As a cafe lover, I am sure you used to scroll Instagram or Naver to find any cafe that grabs your eyes. It happens to me too. And today I would love to introduce you to one of the hottest cafes in Seoul that might worth your visit. It is the Seoulism cafe.
It has been a famous place for people to hang out with friends, or for the very famous Instagram photo.
When I first visited the cafe, I actually can’t find the way to it because I don’t know that it is located on the sixth floor of the building. There is a lift where customers can use to go up and down from the cafe.
How does the cafe look like?
The cafe is quite big itself. Once you enter the cafe, you can order foods or drinks at the counter beside the entrance. The price is a little bit expensive compared to other cafes. But, I am sure it is worth it because the cafe is really beautiful and decorated in a high-class way.
The seats might be fully occupied if you visit the cafe during peak seasons like weekends. And you need to wait for your turn at the waiting section.
You can find a lot of selfie mirrors in the cafe where people used to take pictures. Besides, there is also a lot of plant decorations in the cafe. The atmosphere is really nice for couples to have a romantic date, and students to study there. Plus, since it is located on the sixth floor, you can seat beside the window where you can have a view of the whole city. On the other side of the cafe, there is also a photo booth where they provide stuff like a violin for you to take pictures of. If you wish to get your pictures printed out, there is also a machine beside where you can take pictures with your friends and straight away print them out after you took them.
The secret gems at the cafe
So, now you had known briefly about the interior of the cafe. And you must be curious about the secret place that Instagrammer used to take pictures at. It is actually just located on the rooftop of the cafes. There is a space outside the cafes where seats are also available. And you can find a staircase beside the space where you can go up to the rooftop. Honestly, there is nothing much on there, except a “Seoul” word up there. And you can see Lotte World Tower behind the word. So, it became a famous spot where people love to take pictures whenever they visit the cafe. If you wish to have a better and nicer picture, you should visit the place in the evening or at night. The lights will lit the night up and make your picture more stunning.
It also provides one of the best views of the city
Cafe Seoulism is a very unique cafe that offers one of the best views in the city. The atmosphere is something special, and while the location makes it harder to access, it also places it in an area that many people wouldn’t otherwise visit.
The biggest drawback of Cafe Seoulism is its popularity. It has quickly become one of the most popular Instagram photos in Seoul, and as such, it attracts very large crowds. However, this is something that can definitely be avoided with some planning.
The prices are on the higher end, but you get more than just a coffee when you visit Seoulism.
