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
If you are anywhere near Sangsu station and craving some pie, just go to Zera’s Cafe aka Crazy Pie. The pie is fantastic, and you can get it with a scoop of ice cream. What more could you want?Roommate and I were wandering the streets while waiting for an appointment when we stumbled upon the…… Continue reading Zera’s Cafe | 제라스카페
Forever ago I visited this place and just realized I never posted about it! Which reminded me I should go back, as it’s an excellent little spot to study after class. Found on one of the many streets of Sinchon, this is one of those places you have to look up for… but the surrounding…… Continue reading 설레임커피 | Seolleim Coffee
Korea is getting into the craft beer thing, and Magpie is on top of everything from their beers to the food (pizza) to the atmosphere of their various locations. I’m actually not a beer person. I didn’t drink before coming to Korea, and Korea is not known for it’s beer (not that convenience store soju…… Continue reading Magpie Brewery
This cafe came up on lots of (Korean) blogs and looked so perfect, but I am lazy and kind of a hermit and took forever to stop by. It is pretty perfect though. From the outside, it seems tiny. Like some of the little takeout places with only a single table. It’s actually got lots…… Continue reading 안녕, 낯선사람 | Hello, Stranger
Argo is a coffee shop and also a small bottled beer shop. I come to this neighborhood a lot and am pretty sure I’ve been to this cafe more than any other cafe in Seoul.
I had actually walked by this place lots of times without paying attention to it, which is surprising because even just looking at it from the street you can see it’s super cool. As a person who doesn’t drink coffee beyond mochas, I don’t know anything about roasting or bean sources or whatever. If you…… Continue reading 백년커피 | 100 Year Coffee
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
This cafe is light & airy, hardly ever crowded, serves the best french fries (not usually the food I order at a cafe…), and is basically everything I want from a coffeeshop. It’s become my favorite place to study~ Honestly, I probably wouldn’t come here so often if it wasn’t so close to my neighborhood…… Continue reading 카페 비터스윗 | Cafe Bittersweet
This is where you can eat the famous Oreo bingsu. You know, the one in the Pyrex measuring cup that is/was all over instagram. They do have other items, like coffee & milkshakes, but the main reason to come here is definitely the giant Oreo bingsu.
