I love cafes, coffee and cakes.
Seoul’s the perfect place for cafe hoppers like me as it’s littered with both chain and indie cafes.
Finding Jiyugaoka (Jiyūgaoka is one of my fave places in Tokyo too~~) in Seoul, was a blessing on a dreary Sunday morning.
It was pretty peaceful when I got in, a table of two friends were having their coffee.
Sat down at a corner and watched the world go by.

I was there for Strawberry Shortcake, but apparently it’s seasonal, hence I got the staff to recommend
Although the lady had a little trouble with speaking English, she tried her best and here’s what I ordered.
The Mille cake was light, fluffy and comforting. Melted in my mouth, and went well with the swirls of caramel at the side. Lovely 🙂
It got a little busier after church service ended (there was a church nearby I think). A group of ladies came in for coffee. Another family of three came in for cakes. The little corner cafe filled up quickly as there are probably less than 20 seats in the place .
Insadong’s nearby, so it’s a nice spot to stop by for a break. I love the atmosphere
Walk down from exit 1 from Anguk station.
