Amazing food. Came For the first time with my sister when she came to visit me in korea. The banana encrusted French toast is the best French toast I've ever had. I dream about it still.

We havent been able to find a good brunch...this place was awesome. Portions were huge so you could split a dish to save some money. Overall we are going back for sure.

Pretty close to an American brunch. I ordered the Choco pancakes which was delicious and it has bars of chocolate on it. Scrambled eggs were just perfect and as it should be. My friend got the salmon salad and it was huge and delicious. Excellent service and menu is all in English

I've been deployed and that is the only reason it's been a year since we've eaten here. Great food at a great price. The place was packed but we got in so unless you go before 11 you might wait. I had the open farmer's omelet. It was absolutely delicious. Best breakfast in Itaewon.

We were looking for breakfast in Seoul and found Flying Pan Blue on an Internet search. The food was fantastic according to all. We had the open omelette, the French toast and eggs benedict. All the food was delicious and well presented. The portions were way too big for us though. The ambiance was nice but not amazing. Other food... More

It's a place a bit hidden (down in the basement). It's a breakfast place with decent offer. The portion is fairly big and looks great! Waiter spoke good English and was friendly. The food was tasty too. For a coffee + breakfast (no juice or coffee is included in the breakfast price, just a glass of tap water) you'll spend... More

Loved this place! We went for a late breakfast and we really pleased with everything. The ingredients were very high-end, looked beautiful, and tasted great. The atmosphere is fun and quirky.

Ate here with my wife and daughter this morning for brunch. First things first, the place is hard to find! It's in the basement of the building and doesn't have very prominent signage. Entry is from the street next to the Hamilton Hotel. The food was good, but lacked seasoning. I had the eggs and avocado with smoked salmon and... More

I love to swing by the Flying Pan Blue for brunch on the weekends. It's stylish and cosy and the portions are decent. I recommend the Eggs Benedict or the Chicken Avocado sandwich!

Staying in Itaewon

Neighbourhood Profile
Neighboring the immense Yongsan American Garrison, Itaewon was once shunned by locals as a seedy, red light district. But within the past few years, Itaewon and its surrounding neighborhoods such as Kyunglidan and Haebangchong have undergone a major revival to quickly become one of Seoul’s hottest areas. Here, trendy international restaurants dot the area alongside hip lounge bars and some of Seoul’s hottest club venues. After dark, Itaewon comes into its own as one of Seoul’s top party scenes. The crowd is a fascinating patchwork of all backgrounds and identities, including a small but thriving Muslim community (centered on Korea’s sole mosque), the LGBT community (with a string of popular bars and clubs), and a wide range of ethnicities and cultures scattered around. Those seeking a quiet respite should head towards the eastern end, in Hannam-dong, which not only has one of Korea’s best art museums, the Leeum Samsung Museum of Art, but plenty of mid-range to upscale restaurants and cafes.
