Cafe Layered (Bukchon store)
Layered (Anguk) is a cafe close to Anguk Station that I stopped into after a trip to Bukchon. The scones were wonderful, and the cafe had a charming, London-European vibe.
I went there on a weekday at about 2 p.m. I usually just visit my regular cafe when I visit Anguk-dong, but a friend who accompanied me this time suggested to visit the Cafe Layered instead. Ladies in particular would adore this place because of its beauty and charm. In addition, there were many international visitors.
I opened the door hoping to find a seat, but there were many people there. Thankfully, one of the tables was available.
Though hot black tea sounded nice, I ended up getting a Latte instead. Tea pairs well with sweet treats like cakes and scones, and there are many varieties to try.
According to the information, it is said that pets are not allowed inside.
While I went with an iced latte, my friend had hot honey lemon tea because she isn't a coffee drinker. I started picking out different kinds of scones because this cafe is well-known for its scones.
I was overwhelmed by the variety and couldn't decide what to eat.
Instead of trying the Earl gray scones, I decided to go with the Earl gray cake. A friend of mine who accompanied me choose the blueberry scone.
The Hanok (Korean traditional house) has been given a touch of London, Europe, which makes it incredibly hip. Many tourists were also present.
The bricks are left plain, just like they were in the old cafes of Seongsu-dong. The simple, vintage look works nicely in a contemporary atmosphere.
A lot of cafés can be found in the vicinity of Anguk Station, but this one stands out for its pleasant ambiance thanks to its decor, which is reminiscent of a European family house in London. The scones are fluffy and flavorful, too.
Blueberry Scone and Earl Gray Cake
The cakes are massive in size. It was just the right amount for two people to share.
The scones tasted amazing and an additional flavor can be experienced by spreading Earl Gray cream on a scone. Earl gray cake was also delicious. It's not overly sweet and can still be enjoyed by everybody.
Cafe Layered can be reached in 2-3 minutes from the Anguk Station station, and it is easy to find because there is the famous Knotted (Doughnut) nearby. It is a must-go place if you find yourself in Bukchon, Jongno.
I will be returning to this café because of the wonderful scones, charming decor, and pleasant service. You should bring your partner because it's a terrific place for a date.
