If you love cafe with a strong Japanese feel and hanging rustic lights, make sure to pop in when you’re in the area!

One thing I know for sure when planning my Seoul trip is that I need to visit their coffee shop. Blue Bottle, Perception, and Café Kitsune are one of many coffee shops in Seoul that I *desperately* wants to visit. Meskipun hari efektif untuk liburan di sana hanya 5 hari, I tried my best to squeeze these café on my itinerary lol.

The iconic fox has arrived in Seoul!

Tapi, manusia hanya bisa berencana, cuaca lah yang menentukan. The weather was hella crazy though it was just early autumn. Saya nggak kuat dingin, jadi dalam satu hari hanya bisa berkunjung ke 3 destinasi saja. So, we put our priority on tourist destinations like N Seoul Tower, Myeongdong Street, Hongdae, Nami Island, and Bukchon Hanok Village since this was my Dad first trip to Seoul.

Dari semua daftar kafe yang saya masukkan ke dalam list, yang berhasil dikunjungi hanya Café Kitsuné di Garosugil. Itu pun sudah last minute and we visited it on our last day! Saving the best for the last, I guess.

Namun demikian, our experience in Café Kitsuné Garosugil was seriously the best. It’s not as crowded as I expected and we easily get the table on the open yard. Lokasinya juga sangat dekat dengan subway dan sangat mudah untuk mencarinya since it’s almost impossible to missed a huge open door with wooden carving in it. Begitu masuk, pengunjung akan langsung disambut dengan jalan setapak dan barisan pohon bambu di kanan kirinya. Instaworthy banget!

It’s a mixed spot for coffee and also fashion.

Sekadar informasi, Café Kitsuné ini letaknya menyatu dengan Maison Kitsuné. It’s a mixed spot for coffee and also fashion, jadi kamu bisa belanja beragam item fashion di sini. Banyak pernak-pernik lucu untuk mengisi lemari (dengan harga yang ‘lucu’ juga karena mahal menurutku wk). Sementara untuk menu minumannya cukup terbatas, tapi varian kopinya enak imho. Jangan lupa juga beli kukis ikonik ala Café Kitsuné seharga 3500 won.

What I love the most about Café Kitsuné is the ambience. If you love cafe with a strong Japanese feel and hanging rustic lights, make sure to pop in when you’re in the area! Bagian dalam kafenya didesain minimalis dengan cahaya temaram, so to get the best experience, I suggest you to sit outside! Kemarin waktu ke sana sekitar pukul 4 sore, udaranya lagi sejuk banget. Jadi, duduk di luar sembari menyesap kopi hangat terasa sangat nikmat banget. Kami menghabiskan sekitar satu jam di kafe ini untuk bersantai, foto-foto, dan sekadar ngobrol ringan. We enjoyed our time in Café Kitsuné and I hope you’d too!
