Zoo Coffee | 주커피

Need I say more? The name speaks for itself. It’s a jungle in here!   I love this wildlife, amazonian concept. There are different animals and wildlife knick knacks in each Zoo Coffee house.   Found this chain coffee house on my walk to Yeouido and popped in for dessert! Tiramisu…my love.     OffContinue reading “Zoo Coffee | 주커피”

Deux Crèmes | 듀 크렘

Gangnam’s Garosugil is laden with patisseries, cake-shops, chocolatiers and coffeehouses. Deux Crèmes is one of the most popular and renowned pastry houses that occupies a standalone 3-storey building along the main street, drawing in a steady stream of dessert-seeking locals and foreigner everyday, and feeding this steady stream with their very special pie-tart-cake hybrids. Read: DeuxContinue reading “Deux Crèmes | 듀 크렘”

50 Fifty No Stress Cafe | 피프티

Reminiscent of a warehouse and appearing somewhat like a garage amidst reformation, the high-ceilinged 50 Fifty Cafe in uptown Apgujeong is hip and trendy with a rustic Junk-Style appeal. Diners can choose between smoking and non-smoking seating areas to enjoy a truly stress-free meal amongst the company of friends and tasteful lounge music. Kick backContinue reading “50 Fifty No Stress Cafe | 피프티”

Bloom and Goûté | 블룸 앤 구떼

“To see a World in a Grain of Sand And a Heaven in a Wild Flower.”  Nothing else better invokes purity of thoughts than innocence of youth. In this rustic foliage of greens and florals, William Blake’s Auguries of Innocence springs to mind. Off the beaten track on Gangnam-Gu’s Garosu-Gil is my favorite cafe by aContinue reading “Bloom and Goûté | 블룸 앤 구떼”

Coffee Chu | 커피츄

What’s good here? Blueberry and peanut churros! A churros specialty cafe  was exactly what I was keeping an eye out for. Opened by the CEO of Pledis Entertainment (Afterschool, NU’EST, Son Dambi), the cafe is decked out in signed paraphernalia from their artistes. If you’re looking for a particular cafe on Sinsa-dong, blink and youContinue reading “Coffee Chu | 커피츄”

A Twosome Place | 투썸플레이스

Exploring Apgujeong Rodeo Street led me to CGV Cinema at Sinsa-Dong, Gangnam-Gu. This dessert cafe used to be A Twosome Place by 51k, owned by actor So Ji Sub, until the 1st of January this year when this was turned into a normal Twosome Place cafe. Linked directly to the cinema, you can purchase coffee andContinue reading “A Twosome Place | 투썸플레이스”

Angel-In-Us Coffee | 엔제리너스커피

For the ultimate convenience I tamed my hunger with breakfast from Angel-In-Us Coffee! It’s one of those coffee-chain giants but not as common at every corner as Tom n Toms or Caffe Bene.   Had me some Honey and Cheese Thick Toast! And a Blueberry Smoothie.   엔제리너스커피 Hongdae xoxo, Viktoria Jean

Kona Beans | 코나빈스

Hot Chocolate before heading homewards – ain’t I glad Kona Beans Cafe (as well as many coffee chains along Hongdae) are open 24hrs to keep us well-fed on coffee and happiness. Kona Beans is heavy on the Hawaiian theme, considering they use a premium Hawaiian roast. There are actual trees in the middle of theContinue reading “Kona Beans | 코나빈스”
