Café Oui in Garosugil (카페 위 가로수길)

Today I visited possibly my new favourite café in Seoul!

Café Oui is located just off the main street Seoul’s glam Garosugil neighbourhood, accesible via Sinsa Station (Line 3, Exit 8).

Garosugil is a haven for fashionistas, photographers, and style-seekers. But, with trendy atmospheres come “trendy prices”, as I discovered upon getting the menu at Café Oui!

Yep, that’s $7.50 (7,500w) for an iced americano! You pay for the atmosphere though, which I must say was well worth it.

I decided to order the top-selling “white choco mocha cupcake”. At $6, yes, it was just a tad pricey!

I should’ve taken a photo of inside the cupcake though – it had a really dense fudgey filling that went well with the subtly-flavoured mocha buttercream frosting.

…Brace yourselves! Lots of cupcake photos coming up!

Now, for some photos of the café’s interior:

I love the shabby-chic, French-countryside, Indie-ish sort of vibe they went with.

It has everything I would love to have in a house: high ceilings, hardwood floors, bright spaces, and a wonderfully girly and cute kitchen (one world: lace doilies!).

Overall, a cute place to go for coffee with the girls, or perhaps on a date! Also a nice place to do homework, though perhaps not on a regular basis (I can’t believe I paid $7.50 for an Americano… $7.50 for an Americano…). Anyways, I’d definitely recommend it for all of your girly café needs in Seoul!

Directions:

Take Line #3 to Sinsa Station. Take exit 8, and follow the directions to Garosugil (walk straight for about 5-10 minutes, and turn left onto the street that says “Garosugil”).

Once you’re on Garosugil, keep walking on the left side until you see Beans Bins Café. Turn left. Walk straight one block, then turn right at the mini intersection. Keep walking straight until you see the 7-11, then turn left. Café Oui will be on your right.
