“The Best, the Best, the Best, Fantastic.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 20, 2014

Take it from an American living in Asia, American breakfast are very difficult to find all over Asia. I look for them in every city I visit in Asia; some try but none even come close to Travel Maker. Even the large hotels who try to make American breakfast can not compare. Here you will find a limited but exact American breakfast menu. Many combo dishes with food and beverage combined or individual dishes. The pancakes were excellent, egg dishes with sausage, yes swifts brown and serve, haven't had those since leaving the USA, bacon, waffles, French toast. It was a fantastic experience. You order at the counter and then they bring the food to you. Decent English speaking staff. Missed it on previous visits unfortunately but will not in the future. It is not hard to find, just follow this path. Get off at the Hongik University stop on the metro, green line 2. You may have to switch trains depending on where you are. Take exit 3 and walk straight ahead, less than 100 meters. There are many little coffee shops, bars and restaurants because you are in a college area, but just down on your left you will see it. There is a park on the right side of the street. It is a small place and very casual, some tables, some booths and a few tv's for sports viewing. They close at 5:00 most days so catering to what they specialize in, breakfast all day. If you are into American breakfast, yes, no baked beans and cooked tomatoes here, you will visit here many times. Restroom in the back. The prices are reasonable by Seoul standards. Don't miss it.

“Longing for a American diner breakfast? Here's your spot.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 14, 2014

It's a little pricey, but if you've been looking for a place to eat breakfast that's just like the one you get at that diner near your home in the US, this is it. It has eggs, pancakes and hash browns, served they way they are in the U.S. I had the equivalent of a Denny's Grand Slam, and it was spot-on but better quality. Wife had the same thing, but with French Toast. She was also happy with her meal. TVs show American sports. I watched game two or three of the NBA finals while I was eating. Good strong Americano coffee. Highly recommended. It's a little hole in the wall on an out of the way street, but its worth a little walk.

“Best Breakfast in Korea!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 7, 2014

Been in Seoul for 8 days now was, had some very good Korean food, BUT was dying for Eggs, bacon and pancakes...

Travel Maker hit the spot and MORE! The owner has lived in the US so spoke english very well, we talked about the NBA finals and enjoyed crispy hash browns and maple syrup soaked pancakes, da best!

It was a little hard to find but worth it.

“Honesty and Happiness”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2014

Prices for coffe and food (American Breasfast style) were Honest.; quite a good quality for their prices. Free internet and various American channels such as CNN, movies, sports made me so comfortable to give out Happiness. Moreover, there are lots of places to taste Korean traditional foods nearby. Seeing is Beliving.
