This Christmas Latte is a Thing of Dreams

This Christmas Latte is a Thing of Dreams

I've talked about this cafe before, and I'll talk about it again.  All That Sweets is hands down my favorite dessert cafe on Earth.

Open Wednesday through Saturday and with only three tables, All That Sweets is something I have to plan ahead for. My friend Kayla and I would often pick a date a week in advance, wake up early, and arrive at the door before the cafe opened.  

On Halloween 2015 (a day I will never forget) we showed up about 30 minutes after opening and didn't get the Halloween cake we wanted... so now we're bitter and show up ridiculously early :)

Today I went alone so I passed on a slice of the strawberry shortcake but look how adorable is it! Their cakes are always light and creamy, though the flavors change daily!  I've seen chocolate, vanilla, and even kiwi cakes.

Instead I opted for one of their amazing macarons.  Because I came late in the day, my only option was the chocolate raspberry "merry xmas" heart macaron, but I probably would have chosen that anyway.  These flavors also vary with the season but every single one I've ever tried has been absolutely delicious.

But of course, the star of the show is my Christmas Tree Latte <3

Their lattes are amazingly intricate, and they have a dozen of them on the menu at all times.  The homemade (delicious) whipped cream is covered in melted chocolate, sprinkles, and meringue cookies.  I seriously thought I hated meringue until I tried these babies. Now I can't get enough!

They sell these for the month of December, and then usually move on to make snowflake or other winter themed lattes.  All year 'round they offer rose, raincloud, and even coral styled lattes!

This year they also introduced a gingerbread man latte that I was tempted to get, but I had to stick to my traditional tree :)

Be sure to check out their Instagram for daily updates on their baked goods and visit them here at Namseong Station!

Hours:

Wed, Thurs, Fri, Sat 11am- 6pm (remember to come early for cake/macarons!)
