Located near Sangsu Station, Luft is complete with all-white walls and an open space. With the name that means "air" in German, the café offers a Hawaiian feel and scents of Kau coffee cultivated in Mauna Loa. Kau coffee may not be as well-known as Kona, but it certainly doesn't come second in terms of quality and characters. The sign on the wall reads, "Hawaii nach Seoul"—full of aromas of citron flowers and fruits, the subtly sweet beans featured on the menu are directly sourced from a Hawaiian Kau farm.
And, of course, there's the so-called "pool seats" complete with glossy square tiles. It was in fact not the intention of the owners but as it turned out to resemble a pool, they went so far as adding pool ladders and tropical greenery. For those who are looking to have a quiet chat, there are large tables by the windows, while one-person seats offer a nice study/reading spot. The music is kept mellow, and up-and-coming artists' works decorate the walls, offering a mini vacation of a sort in the city.
