Has travelling in Korea got you addicted to cafe culture? If you’re travelling to Daegu, you should definitely try out these 4 incredible cafes! Let’s take a look at 4 Downtown Daegu Cafes.
TARR TARR, a cute Daegu cafe that is known for its various tarts and sweets. If you love tarts, especially ones with fruits this is your place! It also has a very cozy 2nd-floor seating area where you can snuggle with an adorable oversized bear or watch downtowners walk on by.
The variety in desserts ranged from fruit tarts, egg tarts, cakes, and more. The drinks included many coffees, teas, and even smoothies. I tried the citrus tart and a toffee nut latte. Both were equally yummy.
E.D.L Brunch House
EDL brunch house reminds me of a cute cafe back in New York City with its brick storefront. Its interior decor is chill and relaxing with lots of greens and blues. Unfortunately, when I went they were sold out of the french toast (must be a hot commodity) so I decided to get the E.D.L brunch which included eggs, sausage, toast, and more. It was tasty and fulfilled some of my brunch needs, minus the bottomless mimosas. I also got half a croffle (croissant/waffle hybrid) and the EDL latte which was super-rich, creamy, and sweet. The croffle is meant for you to dunk into your latte and I happily did so. It’s like dunking an oreo into a fresh glass of milk but better.
The 79 Founyard cafe shines bright in Tiffany blue and you can spot it a mile away due to its vibrance. Beautiful detailed windows and doors, it’s hard not to go inside. Once you are you see different kinds of treats like cake, and various croffles along with drinks of all sorts like coffee, and tea. I tried a delicious apple aid and carrot cake. You can also find this cafe in Seoul too!
My favorite part was waiting out the summer rain inside and seeing the green vines draped along the wall. The decor is reminiscent of a vintage store in the 1900s. I’ll definitely be making my way back here sometime soon.
Last but not least is one of my favorites to date, Evglw. The cafe Everglow (Evglw for short) got its name from a Coldplay song, of which the owners are big fans. On the outside nothing draws you in besides the cute vintage bike and nice big window. The storefront is not colorful like the previous one, but you can tell they mean serious coffee business once you step inside. The coffee drips to perfection and the cakes are moist and sweet. I loved my creamy matcha latte and oreo cake and felt almost compelled to buy another. If you want to hang around a little longer they also have an upstairs area that’s honestly bigger and better than what I could imagine. The atmosphere reminds me of a really cool hipster library and the book nerd in me loves it.
This list can honestly go on for days because Daegu, especially downtown Daegu has countless cafes. All the ones mentioned above aren’t too far from Daegu train station, so you could stop by after you travel for a sweet pick me up.
