[Seoul] There is no lack of beautiful cafes in Seoul, especially in the upscale area of Sinsadong with fashionable vibes.
I ‘hunted’ Café Mula down from photos of Korean lifestyle instagrammers, and was so glad I found it.
The location was not that obvious, hidden in a side lane, and you would need to walk about 10 metres from the entrance before you get into the coffee place.
The fashion store cum café is well-known for its minimalistic façade and attracts guests who looked like they stepped out of Korean dramas.
One of the reasons why café Mula is so popular among the locals is also its inviting interior and service. The servers were attentive even when the cafe is super packed with guests.
The interior of café Mula was stylish with light bleached wood and lots of green plants. There is a small terrace outside and upstairs, but most of the visitors prefer indoor seating as it was more warm and comforting.
Would be a different situation in summer.
Sit back on one of the couches or white Scandinavian -style chairs and admire the minimalistic design.
They serve a variety of “handmade” (do they mean hand-brewed) tea including Apple, Grapefruit, Apple, Blueberry, Ginger, Citron, and Citron Ginger Tea.
A cup is priced at 8,000Won (SGD$10).
You can also order Café Mocha, Americano, Espresso, Cappuccino, Café Latte, Choco Latte, Green Tea Latte, Sweet Potato Ginger Latte, priced between 6,000 Won and 8,000 Won (SGD$7.50 – $10.00).
In cafes in Singapore where you usually get a variety of cakes and pastries, Café Mula only serves up 2 desserts – Classic King Size Tiramisu (7,000 Won, SGD$8.75), and Green Tea King Size Tiramisu (8,000 Won, SGD$10).
The Tiramisu is called “King Size” for a reason.
It came like a thick brick, staying firm, yet so velvety smooth as the spoon went through it. Topped with grapes and blueberries, it was decadently fluffy. I went alone and actually finished it.
Beyond the drinks and food, the one aspect that stood out was the vibes – you could almost imagine this café appearing in some magazine spread, and every corner had a different design aesthetic.
The easiest way to get to café Mula is to exit at Sinsa Station Exit 8 and go for a short walk until you reach this amazing café. There is a sign right in front of the café.
