Gyeongbokgung Seochon Dessert Cafe:Astarte & relax Taste

The drinks will not be discussed in detail in this post. I will directly jump into the desserts and cakes. After all, Gyeongbokgung Dessert Café: Astarte & relax is the most famous cafe for its delicate desserts and cakes in town.

바닐라 피칸 에클레어
Vanilla pecan eclair|6,000 Won

When you have a bite of Vanilla Pecan eclair, you will taste the soft inner fillings with a creamy texture. I thought the crushed walnut on the top of the eclair was a bit weird at first, but this added more crunchiness.

프로마쥬 블랑Fromage Blanc|6,000 KRW

This dessert is also very fresh and tasty. The upper decoration appears to be very cute. The raspberry is drizzled on the top of the cake. This cake includes a macaron too! If you are a fruity, sweet dessert lover, I would go with this cake.

퍼지 쇼콜라 Fudge Chocolat|5,500 Won

This dessert was recommended by the store owner. This cake has a rich chocolate flavor and its taste resembles the bittersweet dark chocolate. It tastes sweet, but not too sweet. Just on Point! If you are a chocolate lover, this Fudge Chololate cake will be perfect choice.

After eating the cake at Gyeongbokgung Seochon Dessert Cafe: Astarte & relax, I always feel energized to go back to work. Not only you can take lovely selfies at this cafe, but you will be immersed in the serene and peaceful atmosphere before you head out to busy streets in Seoul. It's also a good place to chill in your hanbok. Stop by this cafe with a group of friends for a coffee and dessert break. You deserve this break.
