5 friends went for brunch. Ploughmans lunch ~ very tasty but not enough cheese and the brie was not authentic. (Had to ask for butter) Itaewon breakfast good but needs bacon^^ Pancakes big and rich. Eggs with avocado and salmon was great as was the same dish but with ham instead. High quality... read more

It's a hip little place w/ tables, eclectic decorations and funky music playing. I visited twice actually; once with some students who loved the pancakes and amount of food served. The other time was just my wife and I a few weeks later. The menu is varied and, as I mentioned before, was a hit w/ high school teenagers. Plus... More

Breakfast in Itaewon with 14 and 7 year olds. Little got a big bowl of hot chocolate and walnut banana pancakes. Loved it! 14 year old got french toast with orange-glazed bacon! YES! Husband and I got the benedict, ham for him and salmon for me! EGGCELLENT! Great service, even better food, great coffee! Wish we could've had mimosas!

I went here for a celebratory breakfast and was very surprised! It's great! I had banana and walnut pancakes topped with vanilla ice cream. My husband had eggs Benedict. Everything was really great!

The perfect place for a good atmosphere to talk while listening to soft music in the background. It's a cozy place to spend time. It's very clean and staff was welcoming. I would suggest it for brunch as they have great menu. Fresh flowers also are my favorite.

We had the Itaewon Breakfast and the Eggs Benedict (with Ham) and it was delicious to say the least. A bit on the pricey side but the portions are generous. Service was friendly but a little hard to communicate at times.

I don't know why I don't go more often. The food is delicious and although it isn't cheap, the serving size makes up for it.

One of my favorite places in Seoul for brunch, delicious eggs benedict, waffles, pancakes etc. Small and cozy place, great for a casual way to start the day.

This is a small venue with a lot of character. I dropped by with two other folks for breakfast, and I ordered the chocolate pancakes. If you're a fan of chocolate, this dish is for you.

I kicked myself all the way home. I cannot believe it took us over a year of walking by this restaurant to finally try it out. The menu was bigger than I expected. My wife ended up getting a salmon plate with pouched egg and avocado. I on the other hand had to try the pancakes. Both plates were delicious.... More

Staying in Itaewon

Neighborhood Profile
Itaewon
Neighboring the immense Yongsan American Garrison, Itaewon was once shunned by locals as a seedy, red light district. But within the past few years, Itaewon and its surrounding neighborhoods such as Kyunglidan and Haebangchong have undergone a major revival to quickly become one of Seoul’s hottest areas. Here, trendy international restaurants dot the area alongside hip lounge bars and some of Seoul’s hottest club venues. After dark, Itaewon comes into its own as one of Seoul’s top party scenes. The crowd is a fascinating patchwork of all backgrounds and identities, including a small but thriving Muslim community (centered on Korea’s sole mosque), the LGBT community (with a string of popular bars and clubs), and a wide range of ethnicities and cultures scattered around. Those seeking a quiet respite should head towards the eastern end, in Hannam-dong, which not only has one of Korea’s best art museums, the Leeum Samsung Museum of Art, but plenty of mid-range to upscale restaurants and cafes.
