Cafe Naru and Seonyudo Bridge

Last sunday, I was fortunate to visit the Cafe Naru (나루) at Seonyudo with Oppa, because many people still haven't visited to this cafe. This was my first time there, and I was extremely impressed. 

We go inside and check this place out to try their drinks.

Let me start by saying that the Cafe Naru has been a favourite of mine for some time now!
The viewing during the night is great but the best time to view it is at morning.

As it was winter the restaurant was closed, but the cafe is open. They serve coffee, tea and some healthy drinks.

A wonderful escape on a Saturday night! Cafe Naru has outdoor seating pretty much beside the river, great place to hang out and people watch. I like the river area because you get to sit outside surrounded by green trees and water like you are having coffee or tea in the river.

This cafe is located on the second floor.

The place had some adorable artwork displayed on its walls.

Once I set my foot in the door, I was greeted by a friendly guy who welcomed me and Oppa.

The place is trendy, has a peaceful atmosphere, and a friendly staff.
My oppa ordered an Americano, which he loved, and I ordered a Peppermint tea. Prices are pricey for drink compared to other cafes.
If you are looking for a nice place to hangout with the gorgeous atmosphere and a delicious drink, look no further! Cafe Naru is a much better place to hang out.

Cafe Naru is a pretty cool place to sit and hang out with friends or your lover! I loved the cafe, and it had such a quaint cozy feel, cool wind from the river, the surrounding scenery, which get more beautiful in the morning.

Cafe Naru is one of the best ways to enjoy the scenery around Hangang River. We only had a drink here on a Saturday and it was very quiet with few full tables scattered around the cafe.

This cafe is comfortable and has some beautiful views. We relaxed and took in the pleasant setting in front of us which was the Hangang River.

I had a Peppermint tea, if you enjoy tea I highly recommend the Peppermint tea. The tea is prepared properly, and tastes pretty decent as well. Peppermint tea is an herbal tea made from an infusion of peppermint, Mentha piperita. Peppermint tea is a delicious, refreshing and it has been proven to have some fairly amazing health and beauty benefits.

The Americano is simply amazing, delicious, well flavored, smooth, and perfectly bitter. I can't describe it any better than that except that it was delicious (Definitely better than The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf).

We left the cafe and chose to walk over the Seonyudo Bridge (선유도 다리) to reach the parking place for going back home. Voila' the view of the Seonyudo Bridge at night (선유도야경)!
Seonyudo Bridge is a pedestrian only footbridge that connects the Yanghwa district in the south to an island park located on the Hangang River. Seonyudo Bridge (선유도 다리), a pretty little arc that was built in the early 2000s in a collaboration between Seoul and the French 2000 Commission.

Overall, my only con is that the parking situation is not ideal as I never like having to pay for parking! On a beautiful winter day, don't waste your precious time staying at home only. How about going to a cafe where you can enjoy delicious coffee or tea with your friends, family, or lover?

  25. oh a nice place..dear u shud make ur pic bigger..its so hard to see...

  26. oh, is free parking the norm over in korea that's why you doesn't like to pay for parking? the cafe looks like a good place to chill and hangout. wished you've used bigger pictures though.

    1. Seoul one of the most expensive parking fee. No parking free in Seoul. Especially when you want to go to cafe or restaurant. For 10 minutes parking, you need to pay 1,000 KRW.

  27. Lovely Cafe and some lovely pics you got there! I wish the pics were a bit bigger to get a feel of the place better.

    GIG Love
