BRCD, otherwise known in its full name of ‘Bread is Ready, Coffee is Done’ is perhaps the best non-misfire usage of English in Korea’s cafe brand industry.
With four locations in Seoul, at areas such as Star City, another near Gangnam District Office, one in Cheongdam, and last one north of the Han in Gwanghwamun, this is no ordinary cafe selling bread and coffee. Although they do have a great bakery, their menu also boasts some great burgers, flatbreads, and pastas.
Some further poking around on the net yielded some franchising (or cloning?) attempt of a BRCD in Phnom Penh that lasted less than a year. But here’s hoping that BRCD starts branching its concept out in Korea.
Anyone needing a map or directions to one of their 4 locations, please leave a comment below.
