Coco Bruni, it seems like the biggest chocolatier slash coffee shop franchise in Hongdae area that I spotted right in front of the subway exit number 8, if I remember it correct.

Earl Grey Cake – that did not really taste like earl grey cake.
The decor was a bit too fancy and edgy for my taste as I prefer more of a home-ly, vintage styled cafes. But that’s purely my preference.
However, I loved how spacious this place was – perfect spot to rest your tired legs after strolling down the streets of Hongdae, watching street musicians play, shopping at Stylenanda’s offline flagship store (which was a maze to find! – make sure to search for the direction prior to heading there).
Overall, it’s a very luxurious brand I would say – but personally for me there wasn’t anything particular to be particularly be wow-ed by it. Oh and I was very excited to try their earl grey cake but it was a bit disappointing as well. boohoo :(
Perhaps I’ll try their chocolates the next time I visit.
