Does anyone know if the 85 C Tea House is the same branch as the popular 85 C cafes in Taiwan?

    People say that it is but I don't know that for a fact.

      I've read this on a blog somewhere as well - about it being rumored. Whatever the case, I'm definitely stopping by next time...

      I think its a knock-off. Logo is different. Real one just opened in Irvine. Its call 85C Bakery and Cafe, not Tea House. The SGV location not listed on the corporate website:

        Yes, as one of the Hounds reported, the Valley Bl. location renamed itself Cha House after they were exposed as being fake by the opening of the real thing in Irvine.
