Move on over macarons, 'cause there's a new sweet trend in town. Crispy, light pastry shells filled with a myriad of different flavoured creams - yes, we are talking cream puffs.
Beta5 Chocolates is a locally owned contemporary and innovative chocolate and pastry shop located in Strathcona at 413 Industrial Avenue. Named as one of North America's Top 10 Chocolatiers, you can actually find their chocolate at a bunch of retailers around town.
Although Beta5 Chocolate specialises in, you guessed it, chocolates, you may have seen their cream puffs popping up on your Instagram feed. With good reason too, with their gorgeous handmade pastries being as picture perfect as they are!
With flavours ranging from salted caramel, raspberry-earl grey, lychee-rose, Vietnamese coffee, matcha, and many more, it's hard to turn your back on these scrumptious treats. We have a feeling even those without a sweet tooth will find a flavour they will enjoy.
Be sure to get in early because they have been known to sell out of their cream puffs! Alternatively, you can pre-order online before 1 PM for same-day pickup. Beta5 Chocolate's hours are 10:30 AM till 5 PM from Tuesday - Friday and 10 AM till 5 PM on weekends (closed on Mondays).
