Review

Atmosphere

When you enter, the first thing that you will see is the counter. There, you can find their menu displayed. And also, that is where you can get the list to do reservation.

As expected, this place is so popular that even some famous celebrities from South Korea have come. That is why there are some signatures there.

The cafe is really small. And that could be one of the main reasons to why there is always a long queque. As there are not enough tables. However, it is still quite cozy. I love the fact that there is a big window to let the outside light in.

At the back, they have a place where you can put your coat. So you do not have to carry it. I thought it was a nice touch.

Food

I ordered the brunch set. And let me tell you, it was completely worthy! It had me dancing from how delicious it was. Plus it was a big surprise to find out all the things that it include. For the price, I think it was fair!

Starting with the pancakes, they were fluffy and soft. That is why it felt satisfying to hit them with the fork and see how they bounce.

These, had an egg on the top. And there is not better view than cutting it in half and seeing how the yolk drips from the pancakes. Absolutely appetizing!

Plus it includes maple syrup, of course. Which combines really well with the egg as well.

I feel so excited when I saw all the things that are included in this dish! The salad has fresh ingredients. And a mushroom dressing that taste delish. It had plenty of fries as well. Which were perfect! The combination of softness and crunchiness was on point! And these were well seasoned. Plus they give you ketchup and mustard to dip them in.

As for the sausages, these were so tasty and juicy! I am not a big fan of sausages. But for some reason, I thought these were incredible.
