3 brunch spots in Seoul

Seoul is full of unique cafes and brunch places, from chains to authentic places. As you scroll through the brunch hashtag, you can find plenty of them which makes it hard to choose an ideal location.

But don’t worry, i got your back. Here are 3 brunch spots that i visited and recommend.

Urban Plant

Located in Hapjeong and is a bit hard to find ( refer to the map below). As the name states, the place is filled with plants which exudes a healthy and natural vibe.

Their menu has a mix of healthy options such as salads, sandwiches, and omelettes. As well as deserts and coffee.

I tried their signature omelette and let me tell you it looks so perfect and so fluffy. It’s so cheesy and has pesto inside: Chef’s kiss combined with sour cream, salad and sour bread.

My friend took their special Beef stew it reminded me of the French boeuf bourguignon. It comes with puree, omelet, salad and sour dough.

They have different seating options, the place is a villa and has a terrace as well as upstairs and downstairs.

To get there take the subway to Hapjeong Station (line 2 & 6) and come out of exit 7. Come out of the exit and walk straight. Walk until you reach the third turning on the right. You will see Urban Plant on the left side.

Grain brunch

Located far from the busy streets of Hongdae, this place is located in the middle of Yeonnam-dong.

Grain is a brunch place that offers Nordic and Danish style breakfasts in which you can choose your own ingredients. Their Nordic breakfast tray carries 5 tiny plates with scrambled egg, avocado, sausage, homemade yogurt with fruit, smoked salmon, and their special bread so that you can even make a breakfast sandwich.

I love the atmosphere, the brunch place is located in a calm area and it has a European vibe to it. The food is healthy and varied, i really appreciated the fact that i can choose my own brunch ingredients~

Address:385-6 Yeonnam-dong, Mapo-gu, Seoul, South Korea

Take the subway to Hongik university, exit 3 walk in the streets of Yeonnamdong.

Summer Lane

How about an Aussie brunch?

This place is located in Hannam and serves Australian style Brunch.

They have many appetizing options on their menu, so it was hard to choose. I tried their avocado waffle. I am used to having waffles sweet, i was pleasantly surprised.

They also have other variations of waffles: bacon, egg benedict, salmon or mushroom. As well as salads, open sandwiches, granola bowl and a selection of mouth watering deserts.

To get there take a train to Hanggangjin station (line 6) and come out of exit 3. Walk straight and cross the street . Then take a left at the Bun Cha place. At the next intersection take another left, and then keep walking down that street, Summer Lane will be just up ahead on the left hand side.

They are open from 8:30am – 8:00 pm everyday except Mondays when they are closed.

Hope you liked this selection, let me know in the comments if you visited any of them ~
