Banana Tree Cafe in Itaewon

2 Flares 2 Flares ×

Seoul has no shortage of unique cafes. One of my favorites is Banana Tree Cafe… a quirky cafe that is filled with warm vintage fixtures and adorable drinks and food. This place reeks of sweetness with it’s cotton candy color scheme and banana knick knacks. I can’t help but feel happy there.

Banana Tree Cafe has several locations but my favorite is in Itaewon. It is a tiny cafe but filled with character! Even if the drinks sucked, I would still love to come here because the decorations are so interesting.

Although the decorations are banana themed, there are actually few banana flavored things being sold. They do have their Banana Tree juice which comes in a glass banana jar complete with a cookie to hold the straw in place. Adorable.

I can never resist their SomSom latte. It’s their most popular drink and for good reason! It’s topped with cotton candy and small pieces of candy that make it look really impressive when you get it. I’m a sucker for presentation and it’s nice to have a sweet treat alongside my latte.

Another unique item you can get here is flower paap – not quite a cake, but a pudding cake mixture nestled into a cute little flower pot. As if that wasn’t cute enough, it also comes with a tiny shovel spoon to eat it with.

Everything is edible other than the silk flower on top. Oreo crumbs and chocolate rocks make it look like a real flower pot that is almost too cute to eat! Their fruit flavored flower paaps are their most popular – but my favorite is the espresso flower paap. So delicious!

How to Get to Banana Tree Cafe

Hangangjin Station, Exit 1. Walk about 300 meters and you will find it on the right.
