第一此到访韩国时，和友人借了哈韩达人丽仪的《Seoulful Living》，当中介绍了许多咖啡座。那时，我刚开始cafe hopping的小兴趣，但是由于行程相当满，当时没法到Bloom & Goute 走一趟。
Bloom & Goute 是花店与咖啡座的结合，到访的顾客除了买花、还可欣赏咖啡座里的插花摆设，顺便吃块蛋糕或喝上一杯咖啡，度过个悠闲的下午。
Flowers and cake cafe as it states, you get customers who come for the flowers as well as the food at Bloom and Goute.
Situated off the main Garosu-gil, you can get a little lost when you are trying to get to the cafe, but once you reach it, you have entered a world of lovely sleepy atmosphere, the type I like when I want an intimate and cosy catch up conversation with my friends.
Once you step in, you are greeted by a variety of cakes, calling out to you in that display fridge. Spoilt for choice I would say.
多种糕点，任君挑选 🙂 阵阵花香，扑鼻而来。
Hungry Joo wanted some savory goodness, explains why the lasagna was there. Fresh out from the oven, it was yums for the tums. Dessert was one of the freshest and lightest mille crepe I had, ever. I was actually craving for it in the next few days.
Although I couldn’t speak Korean, the staff made me feel at home with the prompt and friendly service.
Food was of reasonable quality // I really like the mille crepe though. Didn’t have space for another coffee, but I will definitely re-visit when I return to Seoul 🙂
Some other must tries include the croque monsieur or the eggs benedict.
I never fail to visit Garosu-gil quite a bit when I’m in Seoul as it really does have that al-fresco, espresso-sipping ambience you might find in Paris (but hey, I haven’t been to Paris at this point of time so maybe you guys out there who have been to both places can let me know if it’s actually accurate).
You can shop along the street which is lined with a mixture of indie stores and international brands.
Nearest train station: Sinsa, exit 8.
Walk a few blocks and take a left at J tower. Take another left at Olive Young, then another right at the first side street. When you pass Ikovox coffee to the right, it’s the next side street after to the right. (Walking directions provided by Seoul in the city )
