There’s something about daisies that exude bright and bubbly energy. Perhaps it explains why at Mahogany Coffee, it’s all about positive vibes. The cafe is surrounded by thousands of daisies that instantly bring a smile to your face, and to be honest, that feeling is hard to beat.

The moment you approach the cafe, you’ll be greeted by a stretch of daisies from the entrance. These daisies are not just any daisies – they’re known as shasta daisies.

Shasta daisies are perennial plants, which means that they can live for more than two years. In contrast, annual and biennial plants have a shorter lifespan of 1 and 2 years respectively.

According to people who have visited the cafe, the shasta daisies remind them of a sunny-side up, and it’s not hard to see why.

The white petals look like egg whites, while the yellow centre resembles the yolk of a sunny-side up.
Desserts that are too pretty to be eaten

Near the cafe, there’s a cake factory cafe that specialises in cakes.
While you can get coffee and desserts at Mahogany Coffee, you might want to also pay a visit to the cake factory cafe if you’re a fan of cakes!

But don’t worry, you’re not missing out if you plan to stay at Mahogany Coffee. You can try their signature Daisy Cake (KRW9,500, ~USD7.58), which screams flower power.

Their Mugwort Cream Daisy Bread (KRW4,800, ~USD3.83) is another popular choice. The addition of mugwort may sound odd, but it’s a commonly eaten ingredient in Korea.
Take note that the mugwort bread sells out fast. If you want to give it a shot, make sure you visit the cafe during the day.

Mahogany Coffee doesn’t only sell daisy cakes and bread. There’s a variety of other pastries and drinks to choose from, such as the Almond Cream Cold Brew (KRW8000, ~USD6.39) and Plain Scones (KRW4,200, ~USD3.35).

What’s more, the weather in May and June is just nice for taking a stroll around the spacious field and snapping photos in the sunlight.
