, so they might still be perfecting it since they just opened this location.

          Yeah, it shouldn't be runny, more like thick custard. We found a Beard Papa in Hangzhou China of all places, and they had a double chocolate lava cake version. My husband is still smiling about it. Let's hope they get that one in.

        2. I went there Thursday and tried the vanilla filling, it was good but a little runny as others have mentioned. Also, it took a bit of investigation to find the shop as the directories in the mall aren't updated to show the shop location yet. It's behind the Body Shop near the Ice Rink.

            I can't believe I forgot all about this. I loved them in Waikiki and would make the trip up if they are ok there.

              I was kind of put off by the $3.00 price tag, I am sure I will eventually give in.
