85CBakeryCafe coming to Gardena

Saw a "opening soon" sign today for the 85CBakeryCafe at the plaza where the 99 Ranch Market is located on the Southeast corner of Normandie and Artesia. I can imagine how insane the parking will be once the bakery is opened. On a positive note, the bakery is less than 15 minutes away.

  1. Awesome!!! Live in the South Bay so no more driving to Irvine or Rowland Heights!!!

      1. Also Garden Grove at the Mall of Fortune.

        1. Okay... what should I get here? I've tried it several time and each time it was kinda 'meh'. Expecially for the Calorie expense.... I know it maybe apples to oranges, but, I prefer Paris Baguette...

            mochi egg tart
            danish cream
            bora cream
            calamari stick

            These are some of my favorite items, but I prefer Kee Wah to 85 Degrees. The mochi egg tart may be the single best thing they make and worth the calories.

              it's basically a macanese po-tart w/ some mochi inside

          2. I hope they don't end up like Fresh & Easy....

              they're basically a taiwanese porto's w/o the sandwiches - cafe + bakery w/ central distribution.

                Just me, but if they compare favorably with Porto's, then I'll save the kcals for Flour and Tea.
