Piece Montee Patissier in Suwon

Let's take a look at Pièce Montée Patisserie (삐에스몽테 제빵소), a charming bakery and café in Suwon, Gyeonggi Province, South Korea.

I had never heard of this beautiful place before, but my wife Regina suggested I visit it, as it's become quite popular on Korean social media.

So, while I was in the area after exploring Yongjusa Temple in Hwaseong City, I decided to drop by, maybe have a cup of coffee, and take some photos for this website.

Finding it took me a little while, but it was worth the effort! They had a wide variety of bread, cakes, snacks, coffee, and other beverages.

Well, check it out below...

Its name combines modern urban vibes with traditional aesthetics, giving it a distinct character that sets it apart from other cafes in the area.
