Ok, so we were turned on, (once again) to a fresh bakery and this one has three locations in Irvine, so Irvine has all the luck. San Francisco-based Specialty’s Cafe & Bakery is a 20 year-old made-from-scratch concept, that just arrived in OC last year. Each Specialty Café sports an exhibition kitchen where they hand make sandwiches, soups and organic salads, and bake fresh daily breads, pastries, and cookies too.
The café and bakery also offers an online cutting-edge ordering service and quick delivery or pick-up service. And wow, you can track online exactly when cookies were brought out of the oven with their warm cookie radar at any location. (Eco-friendly packaging, the environment is so thankful.) And get this, for those of you that set up offices at coffee houses/bakeries, Specialty Café offers free Wi-Fi! Open 6 a.m. to 6 p.m.
Irvine locations at 2010 Main St. (at Gillette Avenue); 20 Pacifica (at Irvine Center Drive); 18400 Von Karman Ave. at Michelson Drive. 877.502.2837
