DescriptionOffer Cafe, located in Hongdae, is a place where you can experience more stories and designs. It provides a warm and soft atmosphere for people with diverse personalities to show off their senses.
The interior is uniquely designed with light brick color and warm lighting added to the birch. It stands out from other places decorated in white and wood tones. It’s also known as a great photo zone, offering a unique feel even in a cold atmosphere.
They provide blankets for outdoor space use even in winter. It is also known as a Hongdae sensibility cafe, receiving much love for its sensuous interior.
They always try their best to provide a pleasant time from the coffee beans to various bakeries and cakes. The signature menu of Offer Latte is only served as ice, but it is loved even more than iced Americano with its soft cream. They also have a variety of pretty and delicious desserts prepared. They bake bread twice a day, so you can eat warm and delicious bread just out of the oven if you visit at the right time.

“I’m a regular at Offer Cafe and it never disappoints. The atmosphere is warm and inviting – perfect for showcasing your personality. There’s plenty of seating and the drinks and bakery items are always delicious. Their special menu items like the Shine Muscat Queen Amand and Pastries are worth trying. But the star of the show is their signature Offer Latte – served iced with soft cream, it’s even better than an iced Americano.”


“My first visit to Offer Cafe was a delight. Their bakery section is extensive and visually appealing, making the selection process so much fun. I enjoyed the variety from Queen Amand to salt bread. The indoor and outdoor seating is comfortable, making it a great place to relax while enjoying some music. A must-visit spot in Hongdae!”


“Offer Cafe is the perfect spot for freelancers like me. It’s a great place to focus and get work done, but it’s also ideal for dates. The desserts are delicious and the staff is friendly. The bakery is an absolute treat – so many options to choose from. And the best part? Their Earl Grey tart – the cream is out of this world. Spacious and comfortable, it’s definitely a go-to spot.”

DescriptionThe name Limil and Milli was chosen with the hope that the path we have taken becomes meaningful. Limil is a meaningless word and Milli means one-thousandth, it represents our pursuit of taste details. We spend our time in front of the heated oven to create the ideal structure of taste using the best ingredients that express more flavors when mixed with other ingredients. We select the right coffee beans grown correctly and go through a series of processes to clearly lead what we want to express, roasting in front of a hot roaster today to present the ideal coffee we think. We seek the god in the detail and sharpen our own teeth today. (350 Characters)

“This is my favorite spot in the area. I’ve visited several times and I always enjoy their Financiers – they’re absolutely delicious! I’ve even gifted some a few times because they’re perfect for that. The coffee is also really good. Everyone I’ve brought here is satisfied. It’s quiet and cozy, which I love.”


“Limil and Milli in Hongdae/Hapjeong is a dessert hotspot. The wooden interior is really beautiful. They have both indoor and outdoor seating, which is perfect for this weather. Enjoying dessert and coffee outside is the best.”


“I packed Financiers again today because they’re so delicious! They look a bit special, but they’re chewy and flavorful. The coffee here has an acidity that goes well with Financiers.”

DescriptionMikflo is a bakery cafe that offers both taste and uniqueness. We differentiate ourselves from other bakery cafes in the following ways: 1. Kaymak is a very famous cream cheese in Turkey. Mikflo’s Kaymak is 100% imported. We import directly from Turkey because it’s hard to recreate the heavenly taste of Turkish Kaymak with domestic ingredients. We are selling it so that you can taste the local flavor as it is. We didn’t want to tarnish the image of traditional Kaymak with cream made with domestic fresh cream, so we prepared for 4 years, paying attention to the ingredients used and the flavor of the bread. Try the heavenly taste of traditional Kaymak at Mikflo!

“I went to try the Kaymak and it was a delightful experience. The Kaymak wasn’t too sweet, it was rich and smooth. I had it with a bagel set and the combination was perfect! The cafe has a spacious seating area and the interiors are Instagram-worthy. The coffee was also great!”


“This cafe, Mikflo, is an adorable hidden gem. The interior is cute and the character designs are lovable. The cup designs are tempting and make me want to buy some goods if they ever release any. The desserts are also delicious!”


I tried Kaymak for the first time and it was incredibly tasty. The cafe has a large interior and it’s clean. The cream soda wasn’t too sweet which was actually nice. I want to come here every week just for the Kaymak.
