UMM YOU HAVE EVERYTHING YOU NEED RIGHT HERE. BREAD. BREAD. ALL.THE.BREAD.

Let the revelry begin.


Nonhyeon Dong

Comme D Habitude (Closed)

(Closed restaurant)
 Pictures

First on our list is one of the newest carb purveyors in the block.

MangoPlate ID @혀니이

In a nondescript neighborhood, with an equally nondescript placard...

 Pictures

...lies some of the finest baked goods, cakes, and pastries in perhaps the entire city.

 Pictures
MangoPlate ID @쵸쵸

LIKE THIS MATCHA CHIFFON CAKE WHUT (cuz the love for matcha will never die).

 Pictures
MangoPlate ID @맛난거먹쟈

Run by a couple who honed their craft in France - and their efforts DEFINITELY show.


Banpo Dong

Fave

Kicking it in Itaewon with fancy bread and even fancier coffee.

 Pictures
Instagram ID @kim_hee_eun____

Cuz one location in Sadang couldn't sufficiently fulfill our craving for Fave croissants.

 Pictures
MangoPlate ID @먹사랑

And you can of course partake in a bit of people-watching with your bread in tow.


Jongno

Fritz Coffee Company

 Pictures
MangoPlate ID @맛난거먹쟈

Speaking of branching out...the ever popular Fritz strikes again, this time in Jongno!

 Pictures
MangoPlate ID @샤샤❤

All the baked goods you tried and failed to get your hands on in Mapo, you can get here!!!

 Pictures
MangoPlate ID @맛난거먹쟈

An added appeal to this location is, of course, the hanok building. ALL.THE.HANOK.AYEE.

 Pictures
MangoPlate ID @샤샤❤

If you're not eating your danish pastries in a hanok house, you're doing it wrong.

Don't let the insane lines at this Seongsu-dong bakery deter you.

 Pictures
Instagram ID @jjo_o12

One bite of their legendary cubic breads filled with custard, and you can never go back.

 Pictures
MangoPlate ID @깹이

If you're not one for cloyingly sweet custard, their buttery scones happen to be superb.

 Pictures
MangoPlate ID @깹이

A display case lined with row upon row of neatly packaged bread loaves can do no wrong.


Jongno

Scoff

 Pictures
MangoPlate ID @하요미

LONDON CALLINGGGGGGGG.

 Pictures
MangoPlate ID @yeroro

I'm telling you; this can't possibly be in Seoul. LOOK AT THOSE CHALKBOARD AESTHETICS.

 Pictures
MangoPlate ID @JENNY

But Scoff in Seochon is possibly the only place where a brownie in hanok just feels right.

 Pictures
MangoPlate ID @샤샤❤

Not to mention the most useful and significant contribution of the British: scones.

 Pictures
MangoPlate ID @JENNY

YOU DON'T NEED TO TELL ME TWICE. #carbs4lyfe


Sinsa & Apgujeong

Our Bakery

 Pictures
MangoPlate ID @eksk@.@

Yet another bakery with insane lines and equally insane bread, but completely necessary.

 Pictures
MangoPlate ID @이보나

Only the most fly It-people will tout their eponymous green, paisley(?) logo.

 Pictures
MangoPlate ID @이보나

So exclusive that their most popular croissant ("Dirty Choco") is almost always sold out.

 Pictures
MangoPlate ID @준영

If you miss out on their croissants, I guessss you'll have to make do with their bread.

 Pictures
MangoPlate ID @Olivia Kim

Such a hard life.


Seongdong-gu

Onion

 Pictures
MangoPlate ID @공은주

I present to you the worthy rival and arch nemesis of the cubic bread: Cafe Onion.

 Pictures
MangoPlate ID @나겸

While the industrial-chic is now pervasive and in-your-face, Onion was the pioneer.

 Pictures
MangoPlate ID @이주영

And there's no other place that does the industrial complex conversion look justice.

 Pictures
MangoPlate ID @미야우

Overnight/ Instagram sensations can be all show, no substance, but Onion is different.

 Pictures
MangoPlate ID @준영

Worth mentioning is their powdered sugar-topped bread cones. #YUMMZZZ.


Itaewon & Hannam

Mr Peyton

(Closed restaurant)
 Pictures
Instagram ID @onelike25

Rounding out the list is another Itaewon gem (cuz Itaewon > everywhere else).

 Pictures
MangoPlate ID @맛난거먹쟈

Cute motif? Check. Abunddant and delicious supply of bread? Check check check.

 Pictures
Instagram ID @jdddworld

Where else in Seoul will you actually find a place that does proper cinnamon rolls? HMMM??

You may have your insipid relationship; I will have my bagels and rye and sourdough.
