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

    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.

      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...
