The hearts of many students sank when Golden Spoon left the food hub of El Modena. But soon enough a new bakery proudly opened its doors in its place.

On March 16, 85° began their soft opening. Students from all around Orange flocked to review the new bakery. It’s competition includes Dragonfly Tea Bar, Starbucks, and Kavacha.

Junior Katelyn Nguyen says, “The atmosphere there is really nice and I think it’s better than Dragonfly.” She recommends the garlic french bread, commenting, “It’s absolutely delicious.” Cabinets full of pastries line the walls; a few are even refrigerated. All you need to do is pick up a tray and a pair of tongs and find what captures your attention.

85° offers a variety of drinks to choose from, including sea salt coffee, guava slush, and even banana hot chocolate. Junior Nicole Do advises everyone to try the Rose Milk Tea and Marble Taro Bread. She says, “85° is definitely a good addition.”

The Grand Opening happened at 9 o’clock in the morning on Friday, March 30. Now, 85° is open for good. Junior Matthew Tu said, “It looked pretty nice on the inside.”

Sophomore Hanna Zorilla agreed, and added, “The pastries and boba were really good. I’ve been to the other ones and this one met my expectations.” There are a few tables and chairs inside to sit down at and endulge, although they are usually occupied due to the bakery’s popularity. Don’t worry; to-go is also an option.

For those looking for a job, 85° is hiring. Unfortunately, the age restriction is 18 and above and high school diploma is required. But after graduation, seniors are eligible to apply for a part-time or full-time job.

Whether you’re looking for a few pastries to pick up for a party or a new place to go with friends, be sure to check out 85°.
