Little Cylee and I were shopping for Salvation Army Angel Tree gifts one day and I thought it’d be nice to reward her with desserts somewhere for taking time out of her extremely busy day being a 5 year old to shop for others. Tough life she has……….
I called around and so many places just happened to be closed. I google searched desserts in Wichita and came across one place called Beard Papa’s. I had never heard of it and they were inside Towne East Mall. I asked Cylee if she wanted to participate in a new blog review. With a confused look, she responded with, “Blog????” Sounded like a yes to me so we went.
Beard Papa’s is located at 7700 E Kellogg Dr inside Towne East Mall near the Men’s Wearhouse entrance.
According to Wikipedia:
Beard Papa’s is an international chain of cream puff stores started in Japan by the company Muginoho Co., Ltd. Their slogan is “Fresh and natural cream puffs”. Beard Papa’s has over 250 stores in Japan and 300 worldwide.
When Cylee and I first arrived our eyes focused immediately on these colored pastry balls.
My favorite thing to do when watching any of the kids in my family is to load them up with sugar and send them back to their parents. So we went back and ordered dessert there. Many people who were ordering at Beard Papa’s nearly all got Cream Puffs.
We followed the crowd and ordered one as well. They make their cream puffs on site for you to watch.
To be honest, I didn’t get a single bite in on a cream puff. It was all Cylee doing the hard work of sampling the Cream Puff to get the full review. By the end of her dessert, powder was all over her face, crumbs all over her clothes, and vanilla cream surrounding her mouth. I asked what she thought. She looked at me with this face of someone who had just ran a marathon and said, “Very good, can I go home now? I’m tired.” It was essentially the face I have every time I finished eating at Sweet Basil’s lunch buffet which I love. So in kids speak, I’m guessing she loved it.
