Located in Ikseon-dong Hanok Village, Cheong Su Dang is a incredibly beautiful coffee and dessert cafe housed in a traditional facade.
For those of you who haven’t been to Ikeson-dong, it is a trendy neighbourhood which has plenty of gorgeous cafes, local shops and under-the-radar eateries.
If you are planning to cafe hop in Seoul, you definitely have to add Cheong Su Dang to your list of cafes to visit in Seoul.
To enter the cafe, you have to walk across a flight of stone steps across a small pond which is surrounded by bamboo and lanterns.
The cafe is divided into two main areas. You can opt for the floor seating which comes with a view of the garden.
If you are lazy to take off your shoes, you can try your luck to get a seat at the main table which comes with a pretty plant display as the centrepiece.
They serve coffee, matcha, black tea and fruit drinks and prices range between 5,800 to 7,500 won.
There are six desserts (13,000 – 20,000 won) on Cheong Su Dang’s menu and they include:
- Original Souffle Castella
- Mugwort Souffle Castella
- Strawberry Compote Souffle Castella
- Black Sesame Fromage Cake
- Matcha Fromage Cake
- Strawberry Cake
To be honest, Cheong Su Dang’s drinks and cakes are nothing special, but the interior is so charming.
