Sangsudong is rising as a new hip place. It is located next to the famous Hongdae and Hapjeong. Quite hidden, it is not known by many.
Let me recommend you some of my favorite places there.

Where to have coffee in Sangsu?
You can not miss it! Located on the main street of sangsu, it catches the eyes of everyone with its cute tarts.
They have sweet tarts as well as quiches, which makes choosing even harder.
My favorite remains the classic Cheesetart -drools- and the chocolate one~
To my vegans in Seoul, this cafe is the perfect choice. They have a selection of freshly baked vegan deserts.
When i first tried their cakes i was surprised that it was vegan, it tasted better than any cake i ever had (the strawberry cake pictured).
Make sure to check out their instagram to know in advance the desserts of the day.
