Papa Beard’s website says:

“Known as the baker of the “World’s Best Cream Puffs,” Beard Papa’s has been a household name since 1999 when we opened the first cream puff shop in Osaka, Japan pumping out this unique French choux dough puffs to happy people everywhere. Since that time, our mission has remained unchanged – to pursue uncompromising quality in everything we do. By remaining steadfast in our quality commitment, Beard Papa’s has spawned a devout following of loyalists who will attest that once you taste our cream puffs, you will agree, they are like no other.”

You can see their products here. Coming to DC this Spring.

Also interesting to note this space is another froyo casualty…

Fear not for the Hilton brothers – Chez Billy Sud expanding in Georgetown. Sounds pretty sweet too – the addition next door (across from the patio) will have a wine bar and a capacity of about 100. In addition to wine there will be sweet and savory crepes, charcuterie and a “sizable cocktail list”. It’s a place where you can “relax before or after dinner in the dining room” according to co-owner Ian Hilton. If all goes well it should open in early Fall.
