What's the Bakery like 85C in Arcadia/SanMarino area?

Amidst all the flurry of hype about the second US branch of 85C in Hacienda Hts.,, I remembered that while wandering in the SGV one weekend in the last year or so, with the Woman In The Hat, we'd ended up at a bakery/coffee place that had, among other things, taro rolls and squid-ink-cheese bread. Can anyone ID it for me?

  1. Possibly JJ Bakery in Arcadia, in the same plaza as (the older side of) Din Tai Fung? We picked up some date/egg mooncakes there the other day that were outstanding...

    1. Cloverleaf in Temple City perhaps?

      1. Chiffon De Pasty (sic) Art next to the bowling alley on Baldwin Ave. in Arcadia has taro rolls comparable to those at 85°C Café.

          N.B. I think "Pasty" is just a misspelling on some of their packaging. It's "Pastry" on the sign:

          . . . as well as in the Food Facility Rating database.

            I think the business card says Pasty, too.

            If you are just talking taro rolls, I think the ones at Cloverleaf are mighty fine.

          3. Crystaw got it; per the Woman In The Hat's viewing of the pic on the Yelp review, it was indeed Cloverleaf...
