[seoul] seongbuk-dong: april cafe [에이프릴 카페]

Another newbie to the neighborhood!

I know I say this all the time but Seongbuk-dong is sooo going to be the next hip area in town if they keep up with the number of restaruants/cafes opening every month!

This particular restaurant/cafe was very near to where I was staying at and I always thought to myself that.. I really don’t like the font they were using for their sign. Random and irrelevant I know, but I don’t know it’s one of the reasons why it took me so long to try it out.

I probably wouldn’t have tried it till now if it wasn’t for the fact that I was starving after jogging up to Gilsangsa Temple plus the very attractive lunch set promo sign in front of their shop.

The place is way more spacious than it seems from outside.

My slightly irrelevant and personal opinion would be that I felt like the place was trying too hard to be a little more than what they were when in fact their atmosphere/quality wasn’t quite there yet, do you know what I mean? Not to say the place or the food was in poor quality ‘cos they weren’t – the food tasted great and the place was clean and neat!

Blunch does kind of makes sense too…

But afterall, I guess it’s taste of the food/service/quality that determines whether you’ll be a returning customer so yes, in that case I think I would go back and try the different lunch menus they have.
