"Having coffee at a Korean cafe immediately transports me into a different place."
"Inside a Korean cafe, surrounded by Koreans, hearing Korean pop music...aaahh i feel like in Seoul again."
Strathfield is one of the suburbs in Sydney Metro that has a Korea Town and the Husband and I are so glad that they have Hello Happy here. Our first Hello Happy experience was in Chatswood but Chatswood's too far away from where we live. I've known for awhile that Hello Happy had a Strathfield branch but it was only two weeks ago that we found the chance to visit.

They have mini cakes too...super cute!
One of my friends, Jojie, asked me when I shared my Tous Le Jous (Seoul, Korea) foodie entry if Sydney has a similar cake and bakery place and the answer is "Yes!" (Sorry, it took awhile to answer you, Jojie).
Hello Happy serves the yummiest cakes and pastries and makes great coffee too.
Their Strathfield branch appears to be on the more youthful side (the Chatswood branch looks more of a cafe for family) with dark lighting and cozy interiors.
I am fascinated with their little paintings on the wall.
Since we were preparing for a big Korean BBQ dinner that afternoon, the Husband and I decided to share a slice of their Chocolate Mud Cake. Rich and decadent, you can see some chocolate oozing on the side of the cake.
Caffe Latte for him and a Cafe Americano for me.
We never go home empty-handed when we visit Hello Happy. We bought three pastries and enjoyed it at home.
The Meringue Pie is an addicting wonderful creation. It's puff pastry with meringue on top.
The Almond Croissant is another favourite of mine. Buttery croissant with ALMONDS--that's the keyword there--ALMONDS! :)
The Husband enjoys the Mocha Donut, well, because it is Mocha and it had a generous topping of nuts.
