Have you ever accidentally found a unique place? Some time ago, when I was traveling to Gwangju I was walking with my friends and saw a pretty cafe at the end of the road. This cafe has a European architectural style in terms of both exterior and interior. We saw it accidentally during the sunset and it looked really pretty. So, we decided to stop by. But, to our surprise, this cottage core cafe is actually a national chain!
This cottage core cafe chain is called 79 Founyard. The main color of the cafe is green turquoise and it looks really cute! At the entrance, they display the replica of breads and desserts. The cafe also has a few vintage touches. The cafe is not that big so it is good to stop by for a little while to have a chit-chat with your friends. When I visited the cafe, it wasn’t crowded. There was only my friend and I and another customer.
Our Experience at the Cottage Core Cafe Chain
We ordered a cookie, red velvet cake, caramel latte, and grape tea. The price was reasonable. Well, for the cake it tasted just the same as any other cafe but I quite enjoyed the caramel latte.
They put a cream on top of the coffee and it tasted bittersweet. Even the serving plate was turquoise. It was so pretty and looked delicious. They also had a birthday cake with cute animal characters. And, if you take your order to go, you will get a cute instagramable box. They have varieties of cookies and beverages, so you have plenty to choose from.
The size of this cafe was not that big, but every corner was really appealing to be photographed. For example, the center table in front of the cashier. There are retro books, accessories, antique lamps, dolls, and pretty flowers. We sat in the window seat because the scenery was good during the sunset, and Gwangju was rainy that day. So, we took a bunch of pictures and we were so happy because it turned out very good.
The good thing about this cafe is that you can also find 79 Founyard in other cities in Korea. It looks like this is a cafe franchise because there are other branches in Seoul (several places), Gangwondo, Gunsan, Asan, and many other cities. The design and menu looks the same, so you can visit them in one of the mentioned cities. It looks like this cafe has gained popularity because of their unique design and delicious menu. The color is pretty eye-catching and unique compared to other themed cafes in Korea. So you should try it once.
