“What's not to love”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 19, 2014

I am still drooling IT. WAS. DELICIOUS. I. CAN. EAT. THIS. PLACE. Yes, yes, bread is awesome. One tip about the sea salt coffee don't even bother with the smaller size as half of it is a delicious foam that you'll want to open up and spoon into your mouth. So get the larger size if you are serious about your caffeine.

“Fresh and Delicious”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 13, 2014

I went to 85 degrees on my last trip to LA and I was really amazed at the amount of people waiting to go in for a snack. The items were fresh and delicious. I picked 2 items - Taro Bread and Egg Tarts and they were both amazing. I came here almost everyday during my 4 day trip to Irvine and I would recommend this bakery to anyone wanting a snack. The lines are however out the door but it does move fast.

“Only worth it if no wait”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 8, 2014

I never understood the hype around 85C. They certainly have some decent pastries but nothing really justify a crazy long wait. The taro bun came close but not close enough. The sea salt coffee is only appealing to bubble tea drinkers. Any semi serious coffee lover would not be completely satisfied with this creamy sugary coffee drink.

If you grow up being spoiled by wonderful European patisseries you will laugh at the people lining up for 85C. However, if you manage to come here at an odd hour to quickly snatch up some pastries with little to no wait, you won't be too disappointed.

“Always crowded”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 3, 2014 via mobile

Tried it for the first time and can't wait to go back and try more of their food. Prices are pretty good, and at the end the wait in line is worth it. Pastries go out pretty quick so fresher ones constantly come out.

“Fresh and wonderful”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 30, 2013

we were delighted with the freshness and fabulous taste sensations that we got from 85 Degrees. there was a line but it moved so quickly and there were always fresh and fresher items being brought out for us to try - there was just not enough time and the prices were fabulous - from sweet to savory you will definitely be in for a treat!
