One way to melt a frozen body and mind. Heading to a âgallery cafeâ where you can enjoy a warm space, delicious food, and an exhibition walk all at once. From relaxing views to places where you can do great writing! I found a total of 5 gallery-type cafes that only I wanted to know.
1. Scenery of a mural village setting beyond painting, 'Minari House' in Ehwa-dong, Seoul

â²Location: 3, Ihwahwa-ro 1na-gil, Jongno-gu, Seoul
â²Business hours: 12:00 – 20:00 every day
â²Price: Americano 4,000 won, hot chocolate 6,000 won, green tea latte 6,000 won
â²Testimonial (Hannah, the god of food): A place where you can just sit back and relax while drinking coffee. It's hard to get to the hillside, but it's a really nice place to see the âpainting shopâ sign in front of the cafe house. A place full of sunshine, paintings, and relaxation. A place only I want to know. A place where only those who go will go, even if you let me know.
2. The quiet sensibility of hanok between glass , 'Hoard Cafe & Gallery' in Namchang-dong, Seoul

â²Location: Hoard, 54-3, Yulgok-ro 1-gil, Jongno-gu, Seoul
â²Opening hours: 11:00 to 21:00 every day, closed on Mondays
â²Price: Americano 4,500 won, cafe latte 5,500 won, apple cinnamon tea 7,000 won
â²Review (Shikigin Beer Kwangchil): I'm happy that there are still places worth visiting in Samcheong-dong. I thought the photo zone famous on Instagram would be noisy, but when I went there on a weekday, fortunately, the exhibition hall on the 2nd floor was quiet! The coffee seems to use Fritz beans, and there's a restaurant called Hoard's right next door, so I'd recommend it for a date.
3. Cafe & bar with unique interior, 'Cafe Picnic' in Namchang-dong, Seoul

â²Review (Chairman Shikishin): Daelim Warehouse… A house where you get carried away by the atmosphere rather than the taste~ Above all, I felt that it was very nice to make use of the existing building and interior~ The coffee flavor is normal, but the atmosphere enhances the taste of the coffee even more hehe, it's a great place for a date~
