HongDae themed cafés: Minto

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!

Another thing Hongdae is famous for is themed coffee shops! You’ve got the Coffee Prince cafe, the Hello Kitty cafe, Cat Cafés… there is basically a coffee shop for every theme you can think of!

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!

Adorable decor ( I spend an horrible amount of time editing that pic of me >> horrible face + hair day but wtv…)



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.


Address information:

369-10, Mapo-gu, Seoul (서울특별시 마포구 서교동 369-10)
Metro: Green Line, Hongik University (Hongdae) exit 5.

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!
