3 Daegu cafes where you can feel the warmth of spring days

It's April with warm sunshine.
On a day like this, I want to sit in a cafe with the sunlight and enjoy a cup of fragrant coffee.

I'd like to show you some pictures of nice Daegu cafes where you can feel the warmth of spring days.

April 2020, Daegu
Another winter has passed and a new spring has come.
Soft pink apricot flowers and magnolia are falling, and spring brings out the blurry cherry blossoms.
I took my favorite book and diary and left home.


1. Hanok Cafe Mansion 5

The first destination was Hanok Cafe Mansion 5 (Mansion 5), located near Dongseongno Yakjeon Alley. It is also close to the Jongno bar alley.
Location : Daegu Metropolitan City Jung-gu, 79-gil, Jung-gu
There is also a separate parking space at Hanok Cafe Mansion 5.
The entrance to Mansion 5, which is made of hanok structure that gives a gentle feeling.
Under the sunlight, the sparkling house blends well with the blue and clear sky.
The atmosphere of the outdoor terrace, located near the entrance, seemed to show the chilly early spring yet
Grass and light green trees with yellow sunshine sound of spring walking.

Inside the modern atmosphere of the cafe. The cool afternoon sun smelt warm,
A neat self-refining frame that goes well with hanok cafes stands out.

We have crepecake (strawberry, green tea) and iced Americano.
Crepecakes are said to be made of handmade in professional bakeries.

I accidentally flipped over during the shoot. Still a sweet and soft crepe.


2. Brunch Cafe NangMan Nori

The second destination was the brunch cafe "NangMan Nori", which has a garden located in Bukmun, Kyungpook National University.
It is a cafe with a pretty garden that you can't find in Daehangno.
Location : Daegu Metropolitan City Daehangno 23-gil 18-9 Cafe NangMan Nori

In addition to drinks and brunch, you can also enjoy meals such as pasta.
It can also be accompanied by pets in a large garden.

Spring-scent and cozy garden welcomed us as soon as we enter the entrance.
People who enjoy brunch on outdoor terraces can also be seen in the warm spring sunshine.
Cute Reese You See Inside the Cafe
In the weather of the spring breeze, the word "romantic play" comes to me lovingly.

I ordered Americano (4,000 won) and vanilla latte (4,500 won).
Simple but neat plating stood out.

The beans had a heavy feeling.

The inside of the cafe was full of sensuous touches.


3. A cafe in Apsan, Baekgeumdang

The third place I visited was Baekgeumdang in Apsan.
48 Memorial Roads in Nam-gu, Daegu
The place, famous for scones and castella, made us feel excited with its savory smell even before we went in.

The white wall at the entrance and the wood harmonize calmly.

A cafe located near the Apsan, Monday is a holiday, so be careful.

We ordered coffee (5,500 won) and fruit castella (7,500 won).

The sunlight through the window curtains relaxes me.
Coffee and castella go so well together.
The yellow sunshine and the unique antique atmosphere of Baekgeumdang also blend well, giving it a sweet smell.
You can see the sensuous interior of Baekgeumdang from all over the store.
The light and white concrete walls seemed to add a ton to the atmosphere inside the store.
A luxurious and antique atmosphere.

A comfortable light comes through the window.
The wind flutters on my cheeks.


We arrived in spring after another season, and we can give each other a cup of warm tea as a reward for overcoming the cold winter.

If you now hide your tired mind, or overcome it and face a spring day where something new comes out faintly,
Why don't you feel the warm spring sunshine, holding a book and a cup of tea with the most precious person next to you now?

There is a flower blooming outside the window.


There are many pretty cafes in Daegu, right?
There are so many cafes with good atmosphere and delicious coffee and desserts that even if you go on a cafe tour for a few days.
Just by looking at the pictures, I can feel the good vibe, but I'm sure they'll still be there after a while.
We recommend that you visit after social distance period.​

I hope all of you who visit our blog will enjoy a warm spring day.

My hometown, Daegu (the story of Daegu)

It's a warm spring day. I think it will be a perfect spring in April!

Even Daegu, which is warmer than other cities, has spring as usual, but it is hard to As a citizen of Daegu, you may feel many emotions.

Though it's a difficult time, I'd like to cheer up Daegu citizens who care about the community and the people around them!

Today, I would like to introduce you to an article written by Jeon Jae-min, a field reporter who was born and has lived in Daegu.

I think many people as well as citizens of Daegu will agree with this. Let's read it together.

It`s no different than this time last year. Samdeok-dong, once again, was still beautiful."

Passing through the middle of March, the warm spring sunshine, no different from any other year, is beating down the street.
Today, I want to talk about Daegu, which I haven't thought much about while going to the meeting place after a long time.

- Gyeongbuk National University Festival
To me, who was born in Daegu and has lived my whole life, "Daegu" remains a relaxed but noisy city.

Each month, the buildings are lined with distinctive festivals, events, and busy streets.

And as you start to get out of there little by little, to the nature you see. The previously mentioned relaxed yet noisy images are permeated throughout Daegu. From now on, let's visit various places based on the pictures in the cell phone gallery and my memories.

- Hajungdo
First of all, while I watched the gallery, there was a place that stood out and had a clear memory. It is the 'Hajungdo Yuchae Flower Complex' located in Nogok-dong, Buk-gu, Daegu. This is one of the places where many people admire the wide array of flowers along the Geumho River.
Unfortunately, at the time of the photo shoot, it was just before the flowers bloomed, so we couldn't see the distinctive yellow waves.
Since it is said to reach full bloom around mid-April every year, let's check the time of enlightenment and then visit it.

The way to find the load map is by using the bus no.3.
Bukgu No. 3 is via the "East Daegu" and "Daegu" zones, which are easily accessible to tourists visiting Daegu from another country, so anyone can easily visit it.

- Wolgwang Water Park in midsummer

The second place to enjoy leisure is Wolgwang Water Park located in Wolgok-ro, Dalseo-gu.
Many people think of Minrak Water Park in Busan when they say waterfront park.
However, Daegu also has a walkway, cafes, and a Wolgwang Waterfront Park, which is surrounded by restaurants.
Unlike the waterfront park, which is unique to Busan, Wolgwang Water Park is facing the pond, so you can enjoy the calm waves.
Depending on the weather, you can enjoy a dreamy landscape filled with water fog.

Now let's move away from the leisurely tourist attractions and take a look at the noisy downtown of Daegu. Today's meeting place is Samdeok-dong.

- an alleyway in Samdeok-dong

Samdeok-dong consists mainly of alleys. As you walk along these alleys, you will find cute cafes, restaurants, bars and prop shops everywhere. 

- Cafe OE, brunch cafe
Walking along the street with an acquaintance, I visited OE, a sandwich shop located in Samdeok-dong, near lunchtime.

Due to the low number of tables, there is a certain amount of waiting lines at a time when guests usually visit, but today I was able to sit down right away without waiting. It was a perfect space for enjoying the relaxed atmosphere of Samdeok-dong, as the store was made up of an open structure that allowed customers to look out of the window.

- Props Shop 'Object'
If you walk a little from the OE, you'll see the object.
Object is a kind of prop shop that gathers stationery and various props, starting with various goods.
It was a place where you could have a little fun by picking out props for each other with your friends after the meal.

-Cafe 'Lit'

Finally, I visited the cafe 'lit' located next to the object.
This is a cafe with a unique concept of selling furniture on display inside the cafe with coffee.
It is also made up of remodeled rural houses, so you can experience the feeling of drinking coffee while looking out of a window in a well-decorated house.

- What you see outside the window from inside the lit
As I opened the front door for the first time in a while and headed for the meeting place, I looked back on the various images of Daegu in cell phone gallery and the current surroundings.

Still warm, still leisurely.
It's a tough time for everyone. However, it seems like everyone is living their lives with a life of ease, not much different from before, without losing their laughter even in difficult situations.
Wishing you a hard time and return to the noisy Daegu as soon as possible.

With the efforts and rituals of Daegu citizens, you will overcome the difficulties and return to Daegu where many people visit!I wish all the visitors good health.
