First Review by hmscookie

For cake lovers - Edit

The interior is quite nice but bit run down, also the seats are too close to other tables. People seem to praise their (as in Plant's) desserts the most, but I found them to be average at best and waaaay to sugary. I liked the crumble cake best but I wouldn't buy the muffins or cookies again. You could tell they're quality desserts but they didn't feel too healthy. I know it might seem unfair to expect desserts to be healthy, but I guess I just prefer the organic taste and ingredients in general. Service was okay but not too friendly. All in all, it's not the kind of place I'd visit again by myself, but I'd probably come back to share a cake with a friend.

delicious !! - Edit

Has a lot of variety , I can't remember the exact name but I had the pumpkin gingerbread (??) cake and the Oreo brownie, they pumpkin one was one of the best cakes I've ever had!!! So so good and the exact right size - I had a take out and it was boxed up in the cutest way ever just so lovely. The lady serving me was so friendly. I tried to look for this place for literally three days though, in the end I asked the lady from PLANT and she kindly took me there , it's down small alley way !! But now I know where it is I will defo be visiting again

Pros: friendly staff , a lot of choice

Cons: kinda expensive , but worth it , really hard to find

Delicious vegan cafe 맛있어요 - Edit

맛차 라즈베리 케이크랑 바나나브레드 정말 맛있어요! 그린 스무디는 너무 건강건강해서 개인적으론 그다지^^ The matcha raspberry cake and the banana bread was so good! I didn't really like the green smoothie though... 맛차 라즈베리 케이크랑 바나나브레드 정말 맛있어요! 그린 스무디는 너무 건강건강해서 개인적으론 그다지^^

I miss the food here more than is humanly possible - Edit

I've been meaning to write a review for Plant since I visited it in Seoul in November 2014. It was right next to my hostel and the food was INCREDIBLE. There are only three dishes on the menu (this may have changed since I was there) but all of them had so much flavour, I was raving about this place to my vegan friends back home and went there everyday to eat at least one meal. I would go back to Seoul just for this cafe! If you're in the Itaewon area make a visit, vegan or not. Plus it's not expensive at all. Hands down one of the best vegan cafes I've ever been to!

Pros: amazing food!! the cakes were so good, lovely staff :), nice cosy cafe

Cons: it's small but it's not a problem, just means you

Amazing! - Edit

This small and homely eatery is very cozy and you feel warmly welcome as soon as you are entering! The staff is extraordinary friendly. You could sit there for hours without recognizing the time runs by.
The bakery goods are OUTSTANDING!

Hidden treasure - Edit

It took me forever to find this place, but god was it worth it. Affiliated with the vegan restaurant Plant, Alien's day out bakery serves cakes and meals, wich makes it difficult to resist.
To get there, you need to take line 6, station Itaewon, exit #4
Walk straight when you get outside. Turn left into an alley (now that's the tricky part, the alley is the one just before McDonal's, so when you come across McDo, turn around and turn right in the fist alley you see)
Walk down the little hill until you see a store called Juliet (can't miss it, it's right in front of you)
Turn left, walk straight until you see Greek on the go to your right (Greek restaurant), turn right into the alley and it's only a few minutes away. Usually, there's a sign with an arrow at that point. It's a small place, but people are extremely nice and speak perfect english!
If you are having trouble finding the place, there's an information kiosk in the subway station, on your way out. That's how I found it in the first place.
Order the burger, it's to die foorrrr ! :D

Excellent For Reminding Me Of My Mother's Baking - Edit

Having lived in South Korea, I had neither an oven, or my mom to cook her delicious vegan breads (especially chocolate zuccini, or bananna), and other vegan goods. This bakery compensated plenty for my mom's absence with it's wonderful baked variety.

Beautiful - Edit

Echoing another reviewer's sentiment, I can wholeheartedly proclaim that any visit to Itaewon without a stop at Plant would be utterly unfathomable. The food is absolutely perfect. Fresh, rich, and complex flavours define the savoury offerings from Yona's Kitchen, while dark, mature, and multifaceted creations from the bakery round out the palette. To describe the sensation upon completing a meal here as wholly satisfying would be a grave understatement.

The menu, ambience, and surroundings of this unique treasure of a cafe are reminiscent of that familiar little place dear to city-dwellers the world over. Natural decor, rough finish, and recycled jars for table ornaments make the place feel organic, honest, and warmly inviting. And did I mention they play such artists as Leonard Cohen and Nick Drake on the stereo?

Once again, a visit to this establishment should be a necessity for not just the vegan epicure, but any individual wishing to excite the palette and satisfy the soul.

Pros: Food, Sweets, Ambience

excellent! - Edit

Mipa (one of the owners of Plant) is a Korean vegan blogger. She has been such an asset to the vegan expat community. Visited her cafe a couple weeks ago and had a delicious salad and a cupcake. Anytime I go to itaewon in the future, I'll definitely be stopping in at Plant.

Pros: vegan baked goods , nice environment , delicious
