King's Cross, a Harry Potter themed cafe in Hongdae, Seoul, Korea - Tasteem Review

in #tasteem3 years ago


Hey everyone!
I hope you are having a great weekend ~ Today I get to introduce some really interesting cafe to you guys!
Be sure to check it out if you are a Harry Potter fan :)

The cafe is called King's Cross and located in the Hongdae area in Seoul!


I'm not a super big Harry Potter fan but my wife is, so we had to check out this place ~
Below you can see that each floor has a separate theme


Here are some more pictures we took during our visit so you can get a better feeling for the atmosphere.



We ordered a hibiscus ade a "butter beer" and a birthday cake. The ade was okay but the "beer", which is a caramel machiatto essentially, was almost sickenly sweet ... The cake was also nothing special!


I still recommend to visit there but definitely not for the coffee or desserts!

What is your recommendation when visiting this Cafe beside being a Harry Potter fan? I'm genuinely curious.

Well definitely not the drinks or desserts, I would rather go to another cafe if you are not a Harry Potter fan :)
I talked about the taste of the drinks but you skipped that part in your quote hehe.
Also thanks for posting the contest rules but I didn't break any of them.

Hi unfixable,

Thank you for your kind feedback. The reason for a warning command because I found this post was insufficient and lacking in detail about the food/drinks and restaurant. I was trying to help you to improve your post by giving a suggestive question on how and why this restaurant is good to bring friends if the food or drink in this restaurant is not recommended.
Logically speaking, you won't bring your friends to a restaurant/cafe that serves bad food and drink and you can't just sit there without ordering anything just because the restaurant/cafe looks good. This will help you to enlighten the readers and other Tasteemers.

The rules included in the comment were meant to be a standard layout.

You can take the suggestion and improve your post or leave it. However, having a good post will likely to get you a curate command and thus resulting in a bigger upvote. I only tried to help.

I have seen this place a few times but I was never convinced to go inside. I think if you like Harry Potter, 8t will be nice though.

Yeah if you like Harry Potter it's interesting! If you are not a fan I'd rather skip this place :)

I love all THESE!!! I'm a HP fan, so this is very cool to me.

Was it your birthday? I bet my sister would love to see that place because she's a fan. Thanksfor sharing this with us!

Wow, they really put a lot of effort into making this place. Next time I'm in Seoul, I'll have to check it out!

I know someone who loves to visit this place. The cake and drink look delicious though. But I guess, don't judge the book by its cover.
