85°C Bakery Cafe inching closer to the Inland Empire

OK, Taiwanese chain 85°C Bakery Cafe isn’t in the Inland Empire yet, but they’re soon going to be just over the hill from us.

The third U.S. outlet will celebrate its grand opening at 1 p.m. Wednesday (December 19) at 2626 E. Garvey Ave. South, West Covina. There will be prizes and giveaways for guests in attendance.

Dine 909 has visited the Hacienda Heights location a couple of times and stocked up on delicious pastries and savory treats.

The chain is also known for its salted coffees and teas, which taste much better than they sound.

The stores themselves are kind of a mash-up of Starbucks, Porto’s and a panaderia.

The new location will be the largest of the three here in the U.S. (the other is in Irvine).
