Upper West Side

Beard Papa's


2167 Broadway,
New York,
United States,

Decorated with a wall-hanging that reads, “Luscious tenderness and sweet compassion bring joy and contentment,” this bakery on the Upper West Side churns out fresh cream puffs every half-hour and fills them to order. Beard Papa’s menu ranges from the original cream puff, pumped up with vanilla custard and dusted with powdered sugar, to cheesecake sticks. The chain, which started in Japan, also serves mochi ice cream, a Japanese dessert featuring a thin, spongy rice cake wrapped around an ice cream centerm, with flavors including vanilla, strawberry, green tea, and espresso.
