Taking in the floor seating section of this traditional teahouse café and gazing out the large glass windows into the beautiful courtyard garden might be the thing that makes the deepest impression on you. Vines crawling and flowers blooming, it's easy to believe the owner when she says that the café, established seven years ago, was a labor of love. Her and her family (under the counsel of professional friends) renovated the building and did their best to preserve its original structure. Other than the extensive tea menu and the sought after red bean porridge, you'll find the occasional tourist remembering the location for its use in the 2009 Korean-Japanese film Café Seoul.
