Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

You won't be disappointed by the waffles here – they're truly delicious, topped with some amazing choices. They're quite generous in size, so unless you're up for a serious feast, sharing with a friend is a smart move. The place itself has a cozy vibe,...perfect for sitting back and taking a breather. Just a little heads-up though, some of the fruit-based options might be out of season.More

The cafe is cozy and pretty quiet which is lovely. I expect delicious and crispy yet soft waffle but the waffle I ordered was too soft and mushy, probably from the loads of whipped cream on top. Did not enjoy it, will not visit again.

I have visited many cafe in the world, but this coffee shop's really stunning, it looks so amazing from outside to inside. Our coffee cup were really tasted with little ice, the waiter and barista was so friendly, expecially the barista's skill is wonderful. This...is a great place to chill out. Loved it!More

The only reason I am rating 4 out of five is because our eggs, sausage, waffles were Luke warm. I like my food hot. The ladies running the cafe were friendly and efficient. The salad dressing was yummy. We only saw skim milk or maybe...it was two percent. We prefer half and half or cream. Also, there wasn't any syrup for the waffle. We decided we weren't going to ask for any because the waffle itself was pretty sweet (our breakfast came with a plain waffle). The breakfast was part of our hotel deal with the Savoy Hotel. It was conveniently located within the Savoy complex.More

When you going looking for this "little" cafe be sure to look up. Many of the cafes in the area are located on the second or third floor of buildings. We almost missed this little gem on our walk through Myeongdong shopping area. There is...actually more then one as like many of the stores in the area, both are really good. Please remember that not everyone speaks English so they have a sign you can point to place an order. Each creation is custom made so it takes a few minutes but it is worth the wait. It is a lot of food for one person so you might want to try a half size or split it with someone.More

I dream about the mango waffle! Never knew there was such a creation. If you do nothing else in Seoul you must visit this place. Only hope I am lucky enough to get back for another one.

A friend and I shared an amazing mango waffle. It was the perfect size to split. The mango grapefruit tea was nice to try cold. Also, I believe this place opened much earlier than what’s listed on TripAdvisor.

Nice cafe with nice waffle! And this is also the first time I see and tried a banana latte (tea and none-coffee drink). We were there for breakfast, the staff did not even tell us they have breakfast/savory menu and we end up with a...sweet waffle with fruits and ice creamMore

This cafe located right in the middle of myeongdong with a little turn from the main street. It is on top of savoy homan hotel. I loved that this cafe had a homy feeling in it, warm and a bit quite. We had fruit waffle...and hot cappucino. The waffle itself was vey good, warm and crispy, but overall was a little too sweet for my liking, maybe because they used canned sweetened fruit, in addition of the sweet whipped cream. Cappucino is great though. If you get tired of shopping in myeongdong you should visit this place to have a nice rest while eating desserts, I mean dessert can be eaten anytime right? At least for me :)More

Went to this place yesterday and ordered couples of drink. Very disappointed that the hot cafe mocha was served in paper cup (consumed in store), whole cup get messy with the whipped cream. I tried my luck at another outlet near the ehwa woman uni...today which was totally different. Again, I ordered the same hot cafe mocha, it served in normal cup with nice presentation.More

Nice and cosy place to sit down and rest your weary legs. There is limited varieties of bingsu and they are quite expensive (13,000 won) and large so I suggest you bring friends to share. They have cakes and waffles too. My ice chocolate ice...cream waffle hits the spot.More
