South Korea is known for having some of the most extravagant cafes in the world. However, even amongst all of the extravagance, this cafe has become known for its elegant interior design. However, Green Holiday has both delicious drinks and desserts as well as a beautiful interior and a plus bonus – stunning scenery.
Green Holiday is a cafe is located on Incheon’s Ganghwa island. What makes this cafe so special in my opinion is that it is surrounded by nature. A simple visit could help you unwind and take a break. Although Green Holiday is just a regular cafe, both the inside and outside, it looked like it came straight out of a classic Parisian film. I loved the extravagance of the cafe. It is worth the trip!
Green Holiday Exterior
The outside of the cafe is stunning – no matter the season. The architecture is done in a pleasantly foreign style. It is reminiscent of buildings commonly seen in countries surrounding the Mediterranean sea And Southern California. Not to mention, the stunning fountains. Along the fountains’ bases are majestic statues like something straight out of ancient Greece.
Although the place is beautiful and surrounded by nature all year round, nothing can beat Green Holiday in Spring. There are lush gardens filled with flowers of every color, and fresh vegetables and fruits hanging from vines ready to be plucked and popped in your mouth.
Plus, another rare feature of this cafe, is that it is frequently visited by wildlife. Its somewhat remote location and bountiful greenery invite all sorts of tiny critters – from birds to bumblebees.
Green Holiday Interior
The inside of the cafe was warm and cozy, with many cute decorations that reminded me of a resort where my family and I went a few years ago.
The store was listed as a cafe, but when I arrived, I discovered that you could order actual food such as pasta, steak pizza, and salad. Additionally, I was also pleasantly surprised to discover that Green Holiday was not only a cafe but also a kitchen and lifestyle store.
The menu at Green Holiday was extensive. But, it was a little bit expensive. They sell western-style dishes, mostly of Italian origin. On the menu, there was risotto, pasta, salad, pizza, and steak. Most items were in the 20,000 won range per plate. However, the steak sets were 99,000 won.
On the other hand, the cafe was typically priced. An americano was 5,500 won and most other drinks were in the 6,000 to 8,000 won range. They also sell lots of delicious fresh-baked goodies that change seasonally.
I highly recommend visiting the cafe in the late afternoon as the sun begins to set. This is due to the fact that the location has the most beautiful view during the sunset. Which makes it ideal for going out and taking pictures. However, during springtime, getting there right at opening and spending the day enjoying the sunshine in the garden is also ideal. Additionally, they do delivery for their delicious baked goods which is why I would like to give Green Holiday 5 out of 5.
