What's new

Kim’s Cafe combines Korean fusion and brunch

Korean fusion is already a delicious prospect, but combining it with the carefree, treat-yourself-ness of brunch elevates it to an even higher level.

We stopped by Kim’s Cafe the other day and were delighted to find that the cozy little spot brings the two together perfectly.

We asked our Facebook community last week if anyone could recognize where we got the burger from, and were delighted to see that there were plenty of Kim’s Cafe fans out there.

A huge shoutout to Maja Joseph, Karen Lynn, Tymchuk Dimpy, Butani Bhopal, Sara Bahreini, Madi Faiz, Travis Nguyen, Curtis Mah, and Mai Trieu for guessing correctly!
