What Makes These Cafes “The Best”

Every best list depends on the personal taste of the person that makes it. For me, I like locations easily accessed from Pyeongtaek-si, South Korea. I also prefer cafes that feel comfortable for both myself and my daughter.

Cafe Narnia (Asan)

Recommended cafe stop: Cafe Narnia, a magical themed cafe, adding cherry blossoms to the experience will truly feel as though you’ve stepped through the wardrobe. Great place to stop for lunch as well.

People & Story Cafe (Cheonan)

Located next to Cheonhoji Lake, a 1.8K walk that is stroller and pup-friendly. Not a lot of shade, so plan accordingly. Best for those days when you just need a short walk. You’ll find many spots to sit and relax, as well as other cafes along the way.

Recommended cafe stop: People & Story is a unique, vintage cafe with lots of parking. You enter from the second floor with lovely indoor and outdoor views of the lake, and walk down to the first floor and bar area. My favorite coffee drink is the Einspanner. My favorite non-coffee drink is the Passion Fruit Ade.

Gobok Residence Cafe (Sejong)

Located next to Gobok Lake, a 6k walk. Took my toddler and I 2 hours non-stop to walk around this lake. While the route is stroller and pup-friendly, about 1/3 of the walk does not have a sidewalk so you’ll have to pay close attention to moving traffic along the way. Would recommend sunscreen and lots of water though you’ll find a number of cafes, restaurants, a sculpture park, and rest spots along the way.

Recommended cafe stop: Gobok Residence Cafe has large open windows and covered outdoor seating for blossom viewing. They also have their own parking area and they are across the street from one of the entrances to the lake walk.
