Seoul Forest Cafe Street is a hidden gem located right next to Seoul Forest (park) in Seongdong-gu, Seoul. It is conveniently accessible from 2 subway stations (i.e. Seoul Forest Station and Ttukseom Station) with an easy walking distance of 4-6 mins.

Compared to the more well-known cafe streets of Ikseondong Hanok Village which has a traditional chic atmosphere and Seongsu-dong Cafe Street with industrial vibes, Seoul Forest Cafe Street is beautifully charming.

Seoul Forest Cafe Street has a good mix of unique speciality cafes, restaurants, prop shops, fashion and accessories boutiques along the streets. The lovely and easy walking street stretches about 440m long with shops/restaurants on both sides. Two other streets (i.e. Seoulsup 4-gil and Seoulsup 6-gil) run parallel to it and certainly worth exploring as well.

You can enjoy interesting murals along the streets too.

💡The best way to explore Seoul Forest Cafe Street is to start from the first shop (i.e. the bright pink Samo Ondoh Flagship Store) along Seoulsup 2-gil if you are coming direct from the nearest subway stations; or Gate 4/5 if you are coming from Seoul Forest.
