I've dined here several times over the years. This small Koreatown coffee shop is associated with Hotel Stanford. There's a huge scaffolding in front of the building these days. They're expensive as far as coffee shops go, but if you want to treat yourself to a special experience, I would recommend this place. The decor is very modern and decorative.... More

This bakery in a block of Korean restaurants is fabulous! They make gorgeous cakes which you will definitely want to share. Try the sweet potato cake-light, airy and unlike anything you've had before. There are also casual restaurants in this very lively multi-eatery location. Take your food upstairs and eat at the counter by the windows.

My family and I were walking around Koreatown and since we were cold, we wanted to get warm drinks. When we walked in the cafe, the people were so nice and welcoming.

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood Profile
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit - spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's paradise where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
