The cafe is most well-known for its scenery in spring. Gorgeous cherry blossom trees and the Suseongmot lake can be seen through clear glass-panelled walls. For a better vantage point, head up to the cafe’s 2nd floor.

While some may prefer to admire the fantastic view from indoors, you can also choose to sit at the 2nd floor outdoor terrace, from which you can take in fresh air along with the view, all while munching on your food or sipping your drinks. 

Enjoy open-air busking performances

The cafe also hosts open-air busking around once a week. Their schedule isn’t very consistent so it’s best to check the upcoming lineup through their Instagram page. Their frequent performers include Luen, breaktime, and Once again

Getting to ANGELINUS Island

ANGELINUS Island may not be the most accessible of places as a large lake partially obstructs the path towards the nearest station. However, the very same lake and the cherry blossom trees around it make the 1-km walk from the station exceptionally scenic. Alternatively, it is an 8-minute taxi ride from Suseongmot Station. 

How to get there:

  • Take the Daegu Metro Line 3 to Suseongmot Station and leave by Exit 1.
  • Walk straight for 5 minutes, before crossing the road and taking the middle path.
  • Continue walking straight alongside Suseongmot Lake and turn right after 5 minutes, following the edges of the lake.
  • Walk straight for 5 more minutes and you’ll reach ANGELINUS Island.
