“Best When the HOT Sign is On!”

This is a great place to go and chill out in Myeongdong. There is so much shopping to be done here, that it's easy to forget to eat. Don't worry, Krispy Kreme will take care of you. It offers a warm place to sit and people watch and eat delicious donuts. These are not the donuts that you will find at home, some interesting ones are the green tea and the sweet potato donuts. If you don't like change, then just settle in for a warm plain glazed donut. If you happen to wander in when the HOT sign is on, then not only are you in luck to get a warm, freshly made donut, but you might also be in for a sweet treat, as Krispy Kreme often gives away 1 free glazed to the customers in line when the HOT sign is on. Don't expect this every time though. Just be thankful if it happens to you!

Seems that at every krispy kreme store, there is always a queue, especially at myeongdong store. I fell in love with their donuts when im there. And there are also patbingsu during summer. Recommended to go go go!!. But be prepared that it is crowded and may not have seats for you to enjoy the donuts.

Nothing beats drinking hot chocolate in the very cold winter morning... My daughter loved their hot chocolate and we would always frequent this place which is about a minute walk from our hotel Ibis Myeongdong... :-) ...

Our hotel didn't provide breakfast so this was a good alternative for a quick eat before roaming the streets of NamDaeMun and other areas around Seoul.

You know life is good when you can take a break from your busy schedule of sightseeing, window shopping or just plain people watching and stop for a cappuccino and a glaze donut at Krispy Kreme in the middle of the Myongdong shopping district. Spread over three floors and commanding a great view of the steady flow of tourists and passersby’s below, this represents an ideal location to study crowd behavior and attempt to identify individual and groups nationalities. The many street vendors and others young and old passing out flyers trying to pick the interest of wandering tourists are also entertaining not to mention the theater goers, massage parlor customers, and cosmetic promotion workers with their free samples. Yes, take another byte of that donut and sip of that cappuccino; it’s a small price to pay for this amount of entertainment.
