Yesterday, the second day of our family in the Evergreen State, my brother took us to his favorite pastry shop, 85C Bakery Cafe.
85C got its name from its belief that coffee holds its flavor best at a steady temperature of 85 degrees Celsius. Its name is a statement of the cafe’s commitment to serving handcrafted coffee of the highest quality.
Each 85C store has its own in-shop bakery with a wide variety of pastries baked fresh every hour.
These pastries were the reason for our visit yesterday afternoon: the plan was to buy some of the store’s freshly baked goods for our breakfast the next day. Our loot included:
Milk Toast (USD3.00). A loaf with a fresh and natural milk taste.
Taro Puff Pastry (USD2.50). This puff pastry is light, flaky, and layered with delicious taro filling inside.
Milk Pudding (USD2.00). A traditional Japanese style soft bread with vanilla custard inside.
Garlic Cheese (USD2.00). A soft textured bread topped with our signature garlic spread, mozzarella cheese, and sprinkled with fresh parsley.
Cheese Dog (USD2.20). Soft bread wrapped around a hot dog, with cheddar & mozzarella cheese. Baked with ketchup, light mayo, black pepper and dry parsley.
Marble Taro (USD3.00). A sweet bread made with mixed grains and filled with signature taro filling.
This morning, I had the Milk Pudding and Taro Puff Pastry for my meal while I was enjoying the crisp morning air.
While it would be optimal to consume the pastries as soon as bought but they still tasted great with my morning coffee this morning.
