Scoop From TonyC--85°C Café Opening Branch in Hacienda Heights This Summer

Chandavkl | May 26, 2011 03:03 PM

Since they opened their Irvine store a little over two years ago I've wondered why 85°C Café hadn't also established a foothold in the San Gabriel Valley. When they first opened there were literally lines out the door of people just waiting for the privilege of purchasing their baked goods. Since I don't get to Irvine that often I figured I better wait in line too, even though I don't believe in lining up for food. At the time I thought the line-up was due to looky loos wanting to try out the new bakery, and that things would eventually settle down. Wrong. To this day there's a continuous line of people waiting to get into 85°C. Now as far as the lack of a SGV branch goes, I guessed perhaps they didn't want to pay for the traffic control that would be necessitated by a SGV location, but I guess they were just biding their time. The corner of Azusa and Colima is going to be very very congested in a couple of months.
