From Gunsan Yeog (train station), the very kind tourist info lady ushered us to the bus stop outside the station - exit main door, turn left and walk until you see the bus stop. Buses 11, 12, 13, 15, 16, 17, 18, 19 will take you close to this bakery - best is to inform the driver of your destination and he'll holler your cue. About a 40min ride, we arrived at the bakery. Also listed as Lee Sung Dang in romanised form, it looked old school with the words "Patisserie Boulangerie" at the shopfront. Stepping in, the 1st thing that hit us was the aroma (aaaah) and the people (ooooh) as they picked up empty trays, followed the line and bypassed the other cakes & buns until the infamous red bean and veggie bun area. And they stacked them high, as in 10 to 15-bun high. Fortunately the staff were quick in replenishing the buns.. happy days. Some people cut the queue to directly pick up the buns and were given steely glances. There was plenty of other things to pick up eg. cookies, biscuits, cakes, macaroons, etc etc. There was also pingsu (traditional korean scraped ice dessert). We also visited the other outlet next door - slightly more modern interior with western fare, pretty cakes and all. We saw a bungeoppang stove (fish shaped red-bean bread) but it wasn't fired up. There was a cafe on 1st floor and we had lattes. Overall prices were reasonable.
