International Drive – Prime Outlet Mall
The story of Beard Papa’s begins across the world in Osaka, Japan where in 1999 baker Yuji Hirota began pumping out these unique custard creme pastry puffs. It has since expanded all over the globe from China to Australia to Singapore to now, the United States. Right here in our own backyard at the newly renovated Prime Outlet Mall at the northern end of International Drive lays Beard Papa’s, waiting to offer you their much touted fresh n’ natural creme puffs.

Once inside, you will notice that you are able to order the pastries by first picking the shell: either original, chocolate eclair, or cookie crusts. Then order the filling which can either be vanilla custard, dark chocolate, or a original flavor that changes from time to time. In the past these flavors have been strawberry, mango, coconut, green tea, etc. Call ahead to find out.
The pastry puff shells are two-layered: a crispy outer layer and a soft pastry layer inside.
They also use whipped creme to blend with vanilla bean to make their vanilla custard.
The creme puffs do not contain any preservatives so its best to eat right there or refrigerate immediately at home.
The crispy shell pairs well with the creme-y texture of the vanilla custard.
Mochi in the Display!
The delightful creamy custard overflows from the pastry with every bite,
a chilly oozing gooeyness on your tongue.
