Driving west from the SanBangSan Temple and voilà! Le Café!
Inside the Sagye 80°
I wanted to post about this cafe-restaurant sooner, but when I first went, they only had one menu item (I'm pretty sure my friend and I went only a week or so after they opened!). I also had trouble classifying it into the categories that I'm used to. I mean, it has all the beverage choices of a cafe with choice desserts, but then there are the more complex meals and a pub-like atmosphere. I spent a couple of hours here last week working on my laptop, too.

Definitely a versatile space.

At this point in time, I don't know if they have a menu written in English, but if you can sound out Korean syllables, a lot of the names are koreanized spellings of English words (for example: 브런치 becomes Buh-run-chi or Brunch and 카페모카 becomes Ca-pe Mo-ca or Caffe Mocha).

Aside from the beverages, they have a Brunch Menu available from 11 until 15:30 and then a dinner menu. Brunch items (according to the picture below) are Pork Cutlet, the Sagye 80° Brunch, and Morning Bread with tangerine jam. The dinner menu includes Cream Pasta, Tomato Pasta and again Pork Cutlet.

As they write the items on this black board, I wonder if that means that they will also play with their available items and experiment with some new ones, too.

What I do know is that it has a killer view.

 Most of the cafes or restaurants that I frequent in this area are right along the coast and I do love that, but as my friend and I climbed the stairs and found ourselves staring out these windows, I couldn't help but appreciate the genius of the location. This cafe offers a whole new perspective on an area that I love.

What's more, is that once warmer weather hits, it looks like they will also have that rooftop patio vibe going as well. Yes please!

Now for some food pictures (Why else would this matter, right? ㅋㅋㅋㅋ).
Pork Cutlet
Starting with the Pork Cutlet. The portion size was pretty good and my friend and I actually split one and still found it quite filling (especially as I also ordered a strawberry smoothy!). The breading was nice and crisp and the meat was really tender.
Brunch Set
Compared to North America standards, this brunch set might seem a little small, and a bit more expensive, but for more western-style food, the price is generally higher in Korea. Still, the food was filling and really delicious. I am also biased toward well-done taters and these were some good potatoes. 

Still, if you are looking for a new place to try as a one-off or a new place to haunt, definitely check out this cafe.

Until the next adventure!

Love and Hugs

P.S. Here are two more images of a couple beverages:
One of the "Ade" beverages. Reminder that in Korea this means carbonated.
Strawberry smoothy. Not the best I've had, but still good.

Things I've learned about France (or at least Normandy)

Well there we go, my second European country. In some ways, very similar to England (a lot of meat and potatoes, fancy churches, pay toilets...
