cafe hopping | Oneinamillion in Hannam-dong14 September 2016
oneinamillion is a small cafe that has been all over Seoul-ites Instagram feeds since its opening this past May. The cafe's minimalist white interior paired with its signature pink and black decor has landed it as one of the go-to spots in recent trendy neighborhood, Hannam-dong. Even though half the people sitting at oneinamillion's marble tables are probably there to just take pictures, the cafe has a menu full of tasty (also photogenic) drinks and sweets.
We came to oneinamillion hoping to grab brunch but this place isn't really geared towards meals. Instead, we found the menu to have mostly creatively-named coffee drinks, various -ades, cocktails, and cakes. We ended up going for a very, very sweet White Tiramisu Cake, a not-so-sweet Lemon Cake, Grapefruit Lemonade (for me), and a latte called Holiday which was coconut milk based (for my friend). Everything was delicious. Definitely the perfect place to go if you have a taste for something sweet on a nice sunny day! My one regret is not getting my drink in one of the cute takeout cups that mimic the black and pink interior of the cafe. These can be seen on their b.e.a.utiful Instagram feed.
Advice to foreign visitors: Don't just go in and sit down expecting someone to come up and take your order. You have to go up to the counter, order, and then find a table. It may look a little fancy but it's not that fancy! I'm also pretty sure there was English on the menu, so if you don't speak Korean you should be A-ok!

Hannam-dong looked like such a cool area while I was walking around and checking out the different shops and restaurants. There were a lot of cafes with artsy concepts, fashion/lifestyle shops, and cozy little specialty food stores a.k.a. a restaurant dedicated to king size 김말이. MAJOR HEART EYES GUYS. This definitely won't be my last time visiting!
lol just kidding
Until next time!
