I bet most of you would not be unfamiliar with the name Audrey Hepburn. The actress is said to be one of the world’s most successful actresses and famous style icons of all time.
She is also a famous face in Korea. The actress’ image can be seen featured on commercials and advertisements. Even the popular Korean star IU recreated Audrey Hepburn’s classic look in her hit drama Hotel del Luna. The actress isn’t famous for no reason. She is being loved by the Koreans for her work, style as well as her humanitarianism values.
If you’re a fan of her, you should not miss out the place that I am going to introduce to you guys today!
Cafe 1953 with Audrey
Cafe 1953 With Audrey, exactly like what it sounds to be. It is a coffee shop inspired and established focusing on the theme of the British actress, Audrey Hepburn. Cafe 1953 With Audrey is located in Mullae-dong. The cafe was originally an abandoned old factory. Despite the remote industrial atmosphere outside, the inside of the cafe will make you amazed with it. The interior of the cafe is designated to portray a classic Hollywood vibe.
I like how they blend the museum elements into cafe, which is a new and unique idea to me. Asides, food and drinks, there are various collections related to Audrey Hepburn being displayed inside the cafe.
You can also find a large collection of Audrey Hepburn figurines in different costumes here.
The cafe is very large and spacious. I visited the cafe on a weekday and was surprised to see the seats were almost fully occupied.
The cafe offers a wide range of beverages and snacks. We had ice green tea latte, classic royal milk tea, Audrey handmade chocolate cake and decay rosse cake.
I highly recommend their signature menu, the Audrey handmade chocolate cake. It was said that the cake is baked according to Audrey’s original recipe. According to the book “Audrey at Home” written by Audrey’s son, Luca Dotti, this chocolate cake was her favorite pick-me-up. “Audrey Hepburn served a flourless chocolate cake on special occasions and birthdays, sprinkled with powdered sugar and accompanied by homemade whipped cream and a side dish of vanilla ice cream.“
Cafe 1953 with Audrey is a great place for a nice cup of coffee while retracing the footsteps of Audrey’s career. There is a lot to see and no doubt it is a special place for Hepburn fans to replay the memories of this aspiring actress in the Hollywood’s Golden Age.
The cafe is open from 10 a.m. to 11 p.m.
