Review Summary:

This tiny, tiny little place at Hannam Ogari serves up a mean breakfast without mean prices.  The owner worked in breakfast slopshops in America and brings some real good breakfast without the prissiness that has diseased the Korean brunch scene.  The pancakes are the stars, and there are many ways to have them, accompanied by housemade patty sausages.  The big find is the Eggs Benedict with two delicately poached eggs with a thick lemony hollandaise on top, all for around 9,000 won--possibly the only Eggs Benedict you'll find in Seoul for under 10,000 won and much cheaper than the 20,000 won plus the hotels charge, yet the quality competes with the best of them.

UPDATE: POS has since changed ownership, and the service and food have taken a serious nosedive. The big issues is that they're a Sunday brunch place that's closed on Sundays. They don't understand nor care to understand the spirit behind the cuisine they are mimicking. The service is brusk and slow. The food comes out cold, even though they don't have many tables. The value-for-price has also diminished.
