Therefore, if you are looking for a cafe in which you can simply relax, this is the place for you!
An Instagrammable Cafe
Waiting for its opening, there is not a single day in which there is no photography enthusiasts looking around the place to find the best picture spot. That was also my case.
I arrived an hour before its opening, and that is how I noticed, that this cafe is always ready beforehand to receive their clients. We were about 5 people waiting before it started to rain. Since the cafe staff was already inside, they let us come in half hour before planned.
Since it is a Hanok-style cafe, clients must take off our shoes. And of course, be pretty careful about tripods, since the floor is made of wood.
is it instagrammable?
This cafe indeed is instagrammable! The neat architecture makes every corner worth photographing. The irregular wood shapes from the ceiling, along with the warm combination of the colors, makes it eye-catching. Hence, the cold color from the outside bushes makes it stand out even more.
The cafe has different sections. At the entrance, there is only a few tables before you come across some private rooms. Then, you will find a section in which there is a pond with Koi fishes! As expected, this is the most popular spot for photos.
Because of this, it is important to arrive early if you want to calmly take pictures with no rush. Plus, this way you will be able to sit down in the nearest table to it.
It is important to mention that to be able to take pictures inside, you must at least order a cup of tea from the menu. Even though they have other options like cake and sweets, your ticket to take pictures is the cup of tea.
Lastly, they have a bigger private room at the back. It seems that these private rooms, are given in first-come, first-serve basis. So if you are looking for a cafe to hang out with your friends, this place has plenty space for all of you!
They sell various types of tea. It might be intimidating to read everything in korean, but at least, my experience was good. Because the staff spoke english. Hence, they explained to me the difference between all type of teas so I can choose the one from my liking.
With this in mind, do not be scared to ask for help!
In addition, they honey cake and Gyeongdan (경단) appart. The gyeongdan is a type of tteok made of glutinous rice
It is worth to mention that the tea comes in a set. When you order tea, it includes some gyeongdan.
Since it was quite difficult to choose, I only told them to bring me the most popular tea. Which came in a set as expected. The flavor of it, was a combination between sour and sweet. I highly recommend you to try it out! Just ask them to bring you the most ordered tea.
Even walking from the bus stop to this place, it is pretty relaxing. This is because it is in a countryside area. You will walk in a path of nature before arriving. Surely, enjoying the sound of water coming from the fall, which is nearby the cafe.
It is easy to find since there is not much to see around. Although the cafe is between the bushes and not at the road side. Because of this, we attached pictures of how it looks like from outside, so you do not get lost.
