Brunch @ Burano
Breakfast lovers are always on the hunt for good places to eat their favorite meal of the day. Being aware that not everyone falls into the breakfast lovers category, it’s good to have a restaurant in the area that isn’t just breakfast or sweets, but brunch and lunch too. Cafe Burano (카페부라노) invites people in with pictures of plates overflowing with food with everything from french toast and eggs to pasta and sandwiches. The cafe is spacious and provides seating inside as well as out on a lovely patio. As the cafe isn’t on the busy side of the street out of Hongik University subway station but out the opposite side into the neighborhood sprawling with guest houses and hostels, there is usually plenty of space to go around.
The plates come out and are true to the pictures that enticed outside. The food is filling and the only Koreanized portion on the french toast brunch platter would be the strawberry dressing on the side salad. The abundance of food on the plate is transferred into growling bellies and satisfies the eaters at the table. If you’re in the area and don’t want to head into the busy side of Hongdae, but you’re looking for a cafe that will satisfy, this is a great option.
