A quiet escape in the middle of a bustling city, Bear Cafe is definitely one of the best in Seoul. The combination of traditional 70-year-old Hanok exteriors and modern, minimalist interiors will make your trip worthwhile.
I was so intent on visiting Bear Cafe even if it was a little out of the way because you guys know how much I love places with a great garden ambience! Pair everything with the best beans from Coffee Libre, I might as well dub Bear Cafe as my dream cafe.
Behind the cafe is Design Eum, the publishing group that sells lifestyle publications like Bear magazine and Kinfolk Korea. Explains the overall aesthetic.
Find Bear Cafe at 24 Jahamun-ro 24-gil Jongno-gu. Took a cab straight to the location since there were 4 of us traveling anyway. But if you’re traveling alone or simply just want to take the train, you can access it via Gyeonbokgung Station as well.
