From Bingsoo to Bungeo-ppang (Taiyaki), Korean dessert cafes have unique sweets for you to try.
Here are 9 Korean dessert cafes you can find in Koreatowns all over the States and Canada.
1. Snowy Village
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!
Their US locations are:
- 5264 University Way NE, Seattle, WA 98105
- 827 N 10th Pl Suite B, Renton, WA 98057
- 1075 Bellevue Way NE B1, Bellevue, WA 98004

2. Spoonful Desserts
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!

They also have locations in Thailand and Cambodia.

6. MuMu Bakery & Cafe
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!

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