In recent years I have become quite the cafe connoisseur. I went to all the popular cafes, but I often found myself disappointed. Countless times I was met with long waits and mediocre coffee. However, after visiting hundreds of cafes, I have found a few gems. Here are 3 cafes nestled among Busan’s forests – the best spring cafes in Busan!
Western Chamber Coffee
The first on our list of the best spring cafes in Busan is the Western Chamber Coffee. It is surrounded by magnificent forests -the perfect escape from bustling city life. The mountain road leading up to the cafe is surrounded by Cherry Blossoms on both sides. It might just be the perfect spring dive you’ve ever been on.
Among all other spring cafes, this one feels the most like a vacation spot in its own right. The coffee shop’s exterior is designed to look like a European cottage. With a large rooftop and outdoor seating area, you can enjoy the freshest of spring breezes. This coffee shop, in my opinion, is the greatest place to visit if you want to get away and enjoy nature.
I was pleasantly impressed by the variety of their menu options. Bunch, pastry, coffee, and tea are all on the menu. The pricing is also quite reasonable, and the presentation is flawless. I would highly recommend this location for both family and group outings.

Break In Coffee
Another relaxing coffee shop to go and enjoy Busan’s spring is Break In Coffee. Both inside and out, they have fantastic seating. I found their outside seating to be diverse and distinct from those of other establishments. It’s the ideal cafe for enjoying spring. If you enjoy cherry blossoms, this is a must-visit location!

The final cafe on our list of the best spring cafes in Busan is Cafe Mandi. The coffee shop has a very appealing atmosphere, akin to that of a garden. The coffee shop’s outside is extremely spacious and tastefully designed. Despite the large size, it does not appear to be empty. This is one of the must-visit coffee shops in all of Busan, in my opinion – spring or not.
Their signature menu items are the Mandi Latte, Mandi Coldbrew, and Cream Latte as well as their Mandi Tiramisu and Carrot Cake. The most unique menu items I would like to recommend would be the sweet pumpkin cake as well as their basque cheesecake.
