As the title says. There is nothing landmark or groundbreaking about this brunch, it tastes not quite American (hot dog instead of real sausage), nothing is salted, and 17,000+ per entree for super basic food. For that price they could at least include coffee.

During our stay we visited "The Flying Pan" twice and it was amazing every time. The staff is very friendly and helpfull, the food very good, various pancakes and sandwiches. We loved the avocado Sandwich. I can only recommend.

Wow, so good. Paid 18,000won for poached eggs and salmon without the bread (good gluten free option), and 5,000 for cold brew coffee and it was worth it. Friends got omelet, crepe, and banana French toast.

I got the flying breakfast and friend got the omelette. Both of them were very filling and tasty! The pancakes were the best I've had near Itaewon area.

Neighboring the immense Yongsan American Garrison,
Itaewon was once shunned by locals as a seedy, red
light district. But within the past few years, Itaewon
and its surrounding neighborhoods such as Kyunglidan
and Haebangchong have undergone a major revival to
quickly become one of Seoul’s hottest areas. Here,

I don't think you can, but we went around 11am on a Thursday and there were plenty of tables available. I'm sure weekends are busier.
