Cafes with vegan ice cream and vegan Bingsu

This list mentions 100% vegan cafes, which serve home-made (!) ice cream🍨 and veganized bingsu🍧. Not included are locations which offer vegan options but also use dairy or other animal products. 🚫🥛 So those of you, who do not eat dairy (because of e.g. food intolerance) or who don’t speak enough Korean to customize an order, will be safe. 🌱🍦

Peoples’ tastes are subjective… Hence, all options without ratings are listed below.👇 But you can find out about my personal reviews featuring my favorites💚 in this Instagram post.

For *some* reason, ice cream or bingsu are often only available during the warmer months. But locations that offer frozen dessert all year round marked with this symbol: ☃️.
