Freshly-baked scones with traditional British recipe at Cafe Layered

Within the culturally-rich neighborhood of Seoul lays a cafe that wields the secret recipe to traditional British scones and cakes.

Cafe Layered is a cafe in Seoul, Korea, located near Bukchon Hanok Village and Gyeongbokgung Palace.

The aroma of freshly-baked scones lures you through its front doors, where you’ll be greeted by not one, not two, but at least ten types of scones.

We’re talking Blueberry Compote, Cinnamon Pecan, Earl Grey, Spring Onion Cream Cheese… All priced between ₩4,500-₩5,500

Gazing at the other scones while I munched on the Cranberry Cream Cheese (₩4,500), I noticed that this variation was probably the closest to a plain scone. The cranberries were disparate from the scone, and the cream cheese was packed tightly in the middle.

Perhaps, a gooier option, such as the Earl Grey (4,800) or Blueberry Compote (4,800), would have faired better. Nonetheless, the texture was on point. Crunchy outside, moist inside, and of a reasonable size.

Aside from scones, Cafe Layered also serves traditional British cakes such as the Victoria Homemade British Cake (₩7,500).
