Cute Cafes In Seoul No. 1: Cafe El Cielo


The first cafe I went to during my winter in Korea was Cafe El Cielo. It is just in Garosugil, a hip area in Seoul that is just across the guesthouse I stayed in. 

When I searched for its literal meaning, Cafe El Cielo according to Google means "Coffee Heaven". True enough, the highlight of this coffeeshop is its interiors: pastel clouds hanging from its ceiling, which light up nicely at night.



Coffee culture in Seoul is alive even at night:

Price was a bit steep for the serving size, I ordered hot latte for KRW 5,300 or Php 200+. I love the ambiance, though! As they say, you're paying for the experience too.


The visual baristas of Cafe El Cielo:




The cafe's interiors also has this urban-industrial appeal with the blacks and grays color palette, cement blocks and metal fixtures. I love that this vibe is on the polar end of the pastel fluffy clouds!


Again, the cafe is prettier at night with all the clouds lighted up. But with the full glass walls, I can also imagine the place bathed by the sun during daytime. Take your pick! ❤
