5 Best Cafes in Seoul, South Korea that You Should Visit

(Last Updated On: July 12, 2023)

I have been watching tons of cafe vlogs (카페브이로그) since the pandemic started. Since we are already in the endemic phase, I would like to share 5 cafes in Seoul that I plan to visit soon and why you should too!

For Malaysians, you can already book your flight ticket to South Korea and click here to know more about the travel guide made by Korea Tourism Organization Malaysia.

Make sure to scroll to read more! Let’s start our cafe hunting, 시작.

1. Aya Coffee

I learned about the existence of croffle for the first time, thanks to Aya Coffee. Whenever they post their cafe vlog on YouTube, I never miss it because I like the colour grading, and it looks aesthetic.

When I visit the cafe, I would like to try Aya Coffee, Black Sesame Cream Latte, Dalgona Latte and Croffle because it looks good. Plus, their barista actively joined the competition. So, I’m really curious about the coffee.

I did DM them and ask if they had certain ingredients that they use that are not permissible to consume by Muslims. I still haven’t received anything. If I get the answer, I will update it here. 

Price range: Between RM12 to RM20 per drink/dessert.
Address: 서울 강남구 언주로94길 11 1층.
How to get there: 9-minute walk from Hapjeong station exit 5 (선릉역5번). Click HERE for directions from Naver Map.

2. Their Coffee (데얼커피)

I had followed Their Coffee cafe vlogs even before they moved to a new place! Their journey as a couple and cafe owner is something that inspired me. 

There are a few things that I want to try, such as Their Coffee, Melon Cream Soda, cookies and bear madeleine!

Oh, and I might purchase a few merchandise from them since I like to collect cute cups 😂

I did DM them and ask if they had certain ingredients that they use that are not permissible to consume by Muslims. The owner replied to my message and said:

“Hello! It does not contain the above ingredients. Thank you ☺️.” 

Now you can try their drinks and dessert at ease!

Price range: Between RM16 to RM22 per drink/dessert.

3. Osechill (오색칠)

I want to visit this cafe because of Mino (one of Winner members). I can’t imagine what the drink and food taste like. Is it up to the expectation? We’ll see when I get there! 

There are a few things that I want to try, such as Pastel Cake, Osechill Signature Coffee and their ade drinks. 

I did DM them and ask if they had certain ingredients that they use that are not permissible to consume by Muslims. I still haven’t received anything. If I get the answer, I will update it here.

4. Cafe Bless Roll (블레스롤 대전유성본점)

I always watched Zoe’s vlog and spotted a bright swiss roll and ice cream. Looking at how she did the ice cream makes me want to try it so badly. It looks perfect!  

By the way, I did DM them and asked if they had certain ingredients that they use that are not permissible to consume by Muslims. I still haven’t received anything. If I get the answer, I will update it here. 

Cafe Bless Roll has a few stores around South Korea, around 27. Some stores are open daily from 9 am to 12 am or 10 am to 1 am. The opening hours may vary according to the store that you are going.

Price range: Between RM7 to RM250 per drink/dish/whole cake.

5. Lim-Onsim (림온심)

I’m attracted to their colourful American cookies through their YouTube videos. It’s like in fascinating shapes and flavours, and it’s intrigued me. When Soorim 씨 showed the raw process of preparing the ingredients and the final products, my only thoughts were that I should try the cookies very soon!

Plus, I asked them on Instagram if they had certain ingredients they use that are not permissible to consume by Muslims. They replied that there’s none from that I mentioned.

Even though they mentioned they open until 7 pm, make sure to queue early. Because, in their videos, they showed that the cookies sold out fast, sometimes around 3 pm. But, if you want to play safe, you can make a reservation via KakaoTalk.

Price range: RM14 per cookie.
Address: 경기 의정부시 금오동 474-6
How to get there: 7-minute walk from Gyeonggi Provincial Government Northern Office station, exit 1 (경기도청북부청사역1번출구). Click HERE for directions from Naver Map.
Opening hours: Closed on Monday and Sunday. The rest of the day, they open from 12 pm until 7 pm
Available facilities: Group seating, parking, take-away packaging, reservations and wireless internet.
