Arriate Flower Cafe, Hongdae

I came across Arriate Flower Cafe on Instagram after searching for interesting cafes to visit in Seoul with the bf. I was super excited to visit because the flowers just looked so pretty and somewhat romantic.

The cafe is above Minigold, a watch and accessories shop. It is a 4-storey building and the cafe takes up 3 floors. To be honest, the place looks great in photos but in reality, it's not as nice as I imagined. Drinks are a bit expensive and taste just okay. I will not go again, but if you're looking for pretty photo opps, then it's worth visiting at least once.

To get there, take Line 2 and alight at Hongik University station. Get out through Exit 9, turn left, walk straight and you should see Minigold. Here's a map screengrab I got off Naver Maps. It takes only 1 to 2 mins from the station.

There is another branch at Yeoksam (near Gangnam) but I have never been there. Just search
아리아떼 in Naver Maps and look out for the one near Yeoksam station. Naver Maps is available in English and is really easy and convenient to use!
