We had brunch there and the menu had some options that I had not seen before. We will return and would recommend for brunch.

I ordered the Itaewon Breakfast (fried egg, bacon, toast, spinach, hummus) and an extra sausage. The eggs were fried, yolks somewhat firmer than I do myself, and... More

The Flying Pan is the place for Western breakfast cravings in Seoul. Excellent selection of brunch options, all kinds of French Toast, Eggs and Pancakes. They also do salads and sandwiches. It all looks mouth-watering delicious, especially if you have been abroad too long. We tried blood orange juice (so rare to get in Seoul), which was the freshest I... More

This place is completely amazing. You won't regret ordering the eggs benedict with salmon. So delicious! Sparkling wine and a beautifully created latte completed my meal.

This restaurant has outstanding lunch selections! All options are good and I highly recommend any of the chef's creations. The menu changes all the time so it's worth going back to try something new. A little pricey but you get what you pay for.
