This colonial factory-turned-brunch spot is considerably larger in size compared to many of the other cafés and restaurants located in Mullae-dong. The venue has managed to keep its warehouse-type atmosphere, yet offers a refined vibe with tasteful furniture and simple lightings, something you don’t come across all that often in the area. Operated by a coffee enthusiast-owner, La Crescenta offers great coffee as well as a list of quite unique brunch menus (take, for example Kahlua French Toast, London Earl Grey Pancake and Italian Tom Yum Kung).
The house specialty is the Spicy Bacon Pasta. It’s got a good amount of spices, large pieces of bacon and perfectly-cooked pasta. If you’ve got a sweet tooth, you can go for the Crème Brûlée Pancake, which is well- delivered with a nice sugar crust and fresh custard. It is quite filling and... very sweet. If you don’t want slight bitterness added to your bite, ditch the caramelized (unripe) banana, though.
