Best cappuccino in SeoulNo matter where travel takes me, my favorite way to begin a day is with a cup of cappuccino accompanied with a buttery treat. On my recent trip to Seoul, I bookmarked Terarosa Coffee in Gwanghwamun and was blown away by the flawless coffee and pastries. Terarosa Coffee has been in business since 2002 and has about 10 locations in Seoul. The Gwanghwamun branch has a coffee bar, a bakery, and a sizable section of coffee table books. The interior felt new yet rustic with vintage coffee equipment and ephemeras displayed throughout the three seating areas. I had the perfect cappuccino with just the right amount of espresso, milk and creamy microfoam. The baked goods, like kouign-amann and canele, are made fresh daily along with a small lunch menu. I definitely would stay near a Terarosa on my next trip to Seoul, to fulfill my morning cravings for coffee with a Parisian pastry.
