#1 France Ruelle de Paris
Meaning "Small Alleyway of Paris", Ruelle de Paris is a small couple-run bakery near Nambu Bus Terminal Station. Made with imported French ingredients, the bread of this bakery retains its authentic French taste. The bakery's signature menu is their buttery crescent-shaped croissant. Their ciabatta and baguette are also popular menus beloved by both Korean and French customers.
Passed down through three generations, The Baker’s Table serves as a bakery and casual dining restaurant. For the past 10 years, this bakery has stood in Gyeongnidan-gil making traditional German rye bread. Here, visitors can enjoy bread, pasta, soup, and even schnitzel, a German specialty. However, their most beloved menu is their pretzels, a hard baked good shaped in the form of a knot. Enjoy the unique taste of German baked goods surrounded by the delicious smell of baking breads.
Located in Seochon, Jongno-gu, Scoff is a British dessert bakery and café with red brick walls and blue doors. Their signature menu consists of lemon cake, brownie, and scones which are all hand-baked by the British owner himself. Boasting of big serving sizes at an affordable price, the bakery does not use substitute ingredients like powder and vegetable butter, allowing the authentic taste of the original ingredients to seep through into the final product. Offering a great scenic view of Seochon’s hanok rooftops, the second floor of this building is a great place to sit back and enjoy the assortment of bread, jam, butter, and beverages sold on the first floor.
Aoitori is a bakery operated by Japanese baking professional Susumu Kobayashi. Although there are many places to enjoy European bread in Seoul, it’s rare to find a place offering Japanese bread. Although their melon bread and mentaiko bread are popular, their signature menu is their yakisoba bread. Starting from 8 am, bread are baked and put out on display every 30 minute, allowing visitors to enjoy a variety of freshly baked bread throughout the day.
