Korean cafe near Chaegyesan suspension bridge relieves hikers' fatigue

Hwayangyeonhwa (화양연화) is a neat café serving up tasty coffee drinks and is only 15 mins away from the Chaegyesan suspension bridge. The great thing about this place is you can get your caffeine fix in a room of beautiful hanok.

During the summer, this shop serves up patbingsu, a red bean sherbert, but year-round it offers a range of desserts like rice cakes and even dango Japanese rice dumplings. If you aren’t a coffee drinker, they have some teas and milk on the menu as well.

I opted for “The blue night of Jeju Island,” a magical green tea latte for 7,000 won. I also ordered the strawberry rice cake, another signature menu item, for 4,000 won. The layers of frothy milk and frothy tea were beautiful in my latte and the taste was delicious. I was also pleased with my dessert. If you’re looking for an Instagrammable café or a place to sit back and relax after a long adventure, consider Hwayangyeonhwa for your pit stop.
