108 North State St., Chicago, IL 60602, United States

Light and crispy on the outside, rich and silky on the inside, the famously decadent cream puffs sold at Beard Papa’s are as close to puff perfection as it gets in the Windy City. An offshoot of the original Beard Papa’s, which opened in Osaka, Japan in 1999, this Loop sweet shop is just three blocks west of Millennium Park. The freshly baked cream puffs come in flavors like original vanilla bean, fresh strawberry, European chocolate, and dark-chocolate-dipped éclair. If a cooler treat is required, try a handful or two of their Mochis, bite-sized rice cakes filled with vanilla, strawberry, green tea, or espresso ice cream.
