These photos were from 2009, at a time when the cafe used in the filming of Coffee Prince still looked very much like the set.

    I visited the cafe last year! Sadly there were no real flower boys there.

      Was the cafe actually a cafe though? Did it have good coffee/food?

        I did have a latte there as they serve coffee. I didn’t have any food and don’t remember if they served any. Then they took my picture in a bunch of places on the grounds. It was super slow and I think there were maybe 3 business men having coffee there.

          Hmmm…I guess 10 years later doesn’t hold as much interest. What is the name of the place, incase I end up want to pass? Thanks!

            They still call it Coffee Prince as far as I know. It’s in the Hongdae neighborhood. Keep in the network also runs a Coffee Prince coffee shop on the main street of the area (it’s at the Hongdae stop on the 2 line of the subway). I didn’t go in that one though I did see it. It’s not at all like the actual filming location.

        This photo was from my trip in 2009, and at that time it was definitely a cafe serving coffee and pastries. The staff even wore the white shirt and black pants and long apron uniform from in the show. I will post a few other photos from the outing.
