I am pretty sure that you have heard of Hongdae street in Seoul, Korea. This street is near the Hongik University and the street became popular as it has so many interesting cafes and restaurants. Today, I would like to take you there to introduce the best cheesecake cafe and Italian pizza place!
#1. C27 CHEESECAKE & COFFEE
If you are a cheese and dessert lover, this place is for you! They really have 27 different types of cheesecake. It’s hard to make a choice among these many cheesecake options, so you can ask the cashier for advice. They will pick you such a dessert that after eating it you will remember the taste for a long time.
We ordered 3 types of cheesecakes: blueberry, oreo, and carrot. It was a really awesome choice. The very rich taste and probably this is the real cheesecake I’ve ever tasted. I can say with confidence that absolutely all cheesecakes in this coffee shop are delicious. The best cheesecake cafe in Hongdae.
Many people come to this cafe to try their famous cheesecakes. But unfortunately, after lunch there are a few of them (as you see in the photo). Therefore, I advise you to come before 5 pm. But if you just passed by, decided to take a break and refresh yourself with ice-americano, then come anytime. Each cafe sells different types of desserts, so I suggest you visit C27, which is located in the Shinsа. There are 3 floors and each floor has a different design. Many girls should like it because you can take beautiful photos.

#2. ROSSO 1924
There is a place in Hongdae where you can comfortably enjoy pizza.
Pizza is cooked in the oven, which is located in the same room where you are sitting. You can watch the cooks and their work. >
The room is bright and has plenty of seating.
There are not many types of pizza. We ordered 2 types of margarita and salad. The portions are small (for about 1-2 people), but the prices are very reasonable. Instead, it operates as a self-service cafe. The taste of pizza reminds real Italian. Here you can eat quickly and tasty.

#3. Hongdae street
Hongdae is an area where several universities are located nearby. Therefore, it can be called a youth area with a romantic atmosphere. There are various accessories stores, snack bars, restaurants, cosmetics and clothing stores, galleries, bars and clubs. In short, Hongdae is a fascinating place for walking, where you can have fun.
Usually, street musicians and dancers perform on the main street, thereby creating an atmosphere. But due to Covid-19, performances were temporarily canceled. You can eat street food, which is sold in such vans on the street.
