I posted 9 Korean cute cafes from Seoul to Jeju Island a couple weeks ago. This is the second one but only in Seoul For the first one, click here.
For every cafe, I attached my post in my Korean blog so you can click on it and see more pictures.
1. Humming bella (Hongdae or Hapjeong, Seoul)
It truly has BEAUTIFUL desserts like cakes and tarts. I have tried their earl grey cake and strawberry tart and both of them were delicious. They look good and taste good. I also liked their small garden which is hard to find in a crowded, busy district like Hongdae. I prefer seating by the big windows because you can see people going by and feel Seoul.
Price: Earl grey cake – 6,000KRW / Strawberry tart – 7,000KRW / Coffee from 4,500KRW
Address: 서울 마포구 독막로 7길 57 (57, Dongmak-ro 7-gil, Mapo-gu, Seoul, Korea)

2. The DalDal (Gangnam station, Seoul)
This cafe used to be a house, so it gives you a nice cozy feeling. It sells various types of chocolates including chocolate drinks. Their green tea chocolate (그린티 쇼콜라) is amazing. It melts in your mouth and the taste of the green tea is rich. Their chocolate drinks are delicious as well. I recommend trying the Real classic chocolate drink, which is not super sweet but just enough.
I can’t describe their affogato in words so I attached a short clip. Enjoy!
Price: Chocolat – 6,500KRW / Real classic chocolate drink – 6,500KRW / Affogato – 7,000KRW
Address: 서울 강남구 강남대로102길 38-6 (38-6, Gangnam-daero 102-gil, Gangnam-gu, Seoul)

3. Coffee Hanyakbang (Euljiro, Seoul)
Coffee Hanyakbang shows how Korean buildings looked in the 1930s. This place is located in a small alley which is hard to find. It is old but stylish inside with various kinds of ornaments and decorations. They still play records instead of music from a cellphone. For me, born in the 1990s, everything here was interesting and attractive.
The price of their drinks is pretty low compared to that of other cafes in Seoul. I have tried Maple latte and Espresso con panna, which is coffee with whipping cream. Both tasted good
Price: Maple latte – 4,000KRW / Espresso con panna – 4,000KRW
Address: 서울시 중구 삼일대로12길 16-6 (16-6, Samil-daero 12-gil, Jung-gu, Seoul, Korea)

4. Mopsi (Hongdae, Seoul)
Mopsi is specialized in their cheesecake baked in a small, cute pot. Of course, I attached the short clip of it. It is super soft; especially the center, which is so soft that it looks like liquid. Oh and it is hot. It comes to you right after it is baked. Good to try in the winter
Price: Cheesecake that I tried – 6,800KRW / Royal milk tea – 6,500KRW
Address: 서울 마포구 와우산로29길 48-29 (48-29, Wausan-ro 29-gil, Mapo-gu, Seoul, Korea)

Sulbing is a big franchise which sells Korean desserts especially Bingsu (shaved ice with sweet toppings). It continuously launches new types of Sulbing and HanDdalgi Sulbing (한딸기설빙) was launched two months ago. Sulbing’s ice is special; it is not icy, but powdery, and not too cold. You should try it
Price: Bingsu from 6,000KRW / Handdalgi Sulbing – 12,000KRW
