Hello everyone! I want to say 새해 복 많이 받으시고 건강하세요 (Happy New Year and be healthy) ^^
My oppa and I came to CNN Cafe on a Saturday night because it is conveniently located in Banpo Floating Island, Hangang River. CNN Cafe offers a romantic and relaxed space in which to enjoy a cup of coffee or tea, and good selection of bakery items.
This cafe looks pretty charming from the outside. The location is the selling point here because beautiful views of the river make this place a worthwhile place to grab a coffee or tea.
This place completely blew me away!
The outside seating is beautiful. They have both indoor and outdoor tables and wide windows to enjoy the scenery.
The interior of the cafe is romantically charming and so much fun, and the music they play is great too. Free WiFi makes this place a good parking spot for catching up on all your emails and doing a little work as well.
There are long counters with ports and plugs for you to use your own laptop, and plenty of tables, chairs, easy chairs and of course electrical outlets to plug in your computers or charge phones.
The place is spacious, modern, clean, and chic. The atmosphere of this place is really inviting. I admired the colorful decoration that adorned the insides of this place. This is perfect for quiet talks among friends and great place for a date night.
This place has great menu with lots of options. The prices were pretty high but I'll pay a little extra for a guaranteed good experience.
There are many specialty soft drinks. Their pastries selection is huge and is on point, and their cakes are great.
We ordered the Espresso (에스프레소) and Honey Butter Bread (허니버터브레드) definitely go together! The wait was about 14 minutes, was it worth the wait? I would say YES!
A definite delight for your sweet tooth indeed. Serve it on a plate with honey, sliced almonds, chocolate sauce, and whipping cream on top. It looks absolutely amazing doesn't it? Bread was freshly toasted, moist, not too sweet, and crispy on the outside. My oppa and I shared the honey butter bread and we enjoyed it.
The espresso smells delicious, tastes decent and the espresso was rich and roasted perfectly.
I have just ordered another drink, I bought the Perrier Lemon. The bottle was so strikingly beautiful. Perrier is basically carbonated water, they don't taste like soda. The taste is not something everyone will like and it can be bitter. Perrier lemon tastes kind of salty to me, but refreshing taste.
Overall, if you are looking for the best place to date, come here! This is a nice place right on the river with a great view and a good menu. We all had a great experience here and would definitely come back.
