Innisfree Jeju House (이니스프리 제주하우스)

Friday, 19 February 2016

Innisfree (이니스프리) is my most favourite low-end Korean beauty brand, so when I discovered a one-stop-shop and café selling its eco-friendly products and organic desserts, I knew it was a place I couldn't miss. Of course we couldn't go to the flagship Innisfree Jeju House (이니스프리 제주하우스) on Jeju Island (제주도), so we went to the only branch in Seoul in Samcheongdong (삼청동) after our visit to Bukchon Hanok Village.

The first floor is where you will find all the Innisfree beauty products as well as certain items that are exclusive to the Jeju House, such as local Jeju Island specialties. I bought a few masks and bottle of toner that I've never seen before at any other Innisfree branches.

The second floor is where you will find the Green Café, which provides healthy food and drinks in line with Inisfree's "green" concept. There, we ordered a cup of sweet potato latte and a piece of sweet potato cake. I honestly have no words to describe how perfect the latte, cake and soft biscuit was, but it was really interesting that they used sweet potato with the purple flesh instead of yellow flesh, which is used more often in Korean desserts. In Sydney, it's actually hard to find sweet potato with yellow flesh because we tend to have more sweet potato with purple, orange and white flesh instead.

The interiors of the café was simple yet refined. It had a lot of wooden surfaces and plenty of natural lighting which made it perfect for taking photos. Even though we went around 1:30pm, there were only two other tables inside, so it turned out to be very peaceful break for us. In fact, it was the perfect place for us to stop by after walking around for almost 2 hours.

Out of all the cafés I've been to in Seoul, this café was my most favourite one because it was just so so lovely. Although I'm curious to see how the flagship Innisfree Jeju House looks like in person, I definitely wouldn't mind going to the Samcheongdong branch again. Not only was the food tasty, the atmosphere of the café was also very pleasant and relaxing. So if you're a fan of healthy(ier) desserts and natural cosmetics, definitely check this place out when you're in Seoul.
