HELLO KOREA 2022/2023: Soha Salt Pond

[Travel in December 2022 – January 2023]

I’m thrilled to introduce you to this place! It’s going to become one of my all-time favorite cafes, right up there with 동백양과점. No trip to Korea is complete without visiting these cafes. It’s going to be a challenge on every trip because I have my go-to cafes and new ones to discover. Whether it’s my appetite or my budget, or maybe both, I’ll need to keep up! Haha 🙂

Salt Pond with mountain of “salt”

The cafe is incredibly popular, and I had to wait for about 30 minutes for the bread to be baked before I could find a seat. I went from feeling very full to being ready for a delicious piece of bread, haha!

I was almost tempted to return here the next day, haha!

Salt View. hahaha

The menu had me eagerly anticipating trying the truffle and cheese bun!

Haha, I didn’t have much of a choice! I ended up selecting the next freshly baked bun from the oven.



Many interesting seat around

While waiting for the drinks

The baristas were dedicated to crafting the best drinks for each customer, and I was really hoping mine turned out great!

The bread is here first!

As for my drink, the Salted Strawberry Squash was truly unique, and I absolutely loved it. Perhaps I should make it a tradition to order this drink whenever I’m in Korea! 🙂

The bread was incredibly fresh and soft, with a buttery interior and a touch of salt on the outside. It’s just bread, but it tasted so delicious!

The visual setting was absolutely on point. It was truly splendid! I genuinely believe Koreans have a special talent in this! 🙂

As I was leaving, I noticed pastries being restocked, and when I looked at the queue, it was quite evident that people were willing to wait! 🙂
