85C Bakery Cafe, a popular Taiwanese bakery with several chain locations throughout California, recently opened a store in Mira Mesa! On the grand opening day last Friday, I was invited for a sneak preview an hour before the official opening.
There was a table being set up with some breads for us to sample. I walked around and took some pics of the bread cases, which were being filled with fresh bread to prepare for the opening day crowd.
I admit, my favorite part of 85C Bakery is the cakes! The tiramisu and mango mousse are my favorites, but I’ve pretty much enjoyed most of the cakes that I’ve tried.
We heard a short presentation about 85C’s company culture. They definitely express a lot of enthusiasm for bread, cake, and customer service!

We were also invited to sample some of the most popular breads!
I had some of the Giant Boroh (2nd photo) and Coconut Twist (not pictured, unfortunately), both of which I haven’t tried before but were yummy and definitely super fresh! The Giant Boroh bread might be one of my new favorites.
Lastly, we were treated to a complimentary drink – I picked the famous sea salt coffee, pictured next to friend’s milk green tea with boba:
It was really cool to see that I had drink order #2! Dennis from Oh-So Yummy had the honor of drink order #1:
It was really great to check out the new 85C Bakery store in Mira Mesa. There was a pretty sizable line outside for the grand opening by the time I left, though it didn’t look as crazy as the 4-hour line for the first location‘s grand opening on Balboa Ave. I am definitely glad for the expansion in San Diego – in fact, there is another store opening soon in National City! Hooray for more “fresh bread”!
