Foodiepink’s TOP 10 Must-Go Cafés in Seoul

I love Seoul for its café culture. It no longer boils down to the best cuppa, for me at least, but the story and character of a café that reveals what its owner may be. With dedicated café streets and countless awesome cafés in this dynamic metropolitan that retains its unique culture, I have put together my very first TOP 10 list of cafés that is worthy of your visit in Seoul – and yes, they are in order of ranking (purely to save you certain troubles) .

1) Hoho Myoll Café

Though a little out of the way, this café is by far the most impressive and most memorable one I’ve ever been to – both in terms of visual feast and tastebuds appeal.

93-44 Mapo-gu, Sangsu-dong


2) Café Oui

A 3-storey café with a full porch at the front, this café was oozing with coziness. It’s almost walking into a nursery room – for adults that is. The food here was just as excellent and comforting.

523-19 Sinsa-dong, Gangnam-gu


3) Bloom & Goûté Café

Where else would you find an overgrown garden brick house with a quiet café and florist within? You are promised to be blown away here.

4) “Coffee-drinking Cat” Café

First up, this has the best background and perfect lighting for your flawless selfie(s). Next, their waffles were extremely delicious, accompanied by creative beverages that are just as delicious.

5) Café Waffle It Up

I was here for the first time back in 2011. It still remained to be the best Belgium waffles I’ve ever had in my life (so do my friends say)!

6) Thanks Nature Café

Visit the mehmehs ‘cos happiness doesn’t come easier than this.

7) Yeon Traveler’s Hangout

Housed within a Hanok (traditional Korean house), this café is the epitome of modernity meets tradition. I came to know that this cosy space existed since 8 years ago, and yet the decor still exudes cosiness. In the main dining area, there’s even a fish tank sitting below the cashier. Really cool place to hangout at!

Yeon Traveler’s Hangout
63-20, Samcheong-dong, Jongno-gu


8) Coco Bruni

I personally prefer the tarts here to Deux Crèmes. I assure that you’ll get some high from the fluffy and lights clouds of aerated foam.

9) The Hwawon

Great for a pit stop in between shopping when you want to grab a drink and some free WIFI. And it doesn’t hurt that you’re being surrounded by some pretty blooms.

Garosu-gil, Seoul



Not exactly a café in the stricter sense, I decided to include DANJI in the list ‘cos I wished that all mums in the world could cook like this!
