Ha Roo Baghn Korean Bakery

I admit it. I love a good Korean bakery. And what’s not to love? They usually have French cakes, pastries with Asian inspired fillings like bean paste or sweet potato, great coffee drinks, a variety of drinks including bubble teas and smoothies, and they are always scrupulously clean. And when you are very, very lucky, they also serve gelato.

At Ha Roo Baghn you can consider yourself very lucky. They have it all, even the gelato, plus some lovely wedding cakes on display. The bakery is located near Gwinnett Place Mall, beside JeJu Sauna, a Korean spa modeled after a traditional bathing house that my friends rave about.

The variety of pastries changes constantly so you never know what you may find. Highlights this day include a Steamed bun, topped with adzuki peas and sweet potato. It was surprisingly sweet and the steaming leaves a doughy texture ($2.50). Double Chocolate Cake that was totally black, darker than any pastry I’ve ever seen. It was surprisingly light (good) and there wasn’t a strong chocolate flavor (bad). There’s never enough cream between the layers, is there? (Give it up. An Asian bakery is not the place to cure chocolate cravings.) The Baguette Pizza is an international meeting ground with influences from Italian, French and Asia. There’s tomato sauce, corn, green pepper, a mild sausage (similar to Vienna sausages) on a baguette and topped with a small amount of cheese. Some have chunks of sweet potato.

The WiFi here is good, but what’s better are the number of outlets available. You can plug in from every seat in the house.

But the hard part, if you don’t read Korean, is finding the name of this restaurant. The word “Bakery” is prominent, enough, but it’s hard to read the name on the sign outside, impossible when the logo is shrunk to fit onto their business card. I got the name off the sales receipt. On the other hand, does that matter?
