Croissants. Chocolate croissants. Cheese croissants. Sausage croissants. They make croissants here; and when they sell out, they close up shop. Since the shop opens at 1pm, people who have to work late might have a hard time getting their hands on a croissant from here. There wasn’t too much of a line when Roommate &…… Continue reading Old Croissant Factory | 올드크로와상팩토리
Like a much cozier version of the chain bakeries on every corner, Bread Lab has an assortment of pastries and drinks to enjoy while chatting with friends or studying. Located at one of the bigger intersections in this part of Yeonnam, Bread Lab would be easy to miss if it weren’t for their big…… Continue reading Bread Lab | 브레드랩
Another very late post… I saw Elie’s Pie while searching for dessert places on Dining Code and seeing as I could eat my weight in egg tarts, I knew I had to visit~ (And really, where could you go wrong with pie?) There are multiple locations (a fact I learned from the to-go box), but…… Continue reading 엘리스파이 | Elie’s Pie
I’m not entirely sure what kind of switch happened, but there used to be a bakery here and now there is combined bakery-cafe that does coffees and brunch plates. There’s still a lot of branding from the old bakery (which I had gotten breads from before), but this Bear’s Den cafe is equally, if not…… Continue reading 베어스덴 | Bear’s Den

The other times I’ve stopped by here were just to pick up some baked goods (if I’m going to study…… Continue reading 듀꼬뱅 | Deux Copains

This little bakery doesn’t have shelves & shelves of offerings, but what they do sell is delicious~ This whole street is filled with cute little restaurants & a few…… Continue reading 스프링베이커리 | Spring Bakery
I semi-frequently end up here even though it’s not my favorite… I can’t really put my finger on what I dislike, so the good points win out! The prices are decent for what you get, the cakes are yummy, and there are lots of tables for hanging out with friends or study. Cafe DZ is…… Continue reading 카페디지 | Cafe DZ
Baked goods on the first floor, restaurant on the second floor, a cafe space to chat with friends on the 3rd floor. This is a good spot to meet up or sit alone any time of day. I don’t really think of it as a chain, but there is another location in Myeongdong.
Strawberry cream bread, salted cream bread, passion fruit cream bread, matcha cream bread, red bean cream bread…Cream bread is a staple of Korean bakeries, but this place is another level~ It took me 3 tries before I was able to even taste it because I kept going at night and they were already sold out.
