First Review by VeganBiker

Favorite vegan bakery in Seoul - Edit

This has got to be in my top three favorite vegan places in Seoul. They do have a dairy option for drinks, but all the bread and pastries are completely vegan and delicious! Sadly I only found this place a few days before flying back home, but I dropped by multiple times and even stacked up on snacks for my flight. Also, the owner is good at English, so he can explain all the pastries and breads if you ask nicely(all the names and descriptions are in Korean). He also gave me free bread at no extra charge, which was super nice of him!

Pros: All vegan bread and pastries, Pretty good selection, nice staff, Cheap

Cons: Serves dairy drinks

One of my favourite places in Seoul - Edit

I love this place so much! The staff are super friendly and the bread and cakes are delicious, fresh and affordable.
They also sell vegan cheese, which was great for me when I lived in Seoul, because I couldn't find it anywhere else.

I especially love their olive bread :)

I am looking forward to visiting it again when I am next in Korea. The Bread Blue, FIGHTING!

Pros: Delicious Bread, Sells vegan cheese etc, Super friendly staff

yummy bread, fair pricing - Edit

The bread is really yummy, and relatively inexpensive. The cafe is big with a lot of seating, good wifi, and fans.
I've tried most of the breads here! I prefer cake with a higher cake to cream ratio, and the muffins are just okay, but I really like the breads like their sweet potato baguette, coconut cream bread, and garlic bread. Their vegan burger is good too.
After the change in management, I thought something was a little off. The owners are not vegan. The workers don't give as much freebies, and aren't as friendly. Also, more importantly, they don't keep the place well stocked. I've been there 3+ times after the change in management, and every time, they didn't vegan burgers + several other items.
I prefer the location in Seokyo under the original management.

adorable! friendly! speaks English! - Edit

This cafe is adorable, with a cat theme everywhere - but most important, it has amazing vegan bread options. Get something warmed by the staff and then take some for the road for later to prevent road hunger. The staff speaks English and the signs are in English. They also make tea lattes with soya! A must-visit for the vegan Seoul traveler.

Pros: all vegan , friendly staff , good location

Cons: none

I went to this bakery several times during my time in Seoul to pick up snacks. They have a wide array of baked goods and drinks (please note you will have to specify soy milk for the drinks). My favorites were the chocolate bread and roll cake. Also, the owner is really nice! Definitely recommend it.

Pros: Big selection, Friendly owner, Delicious!

Kindest Owner and Best Treats - Edit

I love The Bread Blue! The owner is one of the nicest people I've met in Korea. He is always smiling and welcoming when I come in. He also always wants to chat and makes sure I am happy with the food. He also gives me a free treat sometimes, which is so kind!

It's delicious! Every wonderful sweet and savory vegan pastry you can think of, it's all there! My favorite is the chocolate heart-shaped rice cookies.
A must-go to for all vegans and bakery lovers in general. Best bakery in Seoul!

Pros: Delicious Food, Wonderful Owner/Staff, Good hours

Would fly to Korea just for this ; ) - Edit

Such a special place. Like others have mentioned, the staff is lovely and there is such a great variety of goodies. I also love the sweet potato bread, no-sugar black rice bread and the biscotti. Last time, I tried a vegan burger and it was a very nice option for something more substantial.

They always give returning customers extra treats.

Must go place in Seoul!

Pros: Vegan treats! , Friendly, Variety

My Favorite Bakery - Edit

During my month long stay in Seoul, I have frequented this location more than any other.

I am a huge fan of their sweet potato bread!

The staff is very kind and will often give me a free item as I leave the bakery. This allows me to try more of their baked goods and also respect them to a greater degree. Their kindness will forever be remembered by me.

They have a large seating area and a variety of coffees, teas, and other drinks. I will dearly miss this bakery when I return to San Diego.

Pros: Very Friendly Staff, Great Selection of Baked Goods, Awesome Value

Very friendly owner and staff. Not to mention lots of delicious bread for vegans and vegetarians! :) - Edit

Once you enter this vege bakery, the friendly owner will greet you with his staff. There are lots of different types of bread. Unfortunately, I have tried only a few. But I tell you they all taste so good.

Besides bread, the bakery is quite spacious, and its atmosphere is quite relaxing and peaceful though there are usually many customers. And free wifi is provided. So it’s an ideal place for reading a nice book with yummy bread and hot chocolate. If you are staying in Korea, you had better go check out this great bakery. :)

Pros: Friendly owner and staff , Many different types of delicious bread, Good atmosphere

Cons: None

love love LOVE - Edit

I came here for bread. While I was here the baker gave me a sandwich, too. Ate the thing right out the door. It was delicious!! The soy ham and cheese sandwich - not sure if that's the correct translation but that's what I think he called it. The bread was delicious! Just ate toasted up the potato bread and put some avocados I found on it. Heaven. Go here! Run here!

Awesome! - Edit

On 6 days out of the 8 I spent in Seoul, I started my day with breakfast/brunch at The Bread Blue - it's that good! Everything is vegan, delicious and fairly priced and the staff are SUPER friendly (and can speak English)! The bakery itself is a very chilled and comfortable setting. I personally would recommend The Bread Blue as a must visit if you're in Seoul.

One thing to bare in mind is that with the drinks, I think there is an option between dairy milk and non-dairy milk - they always asked me what I'd prefer, though, so I think it's unlikely you'll get caught out.

Visit The Bread Blue!!!!!

The BEST Vegan Bakery Anywhere - Edit

Go here today!

I nearly gave up twice trying to find it; thankfully, I persevered (maybe ask at a hotel first). I'm from NYC but can say this is my favorite vegan bakery anywhere.

The owner is super generous and sympathetic, saying "sorry" I had trouble finding them, then bringing me over a free croissant later. They gave a huge selection of breads, cakes, cinnamon rolls, crossaint and large variety of pastries. Prices are less than New York and nothing I had was too sugary, heavy, nor greasy at all.

The green tea frappucinos were both ample in size and amazing in taste. I had two in a row! The owner reappeared, presenting me with a cream filled bread on the house.

Try the lemon cream filled pastries!

I may move to Seoul just to eat here.

Pros: Wonderful staff, Reasonable prices, Incredible treats!

Cons: None!

So Friendly - Edit

My partner and I came to buy some sweet and savory baked goods for his birthday. There wasn't much on the savory side, but the stuff we got was fantastic! We tried a piece of chocolate cake, the garlic bread, the sweet potato bread, a melon custard bun, and a chocolate custard bun. The owner was so friendly that he brought out a complementary lemon iced swiss bun that was also fantastic. we couldn't eat everything, so we asked for the baked goods to be wrapped. They were just as good the next day. This place is really amazing. It makes me want to move to Seoul! (Coffee is good too!)

Pros: Great baked goods, lots of selection, friendly sta

This is honestly one of my favorite places in Seoul. I frequented this place a few times a week :P

The owner (and all the workers) are the nicest people, the food is great! One of my personal favorites is the potato bread (when you want something savory)!

The ciabatta bread is also like the typical bread you would find in Europe or the States (not the finely ground kind you'd typically find in Asia)!

They also like to give "service" (aka free stuff) and of course, free wifi, which are always pluses!

Pros: Great Service, Great Food, Great Ambience

Cons: Nothing really. Maybe just that I keep spending $$

Amazing bakery, great staff - a must-try! - Edit

Everything I've tried here tasted delicious. There are so many salty and sweet options to choose from! Also, the drinks are huge and delicious as well. I recommend the smoothies and teas - the citron-yuzu, ginger, and mango flavors were the ones I very much enjoyed.

The owner is incredibly nice - he kept giving me things for free each time I visited! Of course, that made me addicted to so many more things, haha~ Try the salty tofu and mushroom rolls - they are amazing and very filling. The bread stuffed with a sweet potato is great as well! No, seriously, everything is great. I only regret I don't have more than one stomach or don't burn calories faster, so I could eat even more. :P

The rectangular bars with nuts in the middle, btw - you have to try those. I brought some home for relatives to try, and they loved them!

Also, there are so many 1K-won options that are amazing - I am particularly fond of the flower-shaped ones with green filling. I bought a bunch to treat acquaintances. :)

End of story, I think you will also get addicted to this place. I can't wait to come to Seoul and visit again! :)))

Some of the staff speak pretty good English, too. Everyone is friendly and helpful. It is a pleasure to sit down and sip tea while reading. There are many foreign visitors - I often heard French spoken in particular.

Check out Google maps well before your visit. It was a bit difficult for me to find the place the first time. Basically, after you walk out at the indicated subway exit, you turn at the first opportunity, then you have to cross a street with many parked cars in the middle section, then you have to go for I think 4 more blocks before you turn into a side street and follow it to the bakery.

As a side note, there is a vegan guest house for women nearby - the Sleeping Strawberry, so if you get to stay there, you can visit all the time~

Pros: Amazing bakery products, Tasty and huge drinks, Extremely nice owner and staff

Great vegan bakery in Hongdae - Edit

EVERY baked good in here is VEGAN, so just go crazy and try them all. Seriously, the bread, the cakes, everything is really good. The ciabattas (2000w?) are fluffy inside, crusty outside, go grey with oil+balsamic, and are made with wholemeal (I think). The little sweet bean treats (1000w each) are awesome. The sugar-free black buns (4000w). The big chocolatey cinnamon danish thingies (3800w) are delightful. The dude is really nice, speaks enough English to help you through and tends to give foreigners a free item. Seems like plenty of Korean locals come in for the coffee and trees – no idea if they're vegan. Open 10-10. Right above Inno Jam Jam, if you need (vegan) jam, too. You can get lattes with soy or oat milk. Can't recommend this place highly enough.

Pros: Tasty treats, Nice owner, Soy coffee bevies

Cons: Hard to find (the first time)

the best in seoul - Edit

I like everything about this bakery: food is amazing and all the time I came here I had to take some home with me; location is perfect, close to the subway but in a much calmer street, so that it is pleasant to seat outside; the indoor setting is also very nice. Plus, it's open until late. The only thing I would change is even though food is 100% vegan, they do have milk for cappuccinos, smoothies etc.

Pros: tasty, cheap, huge variety

Cons: they sell dairy
