Our Story

85c Bakery Cafe


Bakery Cafe was founded with the philosophy of 5-star quality at affordable prices.

One afternoon a few years ago in Taiwan, the founder of Bakery Cafe, Mr. Wu Cheng-Hsueh took a group of business associates to a cafe in a local five-star hotel to celebrate their success. Peering through the window, he saw that people outside of the cafe were busy and rushed, whereas the patrons inside the cafe were having a relaxed moment enjoying gourmet deserts and drinks. Upon opening the menu, he realized the fact that the prices were set way too high for ordinary people to enjoy on a whim. At that moment, Mr. Wu envisioned a cafe that provides five-star quality coffee, cakes and breads at not so five-star prices. Thus Bakery Cafe’s journey begins…

The first Bakery Cafe was opened in Taipei, Taiwan in 2004. We currently have over 800 stores in Taiwan, China, Australia, Hong Kong, and the U.S.A.

Brand Origins

We believe that coffee holds its flavor best at a steady temperature of 85 degrees Celsius. To us, the name symbolizes our devotion to provide coffee of the highest quality. We hope to give our customers the best drink possible by paying careful attention to every detail which may affect its taste. Of course, our goal of perfection extends to all of our products, not just our coffee.
