Caffe Bene is a coffeehouse that originated in South Korea. It was started at year 2008 and is now currently the biggest coffeehouse in South Korea base in the number of outlets. Caffe Bene is also known for being featured in the Drama Secret Garden!!! Yes!! The coffee from the famous foam kiss was from Caffe Bene! Do you still remember this sweet scene between Gil Ra Im (Ha Ji Won) and Joo-won (Hyun Bin).
When we entered the coffeehouse it was spacious and serene inside. It’s a place where the books and nature met. You can see arrays of bookshelves with books and mini plants on it. Have a relaxing and comfortable vibe while enjoying your stay in Caffe Bene.
After eating our lunch and was kinda full, me and Yanie decided to share a large of Cookies and Cream Bingsu and a plate of Caramel Cinnamon Honey Bread
The Caramel Cinnamon Honey Bread (P175) A thick slice of cinnamon bread topped with whipped cream, cinnamon sprinkles and honey. I really thought it will be so sweet because of the caramel and honey but I love the combination of the three flavors Its sweetness is not satiating at all thanks to the thickness of the bread. The crunchiness of the outer crust of the bread should be also given credit for the complete and perfect taste of the breas.
Cookies and Cream Bingsu (P230) Bingsu is the korean counterpart of Filipino’s Halo-Halo. It was filled with oreos, whipped cream and red beans. I didn’t expect that it will have a red beans that gave a bit of change of flavor (in a positive way) I actually prefer their red beans than the other bingsus that I tried because the red beans from Mr. Park’s was already like a paste already unlike here you can still see its bean shape.
I really recommend this place for some quiet time for finishing some reports, homeworks, reading or doing some reviews. It was peaceful and comfortable inside. I would really want to do some reviewing here if only it is near my house or my school.
