TOP 5 Cafes in Jeju You ABSOLUTELY Cannot Miss Out!

 When it comes to Jeju, most people think of a few things - hiking Mount Hallasan, strolling along the scenic coasts, and cafe-hopping. Jeju has got cafes planted in almost every corner. And being an island well-known for its volcanic terrains, most cafes boast breathtaking views, be it the seas or the mountains.

Before our trip, we did our researched and bookmarked a heck lot. But to be honest, there are simply too many which we couldn’t possibly cover all, especially when we have a 5 year-old who constantly complained we are taking too many photos.

Without any particular order, here are the top 5 we been to.

Address: 25 Aewol-ro 1-gil, Aewol-eup, Jeju-si, Jeju-do, South Korea

BOMNAL is nestled in a bustling street where there are lots of cafes. This cafe is seriously insta-worthy with photo opportunities at every turn. Given its popularity among tourists, be sure to grab your slots to secure the best views! Best place IMO is definitely close to sunset, where you can see the sun hides itself in front of you.
2. Saebil
Address: 1529 Pyeonghwa-ro, Aewol-eup, Jeju-si, Jeju-do, South Korea
If there’s a cafe well-known for its sea of pink muhly, it’s gotta be Saebil. And that alone drives seas of people to visit this cafe every day. If you’re more of a foodie, Saebil serves serious artisanal desserts amidst its industrial style building, paired with massive windows and high ceilings.

3. BaaLamb
Address: 1091-3 Sinhwayeoksa-ro, Andeok-myeon, Seogwipo-si, Jeju-do, South Korea

Lesser known to many, BaaLamb makes it to the top of the list, not because of its drinks or desserts, but for it's unique activity - feeding their cute lambs! Definitely a must-do for both young and old. Simply purchase a drink at their counter and you're able to get a bucket of carrot sticks to feed the lambs.

4. Cafe Delmoondo
Address: 519-10 Johamhaean-ro, Jocheon-eup, Jeju-si, Jeju-do, South Korea
If you search for cafes, Cafe Delmoondo will definitely pop up. It's well known for its unique pastries and desserts. Just a heads up, it is and probably will be SUPER CROWDED, with lots of tourists and locals snatching the front seats to a panoramic coastal view. Do catch a walk along Jeju's famous Hamdeok Beach too.

5. Cafe Lucia

Address: 49-17 Nandeureu-ro, Andeok-myeon, Seogwipo-si, Jeju-do, South Korea
Located at the southern coast of Jeju, Cafe Lucia serves really great desserts amidst its chill atmosphere. We tried their hallabong-inspired desserts and teas, while we enjoyed a beautiful sunset view at their outdoor seating. It's slightly costly as compared to the rest, but hey, for the view, why not.
