Sweet Step: Coffee and Bread in Pohang, South Korea

Diana Chan February 23, 2014 Bakery, Cafe, Pohang, Three Beakers


When we were in Pohang, M’s mom showed us a cute coffee shop called Sweet Step. They serve up artisan coffee and bake their own pastries. Whats great about this place is that they even roast their own beans.

A lot of locals love this place because its different that all the other coffee chains out there.


The inside is quite huge! There’s patio seating and 2 floors of seating too.


Lots of macarons.


Doremon bread!


They have a siphon coffee maker on display. Looks pretty darn cool


They also sell various coffee gadgets too.


The counters menu has some english, so you will be able to make your order easily with no problems.


Coffee Macaron (2,000 won = $2CDN) was a cool treat to pair with coffee. I looked pretty.


It was also humongous. I’ve never seen a macaron this big. Unfortunately, the macaroon was not very good. It was hard and chewy. A good macaron should have a smooth, crisp shell and a moist, chewy interior.


Affogato is what M ordered. It comes with a scoop of vanilla Haagan Daaz ice cream and a shot of espresso. You pour the espresso on top of the ice cream and its so delicious! A very Italian treat.


Iced Caramel Macchiato is what Ms mom ordered. Looked very pretty and she said it tasted very good.


Americano Misto is what I tried to order, but I don’t think they understood what I wanted. I think this drink got lost in translation. I think next time I will stick with a latte or cappuccino.

Overall, we did enjoy the cafe. It’s a perfect place to chill in the afternoon over some coffee and treats. Ambiance was perfect and there are tons of seats.

We Rate Sweet Step
