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….

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.

Even its name, Eight Seconds, instantly sounded magical (instead of ridiculous). Nestled behind huge potted plants is a café aptly named The…

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…

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…
