Jongdal Village, on the northeast of Jeju, is famous for its view of Udo Island and Seongsan Sunrise Peak, as well as for its colorful, seasonal hydrangeas (Check out these new videos on our Visit Jeju Global Youtube channel: tiny.cc/VJGflower2 tiny.cc/VJGflower).
This “book cafe” in the area caught my eye for its hydrangeas in the front garden and its Jeju citrus cappuccino (5,500 won).
In Korea, “book cafes” are where the proprietor encourages guests to read from a collection of books and magazines while they sip a coffee, tea, or other beverage. In some cases, you can buy the books as well. In this article published last year you can see a few more examples of Jeju book cafes.
