The Filipino flavors of use come to life at the new Cafe 86, a Pasadena, California-based tea, coffee, and dessert shop from James and Ginger Dimapasok now open in Spring Valley.

The cafe with locations in Chino and Artesia, California, takes over a 2,262-square-foot space at the intersection of Jones Boulevard and Russell Road in the Spanish Palms plaza, close to Mr. Mamas.

The menu features a roster of purple-hued treats made with ube, a root vegetable similar to a yam. Cafe 86 uses the ingredient to create a vibrant Halo-Halo bread pudding, plus ube Pop Tarts, ice cream, pies, and the breakout hit, leche flan cupcakes, large enough to balance a mini flan on top.
