Do you get tired of going to the same few locations and want to try something new? I’ve got you covered! From cafes to yummy sandwiches, here are some of the best trendy new places in Seoul this spring.
Loner is the first store I’d like to mention. It’s a cross between a brunch cafe and a coffee shop. It is clear from the name that this is one of the stores that is perfect to visit even if you are alone.
The stunning simple interior design is what I enjoy best about the store. The seats and kitchen furniture pieces reminded me heavily of the antique American family homes. Another thing I enjoyed was that, although visiting alone, I felt completely at ease.
If you get the chance to visit, I highly recommend that you try their brunch menu items such as chicken soup, sourdough sandwiches, and croissant sandwich plates. This is because, while I was there, I noticed that the majority of the customers were only there for the beverages, and I wished that more people would try the brunches.
Loner (로너) Address: 222 Noksapyeongdae-Ro, Yongsan-Gu, Seoul Korean address: 서울 용산구 녹사평대로 222 Operating Hours: 10:00 AM - 08:00 PM Closed: Mondays
The second store I would like to introduce is Orange District. I believe it is the dream location for car enthusiasts to visit.
This is because of the fact that the aesthetic space, which is a cafe and wine bar, was designed by BMW vehicle designers. The one-of-a-kind interior design and furnishings make the space feel like an exquisite gallery.
While you’re there I would recommend you try their trademark menu items, such as their omija ade, excellent latte, and desserts such as orange pound cake and orange chocolate croissant. Despite its opulence, the menu is reasonably priced, making it suitable for university students who like going to coffee shops.
Loner (로너) Address: 132 Saemal-Ro, Songpa-Gu, Seoul Korean address: 서울 송파구 새말로 132 2층 Operating Hours: 10:00 AM - 10:00 PM
American Baguette Club
The third place I would like to introduce is American Baguette Club. So far, it is my favorite new place this year.
The meals are simple but tasty, and they remind me a lot of my childhood. I really enjoyed how their interior design was influenced by vintage American restaurants. I also loved how the menu was straightforward and also English-friendly.
Honestly, I have visited this place so much that I have already tried most of their menu and absolutely loved them all. First and foremost, I suggest you try all of their sandwiches.
Not only are the baguettes crispy, but the ingredients are also very fresh. Personally, I like their Grandmother’s sandwich, AD Sandwich, and Cheese Bomb sandwich, and I highly suggest their truffle soup and American kimchi on the side. Both of which complement the sandwiches perfectly.
American Baguette Club(아메리칸 바게트클럽) Address: 29 Nonhyeong-Ro, 157-Gil, Gangnam-Gu, Seoul Korean address: 서울 강남구 논현로157길 29 한양아파트 1층 101호 Operating Hours: 12:00 PM - 06:00 PM
