This Hidden Cafe Pat-ZZI in Busan cannot be found on Google

Established in Busan since 2014, Cafe Pat-ZZI is a little known cafe whose name cannot be found on Google. Needless to say, most tourists don't know about it. At first glance, it looks like an unassuming shop that sells fashion accessories but this hidden gem also offers a great view of Busan. We were lucky to chanced upon the shop and did a stopover at Cafe Pat-ZZI.

Cafe Pat-ZZI Exterior

I love buildings made of wood. They feel so natural, it's like walking into a forest and they fit so much with nature. From cottage houses to high rise buildings and windmills, Cafe Pat-ZZI has different types of iconic buildings drilled into their wooden storefront. Aren't they pretty enchanting?

Interior of Pat-ZZI Cafe at Busan

The first level is pretty whimsical - the dessert menu is presented on a wooden television chalkboard and I can't help but think that the oar is meant to make the white space feel less empty. Wooden chairs are painted in dull colours, an obvious attempt by the owner to try and exhibit a welcoming, homely sense to every patron.

Second level of Cafe Pat-ZZI

I felt like I was stepping into a totally different world when I entered the second floor. Rooftops are often a signature of korean dramas, and this makes a perfect place for romance to brew. The second level overlloks the entire Gamcheon cultural village. Just add on a few fairy lights and it will definitely look magical at night!
