Orange International Street Fair ~ Sweet On Summer 2013 ~ Orange

“Every Labor Day weekend for the past three decades, the Orange International Street FairSM (OISF) in downtown Orange has been the place where friends, families and neighbors get together to experience a wide variety of food, music and dance from cultures and ethnicities throughout the world.

Whether it’s Philly Cheese Steaks, Italian Sausages or Greek Loukoumades, the Street Fair never fails to tantalize the taste buds of the half million Fair goers every year. The theme for 2013 is ” Sweet on Summer at the Plaza!!”. The Orange International Street Fair has served millions and remains a mainstay in Orange for over 41 years.

What you may not know is that every dime of the profits from the Street Fair goes to non-profit charities that help people in our community. More than fifty organizations dedicated to serving people in Orange and surrounding communities rely on the Orange International Street FairSM as one of their biggest fundraisers of the year.” – OISF

85° Bakery Cafe ~ Irvine


85°C Bakery Cafe ~ 2700 Alton Parkway ~ Irvine

At 85°C Bakery Cafe you can choose at your own pace from a super stocked assortment of baked goods. Take a tray and pincer and help yourself to whatever you please for picnic outings, office coffee counter runs or low & high tea snacks. Well labeled breads, hybrid sandwich treats and sweets disappear and reappear as the shelves are re-stocked fresh from the oven. A lot of food here reads and often tastes like desert. At another café counter the hard working and good humored staff serve fruit blends, caffeine drinks, and sit down fare like cakes and yogurts. The music is light, the room is sunny, the air is as fresh as a bakery.
