Seoul Angmusae


When you’re in Seoul and in the vicinity of Ttukseom station, it’s hard to walk past this bakery cafe without noticing its colourful feature wall and long queue. Located just 4 minutes away from the subway station, Seoul Angmusae is an all-in-one bakery cafe where you can dine, shop and even draw.
