With delicious treats like bingsoo, croissant taiyaki (a localized Japanese version of Bungeo-ppang), coffee & teas, Snowy Village is pretty popular in North America.

They sell super cute mini bingsoo which are perfect for to-go orders or solo visitors along with some interesting fusion choices like taro & oreo bingsoo.

According to Korean reviews, their Injeolmi (Koreans consider this bingsoo a classic, which is sticky rice cake covered in soybean powder for a nutty taste) and mango bingsoo are the best!

Started in St. Louis with the goal of introducing Korean cafe culture to the Midwest, Spoonful Desserts covers the greatest hits of Asian desserts including bingsoo, taiyaki, a stuffed mochi waffle and bubble tea.

Their taiyaki is so cute and perfect as a holiday treat. I’d love to go to a party with a tray of these!

3. Sul & Beans

While other Korean dessert cafes dabble in a few different cuisines, Sul & Beans specializes in authentic bingsoo and toast.

Toast in Korea is a sweet and savory snack, often eaten during breakfast. They even sell Sikhye (sweet rice punch) and Misutgaru (mixed grain drink).

Rumor has it that their Fresh Strawberry Bingsoo is to die for in summer, especially in So Cal and Las Vegas!

A major dessert chain from Busan, South Korea that will make its way to the US in March 2023.

The first branch is planned to be in San Jose, California.

No word yet on what the menu looks like, but it will most likely be adapted to the US market.

Sulbing is said to be the first Korean dessert cafe to use injeolmi in bingsoo.

They also have locations in Thailand and Cambodia.

5. LUMI Dessert Cafe

From the moment you step inside, you’ll feel like you just teleported to South Korea.

According to Korean reviews, they were super-thrilled to find this hidden gem near Seattle.

MuMu Bakery & Cafe offers a one-of-a-kind dessert experience in LA.

With jiggly cheesecakes, fluffy castellas, crunchy taiyakis, and the softest soft-serve, you’ll have plenty of options.

Most Koreans seem to go here for fresh strawberry milk, taiyaki and Instagram. The menu skews a bit sweet, but everything looks amazing in pictures.

You’ll be in paradise if you love the color pink!

7. Anko

Anko sounds Japanese, but is owned and operated by Koreans in Los Angeles.

They have a huge menu covering bingsoo, taiyaki and mochi.

You can think of it as a Korean and Japanese dessert cafe.

It’s the best stop after eating some spicy Sundubu-jjigae at BCD Tofu House in Koreatown.

8. Oakobing

Another Korean dessert cafe in Los Angeles, Oakobing also has a branch in Pasadena.

They specialize in bingsoo and are among the highest-rated of all the dessert cafes on this list.

Also, I’ve heard they offer the most bang for the buck in terms of portion size.

The most popular item on their menu is mango melon bingsoo!

  • 37 N Arroyo Pkwy, Pasadena, CA 91103

9. Myomee Coffee and Dessert Cafe

Myomee is the go-to place in Michigan for East Asian desserts.

They not only serve delicious treats, but also host Korean classes and sell K-pop merch!
