In the town of Yeonnam-dong, you can see tiny cafes and stores opening up that cater to the trendy tastes of young people. Different from the bustling streets of Hongdae, Yeonnam-dong offers small, independent stores and you can find many hidden brunch spots here.
If you are looking for a quiet cafe for a nice calming brunch experience, you should definitely try out Grain. Grain is a small brunch cafe that opened about 2 months ago, and is quickly becoming a hot place for people looking for the perfect combination of healthy and tasty food. Grain offers Nordic and Danish style breakfasts. Their Nordic breakfast tray (₩15,000) carries 5 tiny plates with scrambled egg, avocado, sausage, homemade yogurt with fruit, smoked salmon, and their special bread so that you can even make a breakfast sandwich.
They also have open sandwiches with chicken salad, roast beef, smoked salmon, and other options. Just make sure to have your GPS on your phone ready with you at all times, because getting through Yeonnam’s Maze Pathway (known as 미로길) and finding the hidden stores in the allies can get pretty confusing, but definitely worth it.
