Where: 7 Sinseol-ro 11-gil, Ara-dong, Jeju City 690-122 (near the entrance to Tamna Middle School, close to Verace Apartments). A short taxi ride from City Hall.
When: Open Monday to Saturday, 11am to 11pm.
Menu: International fare, ranging from Japanese-style curry/ fried udon and omurice to Mexican style tortilla pizza. Drinks wise, the Dutch coffee beer stood out most.

Taste: The emphasis is on home-made style. The owners, So Young and Sang Won, prepare everything themselves. So Young proudly announces that the omurice is superior to Korea’s usual taste – slow food rather than fast food. The Dutch coffee beer is possibly the most unique alcoholic beverage you’ll find anywhere on the island. Everything tastes good!
Price: Medium: coffees, teas and other beverages are priced as you’d expect in a Western café. Most meals are 8,000 won, including the tortilla pizza, which can be easily shared.
Interior: So Young is a designer by trade, and she did take care of every single detail inside, from the book-filled shelves to the accessories to the color schemes. So, this is a place where you will want to spend hours rather than minutes.

Atmosphere: As this restaurant is only a couple of months old, it is still building its customer base. Consequently, the owners will give you the personal attention that every customer deserves. They have a cool soundtrack to keep your feet tapping while you wait for your order. The owners will both be happy to chat to you in English (or Korean). In return, all you have to do is spread the word!
Staff: This lovely couple is doing this because they really want to. It’s a pet project with all the care and detail you’d hope for. They’ve come to Jeju for a fresh way of living, and invite you into their new world too.
