Me loves waffles. I jump at any chance to have a bite of the sweet crispy caramelized treat. Here are some waffle places in Seoul I often frequent.
1. Waffle factory. Closed on Monday. Noksapyeong station exit 3, walk straight to the underpass, cross the street, walk straight, you should see Waffle factory without any problem.
A decent choice of waffles, not cheap but not ungodly expensive (~10 KRW per order). Little shop with nice atmosphere. Waffle is thick, moist, very good, served with quite a generous portion of whipped cream.
Berry waffle & Vanilla shake
Forgot the name… I guess that this is Caramel apple waffle:
Ice cream waffle:
2. Homestead Coffee
This is the location in Itaewon, just get out of Itaewon station exit 4 and walk straight, you can’t miss it. I did some naver search with “Homestead coffee waffle” keyword and curiously enough, different branches have different kind of waffles @@ Terrified, I just stick to the Itaewon branch. Good location, big chairs, nice atmosphere but the music can be less loud. Price is slightly lower than that in Waffle factory, and you can sit there allllll day.
Huckleberry waffle — best item. You can’t go wrong with this one.
Picture from another time I ate there:
Niceeeeee — it is often the case that your waffle is served hot.
Another type, I forgot the name D: such a bummer >:O
In any case, stick with the Huckleberry choice.
In the summer they also serve all kinds of Patbingsu, this is the lemon one.
3. Waffle Bant
The winner of everything. Waffle bant’s waffles are the best. They are damn moist, but chewy at the same time. The sweetness is just right, and is always served hot. You don’t need fancy whipped cream of ice cream. Just one bite, you will need to buy another. I think that it is about 2000 KRW for each, not cheap but worth it. They also have awesome shakes — I always choose Yogurt shake — wonderful stuff. I often go to the branch in Hongdae and Sinchon, but Waffle bant is everywhere.
Ughhhh how beautiful
Heavenly combo — like Adam and Eva
4. Street waffle
Not the best, but damn cheap and good enough. I once bought a BIGGGG waffle with FIVE ice cream scoops in Hongdae in the evening. Look out for the booths which sell all kinds of trinkets and phone covers and stuff and the woman should be there. In Sinchon there is also one waffle booth which sells the treat at 2000 KRW (with, of course, 5 scoops of ice cream)
