Seoul’s Unique Cafes: Banana Tree
With a full-on banana concept, they say this cafe was made popular by a member of the K-pop idol group U-Kiss. Inspired by New York City’s Magnolia Bakery, one of this establishment’s most popular items is their Somsom Latte, a latte with cotton candy-covered banana inside, as well as a banana tiramisu in the shape of a flower vase, enhancing the banana theme with its interior, drinks and food.
