Apgujeong Rodeo Brunch is a must when visiting Korea. The neighborhood frequented by K-celebrities is THE place for an upscale yet affordable afternoon. Here are some of the best brunch spots in this elegant Seoul neighborhood.
Any Occasion is the first Apgujeong Rodeo brunch cafe I’d like to recommend. The cafe, as the name suggests, is ideal for visiting at any time of day or night. What I like best about the cafe is the variety of menu options. However, I am particularly fond of their numerous bagel options. For about 4,000 won, you may taste delicious bagels in varieties like blueberry, onion, and jalapeno.
They also serve full brunch meals like mushroom and egg bagel sandwiches and salmon roe sandwiches at a reasonable price considering the amazing service and beautiful interior. Furthermore, if you’re not a huge bagel fan, there’s a seafood and wine bar in the basement.
Keep in mind that they offer early bird discounts on their bagels. If you order your bagels between 9:50 and 10:50 a.m., you will be able to receive a 10% discount. The only disadvantage would be that it only offers takeaway. However, if you want to build your own bagel sandwich at home, it is a complete bargain. I would strongly recommend this location to bagel lovers.
Operating Hours: They have 2 different operating hours. The first floor which is for brunch is from 10:50 am to 9:00 pm with the last order being at 8:20 pm. Their basement which offers seafood and wine is from 4:00 pm to 00:00 am.

Conte De Tulear
The next Apgujeong Rodeo brunch spot I’d like to recommend is rather distinctive. They not only serve a variety of foods and healthy drinks, but they also have a scent atelier. You could go shopping for some great candles and diffusers in addition to having brunch. It is one of the finest spots to get some natural cuisine, fresh beverages, and signature wine.
The menu includes a variety of coffees and teas, as well as nutritious freshly produced juices, kombuchas, and tasty small dish dinners. I was particularly taken with their one-of-a-kind maple soda.
However, I must confess that you must be conscientious of your time. Brunch is only served from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Afterwards they shift towards a natural wine bar. However, it is a great store to visit both in the afternoon and in the evening.
