As many of you know, I am a café crusader. I love to explore different cafes and see what zany and creative things they offer. Cultural cafes also interest me; I especially love ones that are representative of other countries. So you can imagine I was really excited to find an adorable little British café in the back streets of Mangwon, not far from Seoul Battleship Park.
Cafe Tweed is stereotypically British, and super fun. I went there with fellow bloggers, Fii Cridland and Hannah International. Luckily, they are both British, so they could give me inform me if the café was legit or not.
There are two levels in the café; the top is really small with a low roof, and big comfy chairs. There are Beatles pillows scattered about and antique lamps adorning the tables. It really resembles an old-school living room. On the wall next to the stairs leading up to the second floor have tons of photos depicting British cultural icons. You can get a glimpse of the historical figures and famous celebrities.
The first floor is where you order your drinks, and there are two giant comfy chairs next to the large front window. They have a range of coffees and teas and have some snacks available as well. There is a lot of light in the café, so in the daytime, it is a great place to shoot. In fact, you can rent the café for relatively cheap rates, and several Korean dramas have used the café for shooting locations.
I asked the girls about their thoughts on the café. They told me that although the café was a little gimmicky, and stereotypical, it was super adorable and well worth the trek out there. The teas were pretty good, and the snacks were pretty decent considering Koreans and not actual British people ran the café.
