Sunmerry Bakery / Irvine, CA

After we ate yummy noodles at A&J Restaurant, we headed next door to Sunmerry Bakery. It’s a Taiwanese bakery similar to 85c Bakery.

Sunmerry Bakery isn’t a large shop but there were plenty of baked goods to look at!

I wish I got a green onion bun to try in hindsight. It looks tasty!

A lot of these look similar to items I’m familiar with from 85c Bakery.

Egg Tarts at Sunmerry Bakery - Irvine, CA

They had two kinds of egg tarts here – this was just called “egg tarts” and there was another tray that was labeled “Portuguese Egg Tarts”. I only grabbed these. 

Little Cakes at Sunmerry Bakery - Irvine, CA

These cute little cakes had no label so I’m not sure what they are called. 

Breads at Sunmerry Bakery - Irvine, CA

There were a bunch of bags of bread with the tops open – they looked like they were freshly bagged!

This is part of what I grabbed. That thing on the left is a Taro bread. I also got a chicken bun bread thing that I gave to Jake, a bag of bread rolls, some blueberry scones for my mom, and a cookie bread thing (which I never took a photo of for some reason). 

tiger-cake

I ate this one in the car! The texture/flavor reminded me of angel food cake. It was quite light and airy with a just a bit of sweetness. 

creamy-middle-cake

In the middle of the little cake was some tasty vanilla pastry cream. Yum! 

milk-tea

Jake got a milk tea with taro balls and half sugar. It was not bad but not my favorite milk tea ever. The flavor was okay. The taro balls tasted a bit different from the boba we’re used to – they were much smaller and had a different chew/flavor. 

chocolate-croissant

I took this gigantic chocolate croissant that I got from Sunmerry Bakery with me to work the following day. Maybe it was because I waited a day to eat it but it tasted pretty dried out. It didn’t have the flaky, buttery layers I was hoping for. There was a pretty good amount of chocolate though so it gets a few brownie points for that! It kind of felt like having dessert for breakfast. 

I shared the egg tarts with my co-workers and we all agreed that the egg tarts were underbaked. The shell was pretty soft (I know it was the next day that I ate it but it seemed EXTRA soft, like “I wasn’t baked enough” soft) and the egg tart itself was just okay. I wouldn’t want to eat them from here again, sadly.

I used one of the bread rolls I got for some sliders later in the week and that bread was really good. Soft and buttery! Jake totally ADORED the chicken bread thing I got for him and I was sad I didn’t get to try it – but I was happy that he loved it. I was overall unimpressed with the items we got but if Jake liked the savory bread that much I’d go back just to try one. Maybe I just got all the wrong things!

    1. Hi CC – Yeah… dry croissants are a bummer. I bet there are more bakeries in the OC/LA area, just gotta find them 🙂 I remember going to Pangea, too!
