Enjoy the cozy and authentic Korean atmosphere at a hanok café with the subtle scent of wood while relaxing to the sound of raindrops falling from the roof and gazing at the outside view through the picture frame-like windows.

Seoul ┃ Teumari

A three-story hanok café with a rooftop view of Jongmyo Shrine, where all the spiritual tablets of the kings and queens of Joseon dynasty are enshrined.

 

The café was renovated from a peasant’s house of the Joseon dynasty. A rooftop was added to offer a view of Jongmyo Shrine while preserving the building’s original form. The glimpse of Jongmyo Shrine among the tall trees behind the shrine’s stonewall seems even more beautiful.

Saridang Café was renovated from an old hanok house that was resided by five generations. The café displays an excellent example of chagyeong, a concept in traditional Korean architecture of enjoying the outside view from a window as if it were a painting in a frame. Saridang has large windows on all sides with seats facing the windows, enabling all their customers to enjoy the outside view.

 

Saridang offers traditional Korean desserts like yakgwa (honey cookie) and juak (chewy rice cake with filling). The café mostly uses ingredients from crops that are grown by the café’s owner, who is also a young farmer, and local crops.

The café also has a mini table set up on toetmaru (outdoor wooden veranda) so that visitors may enjoy the view from under the eaves.
