This is the best Korean food in Eugene (very authentic) and will make everyone a fan of the cuisine. Its tucked away downstairs so the meal feels relatively private, the gentleman and his wife that own it are courteous and caring, and the food always has the best, freshest ingredients that every Korean lover knows are important to making the dishes perfect. Its always a treat to go here for me. The decor is a little plain and you don't have to worry about dressing about, but you sure will feel like a king when you leave with a stomach full of delicious food and probably some leftovers!

“One of Eugene's best restaurants”
Reviewed March 10, 2009

Cafe Seoul is one of my favorite places to eat in Eugene. The owner is very friendly, and the service is fast enough (unless it's very busy). There's not a ton of atmosphere to the place aside from a quaint charm, but I find it very relaxing, and what really matters to me is the food.

I haven't had the chance to try tons of different dishes (I'm still new to Eugene), but the Yuk Gae Jang is phenomenal. The mixture of spicy, beefy broth and egg yolk is heavenly, and the beef, noodles, and vegetables are generous and delicious. In terms of prices, it's a bit higher than some other restaurants in the area but still very affordable ($8.99 for a bowl of Yuk Gae Jang) and the quality is outstanding. Highly recommended to anyone looking for good Korean food in Eugene, or just good food close to the University. They also have some Japanese dishes (yakisoba and teriyaki) if you're looking for something besides Korean.

There isn't a huge variety of side dishes (only 3 per meal), but they're all very good and the owner will bring you more whenever you ask. The kimchee is some of the best I've had, I can't get enough of it.

Good place to hang out with friends or family.

“Authentic Korean Food”
Reviewed July 11, 2008

If you're craving authentic Korean food, Cafe Seoul is a great place to go. Although the service is a bit slow (probably due to lack of staff members), the setting is quaint and pleasant. A nice place to go for lunch. The menu includes some of the most popular Korean foods, like bulgogi and bibimbap. The stews, like the yukaejang, are wonderful too. There is also the option of teriyaki dishes. The prices are decent, and overall, Cafe Seoul gets a good rating for the quality of the food.
