What I love about Cafe De Soul is their ambiance; really warm and homey. Their furniture are wooden, which matches the interior of the place. It's the typical cute Korean cafe, complete with dinky decor. Another thing I love about this place is their incredibly fast wifi. 

I recommend getting their chicken bibimbap and adding the spicy paste. Their hot latte is also good. For dessert, try getting the Bing-Soo, a big bowl of ice cream and beans.

This is the perfect place to chill, hang out, or study with your friends - or alone.

My second visit. I was here days ago they said they are on a soft opening. Guess they closed before for maintenance or something. I was looking forward to order the green tea bingsoo but they said it will be available after 4hrs 128148 They don't have ice for it during that time. Yun talaga pinunta ko disappointed talaga. My friend and I had a hard time choosing what to order cause they don't have a menu and only a few drinks were available. So yea got myself iced caramel macchiato, mocha blended drink for my friend.. Also got a slice of their reese's peanut butter pie and oreo cheesecake. Tastes okay pero sana nag cbtl or sbux nalang kami. The cheesecake/pie parang tagal na nakastore sa fridge.. My first visit here was way better. 128078 Ambiance is the only thing that never changed.

My chill spot! Too bad I heard they're closing na. :(
Anyway, let me share pa rin.
This was one of my favorite chill spots when I was still at Taft. They had a variety of drinks, from coffee to mocktails. They also had good food. I especially loved the savory waffles and their cakes! I already miss the marshmallow cake, and the choco lava cake. Yum! Aside from that, the place was really nice. I loved the interior. They had nice furniture, a tablet attached to some of their tables, and sockets under the tables. Perfect for students like me who bring their gadgets. Lastly, the staff was nice. They were friendly and approachable.
All in all, good food and drinks, pretty interiors, good service. I will miss Cafe de Seoul!

Heard mixed reviews about this place, particularly my friend who constantly bashes their food and drink but keeps going there anyway for the ambiance. Cafe De Seoul has a stereotypical, minimalistic but cutesy interior that would look like any other Japanese or Korean cafe. Wifi is free and fast and in case you don't know, some tables have Samsung tablets embedded in them for you to use!

I ordered their mango yogurt and chicken curry puff pastry, while my friend ordered their Ddalgi Sonagi mocktail and chili con carne puff pastry, which cost less than 500 php total. At first their mango yogurt reminded me of flavored cough syrup, but it's not like it was unbearable to drink. I preferred my friend's mocktail more for the mix of fruity flavors. The puff pastries themselves weren't bad either, but they were served to us cold even though I saw the waiter put them in the microwave. Also, they gave us dessert forks to eat with our dishes. They probably serve it because the forks are tiny, two-pronged and look cute, but it's the completely wrong fork to use!

All in all, I think the food is just okay. I'll probably drop by again to try their actual pastries and see if it's any better.

Most of the time, i come here (my fav tambayan in DLSU Taft) alone before my 6pm class 128096 I either order a cup of iced tea or hot coffee here to keep myself awake 128064

Having tried the Honey Citrus tea and Honey Plum tea, the barista (hmmm... how do people call these people outside starbucks?) suggested their Honey Chisandra tea today :) She tried to explain the difference of this tea with others, but... Sorry, I was overwhelmed with first day high of the students around me...

Well, honey chisandra gives me a simple combination of citrus and honey, a light refresher ;) it seems i prefer honey citrus tea more bcoz of the citrus slices u can feel after each sip :)

The ambiance never fails to make me feel so KOREA so LOVE so ROMANTIC 10084️ Next time I might try their best selling bing-soo 128541

Super sweet but I love Ddalgi Sonagi (photo attached)! Appearance is very artistic. Also tried Seoul Lady, the more you drink it, the more you'll like it.

The ambience is very okay. Quiet, great for long conversations with friends and for studying.

This chic Korean style cafe opened last March 2013 and is now making a buzz on coffee junkies like me.

I'd rate this 5 stars because of the ambience. Everywhere you look, you can't help but snap that instagrammable spot. It has a spacious place and tables are embedded with Samsung Galaxy 10 in which you could use to surf the net for free! So cool, right?

The place is so quirky and stylish that you'd want to stay here for long. I can! Even without the food and coffee. Hahaha! And by the way, their ceiling is a mirror which reflects everything on the floor. Another "cool" there!

As for their menu, it's pricey. I didn't like that much the banoffee pie and the frappe I ordered. I mean, nothing interesting for my taste buds were in it. But I guess, the whole place compensated for it.

Go here if you just wanted to hang with your geeky or bookie friends! :)
