Banana Tree Cafe in Seoul is probably the only place on Earth where dirt tastes as good as rainbows. The garden-themed cafe offers desserts served in actual flower pots, with accompanying spoons that resembles shovels. Who else could have thought of this plating method? Only the Koreans. Remember to grab a few insta-worthy shots of your blooms in Banana Tree Cafe before digging in!
2. Ddo-ong Cafe
Even the most unpalatable dishes becomes appetising with Ddo-ong Cafe. Ddong, which literally translates to poop in Korean, is Ddo-ong Cafe‘s selling point — drinks are served in ceramic toilet mugs while food is shaped uncannily like stools. But that’s not all. Ddo-ong Cafe is decked with quirky ornaments that further accentuates its poop concept. We gotta give Ddo-ong Cafe a thumbs up for its brave go at novelty.
3. Blind Alley
Cosy up with raccoons for some afternoon tea at Blind Alley Cafe in Seoul. Situated near Sookmyung Women’s University Station, Blind Alley cafe is home to friendly and playful raccoons that sure know how to sweeten up every animal lover’s day. Visitors are more than welcome to interact with the critters, but beware of sneaky paws as raccoons own quite a reputation when it comes to being professional bandits.
4. Hello Kitty Cafe
We bet all Hello Kitty fanatics are going to agree with us on this: Hello Kitty Cafe in Hongdae is one cafe that makes Seoul better than it already is. Furnished in pink from roof to floor, and even offering adorable Hello Kitty-themed menu, you know where to be for a huge dose of cuteness while on vacation in Seoul.
5. LINE Cafe
LINE Cafe — located in Garosu-sil, Seoul — will have even the most mature adults gushing over its endearing LINE characters. Ranked the first and biggest flagship LINE store in the world, LINE Cafe is a popular attraction in Seoul for both tourists and locals. Drop by the LINE cafe for a snapshot against their towering Brown bear to complete your cafe hopping experience in Seoul!
