Geofood – Cafe Coji

An important note on Jeju’s updated bus system and this blog post

From August 2017, Jeju Island implemented a new city and intercity bus system. It increased the number of buses in service, while simplifying the routes, fees and numbering system.

Consequently, the contents of this previously published blog post may have changed. We therefore would kindly request that you consult this page for new bus maps in English on VisitJeju.net,  and this page on our blog for a chart of the old and new bus route numbers.

If you read Korean, then the province’s official bus system website is a useful and up-to-date resource. We hope you’ll enjoy your travels on Jeju Island!

 

As you travel around Jeju, you will notice that there are many bakeries in the city and outside of the city. If you are in the Seongsan area, then you must stop by Cafe Coji, where the bread is fresh and delicious!

Cafe Coji is located on the east coast of Jeju towards the Seongsan Harbor entrance.

Address: 200 Handoro, Seongsan-eup, Seogwipo-si, Jeju (서귀포시 성산읍 한도로 200) You can take bus 710 or 710-1 from Jeju Intercity Bus Terminal and get off at Seongsan Harbor Entrance bus stop. This cafe is about 2 minutes away.

I like the simple decorates and wooden furniture. There’s something humble and endearing about it.

The windows will give you a nice view of Seongsan Ilchulbong.

When the weather is nice out, you can sit in the patio and enjoy your coffee.

As part of the Geo brand, you can see how the decorations reflect the motif of Jeju’s geography and olle trails.

What does it mean that Cafe Coji is part of the Geo-food brand? As part of the Geo Brand, geo-food is made from fresh local ingredients on Jeju, using motifs from the geological features of the UNESCO Global Geopark. At Cafe Coji, you can find the Seongsan Ilchulbong Peak Muffin and Segwipo Stratum Shell Fossil Madeleine.

But no drawings can beat the real food! From the fluffy texture to the mouth-watering aroma, you can’t resist wanting to take a bite. ^_^

Doesn’t this look delicious? #nomnomnom

I think the dish that best represents this cafe and its location is the green tea “Ilchulbong Bingsoo,” or Sunrise Peak shaved ice dessert. Can you see the similarity with its iconic flat top?

If you have a recommendation from this cafe, please comment and let us know. Since summer is “bingsoo” season, we would love to hear what are some of your favorite bingsoo desserts!
