Idle Moments | Mapo-gu, Seoul


A smaller, second-floor cafe, Idle Moments is known by the sophisticated, Europe-trekking Koreans who come here for the authentic Viennese Coffee. The whipped-cream topping impressive to taste, with the lemon juice hand-squeezed each day and the heavy cream whipped by hand rather than machine.

Fluttering, translucent white curtains, fresh flowers, and an open plan kitchen make for a lovely environment.  The only way to add to your experience here would be to order a custard pudding, creamy with that perfect burnt caramel-fudgey flavor on the top, these sell out quickly as they cafe makes a limited amount each day.

If the pudding is done for the day, we recommend the French-style peach tart, a generous amount of butter and love go into the layers of fille pastry and thinly-sliced Korean white peach.
