samcheongdong, one of the most tourist-packed areas in seoul also happens to be a heavenly street for café lovers like myself.
me and my buddy decided to meet up for brunch at heaven on top because we wanted to try a place that wasn’t chloris tea garden or slow garden. not that they are bad but we just needed something fresher and un-franchised, if you know what i mean.
very well-interiorized with baby blue toned furnitures and rather quiet compared to other cafés i’ve tried on the road. perfect if you just wanna sit down with good food and chat away the morning without distractions.
french toast – perfect pinch of sweet and savour.
banana nutella pancake – need i say more?
by the time we were done with brunch and have visited every single shops in the street we were so dehydrated. it was probably the hottest day while i was there. i swear i got minor sunburnt just from walking down samcheongdong. :/
it was our spontaneous decision out of thirst to try coffee byul zan (on the alley where etude house and kiehls is located).
sadly not much to comment on this cafe because all we had was iced americano and lemonade. all i know is it was uber refreshing.
from my visits over couple of months i see that there are frequent turnovers of shops in samcheongdong as many areas with countless numbers of competing cafes would be expected to. nonetheless i love it. i love all the cute lil corners – totally instagram approved. ;)
