International Japanese bakery chain Beard Papa’s is opening its second Austin next year. It’ll be found within the H Mart in Lakeline on 11301 Lakeline Boulevard. The bakery plans on opening in early 2024.
The star of Beard Papa’s menu is the cream puff. The choux pastry puff filled with cream and custard. Shell flavors include chocolate eclair, vanilla, s’mores, and churro. Then there are fillings like vanilla bean, chocolate, and green tea. There are also non-puff items like creme brulees, chocolate or ube fondants, and Japanese puddings. There are also milk teas such as taro, matcha, and brown sugar.
Reddit reports that this Beard Papa’s is taking over what had been Snowy Village Dessert Cafe’s space within H Mart’s food court.
When this H Mart Austin location does open, it plans on hosting an opening special where the first 100 people will get gifts, plus there will be other specials. Hours will be announced later.
Beard Papa’s opened its first Austin location in the Domain in April 2021, with the goal of opening a second one somewhere in the city. The company was founded in 1999 by Yuji Hirota in Japan, and it expanded with locations across the world.
