Sona Dessert Cafe 소나 | Champagne Sugar Ball


Sona (소나) is a dessert café located in Gangnam and is famous for their beautiful sweet treats. With the many restaurants and eateries in this area, a dessert café like Sona is a great addition to the neighbourhood. Located on the second floor of a side road, Sona is well-hidden from the busy garosugil shopping street but is a convenient rest point after a full day of shopping.

Following a delightful meal at Mimi Myeonga, we stopped by Sona to have some desserts. Sona offers an extensive dessert menu, showcasing their well-loved classics and some seasonal items. As each dessert was brought out, the pastry chef presented and explained the creation. To go with their desserts, Sona also offer coffees, teas, alcoholic beverages, and some special house made options. Sona’s cakes are pretty, and some of their drinks are equally beautiful.

Sona Cafe Champagne Sugar Ball

Champagne Sugar Ball – Undoubtedly Sona’s most recognised dessert, this champagne sugar ball makes a frequent feature on social media. This beautiful handcrafted sugar ball contains within edible flowers, champagne foam, strawberry panna cotta, and fresh strawberry slices. The bauble lies on a bed of cheese cake snow. Dramatically smashing through the thin sugar exterior is fun, although it takes very little force and I severely underestimated my strength.
