Dessertree is a trendy café that offers its mostly female patrons an unforgettable dessert experience. After studying the culinary arts in France, proprietor and pâtissier Lee Hyun-hee decided to bring authentic chocolates, creams, and pastries to Seoul in the way they should be eaten: in three courses. Visitors can order à la carte, or choose the set menu, which includes coffee or tea, an amuse-bouche (sorbet made from sour cream and topped with a balsamic sauce), petit-fours (a trio of small desserts such as walnut macaroons, pecan meringue, and rose wine jelly topped with pomegranate), and a choice of a main dessert. The flavors and textures of the moelleux de chocolat cake and vanilla ice cream are playful but perfectly balanced, making it a good option for chocoholics. Although the desserts are the main draw here, the atmosphere is just as enjoyable; minimalist décor and lots of natural light create a pleasant space for dining. Grab a spot at the bar alongside gossipy groups of housewives and stylish couples to watch the chefs in action.
