Oakland, California (EastBayDaily) — Bambu Desserts & Drinks, the renowned San Francisco Bay Area Vietnamese coffee and dessert drinks chain announces the grand opening of its first of three shoppes opening in the East Bay in 2013. “We are completely thrilled that we now have a presence in the East Bay,” said Kelly Nguyen, co-founder of Bambu Desserts & Drinks, Inc. “This hip, modern new shoppe design has been a long awaited treat for Oakland. We continue to be amazed that our Vietnamese inspired chè is being enjoyed by so many people across the Bay.”

Bambu Oakland officially opened its doors on June 8th. Its regular hours are Wednesday through Sunday from 8:00 am to 6:00 pm. Since its doors have opened, the unique coffee and dessert shoppe has been busy non-stop serving the entire East Bay. “The turnout has been amazing and we’re extremely excited to bring this amazing chè to the Oakland,” said Thu Anh Nguyen, owner of Bambu-Oakland. “Bambu is special and something that our community really needed. Seeing customers standing and waiting in line to taste one of our 97 different items is really exciting.”
