A new bakery called 85°C will be coming to the Temple City Marketplace, in Temple City in the near future.
A company originating from Taiwan, 85°C boasts of high quality cakes, drinks, rolls, and bread at reasonable prices.
Their drinks include coffee brewed with premium coffee beans from Guatemala, teas, espressos, smoothies, and sea salt coffee, which is their trademark product.
85°C sells a variety of pastries such as cheesecakes, half-moon cakes, and tarts. Their 8-inch cakes are priced at around $30 while their pastries range from $1.50 to $5.00. The low cost and high quality of the food makes this cafe very popular in other neighboring areas.
According to their website, “All of [their] chefs have worked in five-star hotels, and have created each cake to uphold high culinary standards at affordable prices.”
85°C is very popular overseas and has over 320 locations throughout Taiwan.
According to the company’s history, the founder of the cafe, Wu Cheng-Hsueh, opened the first 85°C after entering a fancy restaurant and finding that the prices were too costly for average people. In July 2004, the first 85°C cafe opened in Taiwan and the franchise has spread rapidly ever since.
The name is based on the founder’s belief that 85°C is the ideal temperature to enjoy coffee.
The bakery is beginning to branch out into the United States and currently has two stores in California.
Their first store in California is located at the Diamond Jamboree Shopping Center in Irvine while the other is in Hacienda Heights.
According to yelp.com, both stores have generally long lines and good receptions from their customers.
