Layered is a dessert cafe in Seoul which has an amazing scones and cakes selection. Dessert lovers are in for a real treat here.
It has the most impressive scones line-up we’ve ever seen. There are 13 different types of English scones (both savoury and sweet) as well as a dozen rustic English cakes on display.
Cafe Layered has 2 outlets in Yeonnam-dong and Bukchon (near Anguk station). You can also find it at The Hyundai Seoul’s food hall.
We dined at Cafe Layered’s outlet at Yeonnam-dong when we were exploring the quaint neighbourhood. The cafe is in a two-story bricked building which is located at 223-20 Yeonnam-dong in Mapo-gu.
Some of the scone flavours (prices range from 4,500 – 5,00 won) include:
- Classic Butter Scones
- Fresh Milk Cream Scones
- Matcha Scones
- Cranberry Cream Cheese Scones
- Sweet Pumpkin Cream Cheese Scones
- Basil Pesto Scones
- Double Chocolate Scones
- Spring Onion Cream Cheese Scones
- Cinnamon Pecan Scones
- Caramel Butter Scones
- Earl Grey Fig Scones
- Strawberry Compote Scones
Frankly, everything looked amazing and it was a challenge trying to pick from this line-up. If you like savoury scones, the Spring Onion Cream Cheese Scone is the bestseller at Cafe Layered. We had the Earl Grey Fig Scones and it was absolutely delicious.
The options for the rustic English cakes (7,500 – 8,000 won) include:
- Dark Chocolate Cake
- Carrot Cake
- Cherry Chocolate Cake
- Mango Cake
- Red Velvet Cream Cheese Cake

Do note that you need to order a drink per person regardless of the number of cakes and scones that you get.
