On August 11th, my brother and I met with my friend Justin in Hongdae, Seoul. I hadn’t been to Hongdae and I was really eager to walk around since it a well know area for entertainment, clubbing and shopping!
My friend Justin knew how much I liked the drama Secret Garden so after giving us a short tour of Hongdae, we sat down for a drink at a cafe called Minto based on Secret Garden!
The cafe is very cozy and adorable! Any girl will find her happiness as both the decor and staff is cute: waiters and waitress not only look good but are extremely polite and nice. Girls looking for a healthy dose of flower boys can also find it at this café since waiters were beyond cute!
Aside from a general sitting area, you also have private rooms which are great for study groups :)
Now this café wasn’t exactly my brother’s thing of place… but who cares, go there with a bunch of girls and enjoy! Although I can’t remember a thing about how much it cost, it was fairly cheap with free refills for our drinks and a nice variety of food at a good price.
369-10, Mapo-gu, Seoul (서울특별시 마포구 서교동 369-10)

If you’re in the Hongdae area, definitely stop by! It’s a nice place to take a break from Seoul’s fast paced life!
