What’s your Specialty?

In today’s fast paced age of convenience, it is rare to find a multi-unit café that values true, handmade quality above all else and with Specialty’s Café & Bakery that is exactly what you will find. 

The legendary company that first opened its doors in San Francisco has made its way down to Southern California. With the first Specialty’s stores now open at 20 Pacifica at Irvine Center Drive and 18400 Von Karmen in the Irvine Towers at Michelson Drive, Orange County is now able to enjoy one of the best kept secrets around.

Specialty’s Café & Bakery still adheres to the same traditional, made-from-scratch philosophy that successfully launched the company over 20 years ago and continues today with the cult-like following of their award-winning sandwiches, organic salads and famous cookies and baked goods.

The comfortable and relaxing atmosphere at the two Irvine locations offer free internet access, a large outdoor patio, self-serve kiosks, and with their coffee/espresso partner, Peet’s Coffee & Tea, there is a full range of hot, iced and blended Peet’s beverages that will perfectly complement any Specialty’s meal.

The Specialty’s concept takes things even further with their eco-friendly packaging and utensils; cutting-edge online ordering system that is unmatched in the industry; broad catering menu that features fresh, wholesome options for breakfast, lunch and afternoon meetings and events; and convenient same day pick-up and delivery service that is offered throughout Irvine.

Simply, Specialty’s makes it easy to enjoy their award-winning, made-from-scratch menu anytime, anywhere and is clearly a welcomed addition to the Orange County community.
