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…

Hoho Myoll Café @ Seoul, Korea

Folks, pay attention to this one alright! This café is by far the most impressive and most memorable one I’ve ever been to. If you’re intending to café-hop in Seoul, Hoho Myoll is one stop that you mustn’t miss. It is not located at any famous café streets; in fact the nearest ‘café’ from it was Danji….

Thanks Nature Café [Sheep Café] @ Hongdae, Seoul

Thanks Nature Café or much better known as the sheep café was at the top of my go-to list, simply due to my adoration for sheep! Furthermore, where else could you get a cuppa with 2 fluffy white sheep frolicking beside you? The café is located at the basement of a building, so if you’re not…

“Coffee-drinking Cat” Café @ Samcheongdong, Seoul

If you happen to be afraid of cats like myself, this is a reassurance that there’re no live furry animals in this café. On the other hand, if you’re cat lover, don’t go away just yet, ‘cos this is one café that is worth a visit. The inviting storefront stands out amongst the endless options at Samcheongdong, thanks to…

Danji Café @ Seoul, Korea

This café wasn’t on our to-go list but because we were wandering about the area for the longest time ever, nit-picking at every restaurant/café we walked by, that we got so tired we eventually settled on this cosy, family-run café. The restaurant space was really small – barely accommodating 15 people, so my best friend and I had…

The Hwawon @ Eight Seconds, Garosu-gil, Seoul [Korea Trip]

The beautiful facade, Holland-inspired, was the reason a second look was given. Its monotone design made the building stand out amidst the monotonous concrete two-storey buildings lined along the famous café street Garosu-gil. Even its name, Eight Seconds, instantly sounded magical (instead of ridiculous). Nestled behind huge potted plants is a café aptly named The…

Coco Bruni @ Garosu-gil, Seoul [Korea Trip]

Prominently located near the head of Garosu-gil street, Coco Bruni first caught my attention with its unique, fantasy-like logo design – that of a sparrow-riding girl. The wide and open entrances were inviting, as if drawing us in to further introduce “the messenger of a dream”. Clean white against cement floors. I loved the idea…

Café Waffle It Up @ Sinchon, Seoul [Korea Trip]

As promised, I’ll be sharing where you can find the best waffles in Seoul today! Opposite Mister Bossam Cafe, Waffle It Up is easily missed as it is located within an alley. A well-hidden gem, the cafe specialises in Belgium waffles and ice cream. A cosy space with brick walls and lots of wood.Yummy ice cream…

Mister Bossam Cafe @ Sinchon, Seoul [Korea Trip]

Near Ewha Womans University, there are many eateries and cafes that are extremely friendly to the wallet – think student-meal prices! I love Sinchon as it has my favourite waffles place (post next week) as well countless budget-friendly boutiques. We headed straight here on the first day and as it was around 10+am, many shops…

Bloom & Goûté Café @ Apgujeong, Seoul [Korea Trip]

Instead of walking along Garosu-gil (a straight road), we went into the small lanes linking from the main road and chanced upon another world. A flower and cake shop, Bloom & Goute was tucked away in a secluded corner and it’s unsurprising that many people would miss it. In fact, if you asked me for…

Café Oui @ Garosu-gil, Seoul [Korea Trip]

Seoul occupies a special place in my heart, having stayed there for an extended period (before this blog was started). I was very stoked when I planned for a trip back there last October. It is one capital that possesses a strong café culture, with streets and areas dedicated to cafés – not just any…
