Our June member drive is live: protect this resource!
Right now, we need your help during our short June member drive to keep the local news you read here every day going. This has been a challenging year, but with your help, we can get one step closer to closing our budget gap. Today, put a dollar value on the trustworthy reporting you rely on all year long. We can't hold those in power accountable and uplift voices from the community without your partnership.

Lovers of squid ink bread, egg tarts and taro pastries rejoice! An 85°C Bakery Cafe will be opening in downtown Los Angeles.The popular Taiwanese bakery and cafe will soon be setting up at the corner of Wilshire Boulevard and Hope Street, taking over the space of a recently departed Famima!! store. According to DTLA Rising, 85°C is expected to be open by June with at least two satellite locations within downtown also coming soon.

85°C has a dozen outposts throughout the greater L.A. area, but this marks their first expansion into Los Angeles itself. Long lines and mad rushes to get the freshest pastries fresh out of the oven are a common experience at each 85°C, and we wouldn't expect anything different at the new location, especially when it first opens.
