    Sieun-U was at one time a single-family house but has since been converted to a cafe. Naturally, it offers a unique experience. It's not easy to find, but once you're there, you'll appreciate the quiet and secluded atmosphere. There's a large courtyard where you can eat at an outdoor table on a nice day. As you can imagine, there're also some nice photo spots unlike anywhere else. At night, the harmony between the bright cafe interior and the dark outdoor garden is quite alluring.

When you reach a small garden in the park, you can see the entire park offering a different visual treat in each direction. Don't miss it if you have a chance to visit Temi Park.

    Thumbs Up, Bro

    The atmosphere here created by antiques isn't all that different from other brunch cafes, but Thumbs Up, Bro isn't just about the ambience. The pasta and salad dishes here are more delicious than at many other restaurants, so more people come here looking for a meal than a cup of coffee. You can enjoy your meal and dessert in one place and thanks to the pleasant vibe, it's recommended for couples or even groups who want to enjoy long conversations while dining.
