Forget the economic downturn -- it seems as though chocolate and dessert are the new "me" indulgences to defend us from sorrow.
The first 85 Degrees Cake Shop opened in Sydney just over two years ago. Its
The reference to 85 degrees in its name refers to research which indicates that 85C is the ideal temperature for drinking coffee. It's also the ideal temperature for brewing Taiwainese tea.
With its Taiwainese origins, the cakes here have a definite leaning to an "Asian palate" - soft, airy sponge cakes with plenty of cream and colorful garnishes of fruit or chocolate. The descriptions have an air of Chinglish about them, but they are written with such earnestness, one can't help but smile.

Hokkaido cheese $3.60
White chocolate puff base and mix with Hokkaido milk cheese
prevails a strong and irresistible odors of milk and cheese,
which you will never forget...
We stopped by on a Sunday night, pleased to have such a wide selection of desserts for very reasonable prices. Outdoor seating is available on sturdy wooden tables and brown leather-look dining chairs, the type of furniture you'd expect to find inside a restaurant and not set up on the pavement on the street.
At the George Street outlet, I usually have the Hokkaido cheese, a feather-light dome of fluffy milky cheesecake that encases a small ball of mochi. The version here is different with a crunchy biscuit inside that is a bit like a malted milk ball. I miss the mochi.
Brown sugar square $1.60
85C signature brown sugar cake elaborately made with
Okinawa brown sugar
I'm inexplicably drawn to the brown sugar square and I'm so glad I was. The cake is dense and a little bit chewy in a way that reminds me of my grandma's Chinese steamed golden sponge. The use of brown sugar lends a slight toffee flavour and the glazed crust is perfectly offset by the generous sprinkle of sesame seeds.
Vanilla butter cream cookies $3.20
Jane Doe shares around the vanilla butter cream cookies and these are great. Like a cross between a meringue and a sponge cake, the crust is sugary sweet with a fluffy cakey middle.
It's sugar and cakes all around for six sweet tooths. There's not a frown in sight. Just silence and the occasional sigh.
