There's a "Coming Soon" sign up in Georgetown at 1336 Wisconsin Ave. NW for Beard Papa's, the cream puff chain that got its start in Japan and now has hundreds of locations internationally.
Eater reached out to a company spokeswoman, who confirmed the chain is arriving in D.C. later this year. They're looking to open in late April or early May.
Beard Papa's has several U.S. locations, the majority of which are in California. The menu shows items like green tea frosting doughnuts, cocoa puff cream puffs and almond eclairs. Locations tend to operate as franchises.
