Visiting Baguio Soon? This New K-Drama-Inspired Cafe is a Must-Visit

Have a slice of Seoul in the Summer Capital.
by | September 06, 2021

K-dramas, among other hobbies and activities, have become more popular since we all went on lockdown in 2020. You’ll just never get enough of your fave oppas and their kilig moments! While we dream of visiting filming locations of our fave dramas, there’s a newly-opened cafe in Baguio that will make the long hours on the road so worth it.


Feel like you’re in a K-drama at Seollem Cafe

After binge-watching several dramas the past year and a half, you’ve probably gotten into everything Hallyu: from craving K-food to learning more about the Korean culture. Located at #74 Del Nacia Apartments, Camp 7, Baguio City, Seollem Cafe would give you a slice of Seoul right in the heart of the Summer Capital – ready your best OOTDs, poses, and palate! Everything is Korean: from the food to furniture.

Seollem Cafe is inspired by two K-dramas, Itaewon Class and Crash Landing On You, which you can see in its interiors. The lower ground would make you feel like you’re about to get a bowl of Park Sae Ro Yi’s famous sundubu jjigae (soft tofu stew). The entire floor is inspired by Danbam: exposed concrete walls, wooden furniture, dreamy fairy lights, and plants. Even the seats are similar to Danbam’s!

If you’ve ever wondered what is like to live in successful CEO Yoon Se Ri’s apartment, just go to Seollem Cafe’s second floor to have the same feel.


The Menu

From coffee-based drinks to colorful fruit juices, Seollem Cafe’s menu would transport you to quaint cafes around Seoul. You can have these drinks hot, iced, and blended, including some signature drinks like Misutgaru (multi-grain) Tea Latte (P135), Black Sesame Latte (P145), and the viral Dalgona Latte (P135).

No cafe experience is complete without having desserts and snacks, and Seollem has a variety of them, from authentic bingsu, croffles, Korean pasta, and Korean fried chicken. They even have Korean Street Toast, just like the ones Uju from Hospital Playlist can’t get enough of!

If you’re staying longer, you can go for savory dishes like their Kimchi Fried Rice (P215) or Bibimbap (P225) for a filling meal.

Here’s their full menu:
