Unlike other cafes that focus only on coffee, Picnicker specialises in fruit drinks and desserts. It sells fresh fruit beverages such as tea, ade, juice, and smoothies, as well as desserts such as fruit yogurt and cakes.

The bestselling drink at Picnicker is the Mango Smoothie (KRW8,000, ~USD5.57), which is decadently topped with a generous helping of fresh mango. And if you’ve been to Korea, you know that fruits aren’t cheap, so this drink is bouje.

Try the Tangerine Bianco (KRW7,000, ~USD4.88), which has 3 pretty layers of espresso, milk, and preserved tangerines. It has a great mix of sweet and sour, and is packed with a caffeine punch as well.

Also, get the popular Iced Persimmon Yogurt (KRW7,000, ~USD4.88), which is both healthy and delicious. It consists of a mildly sweet yogurt garnished with sweet frozen persimmons.

Note that as the fruits are seasonal, you should visit Picnicker in January and February for the strawberry and tangerine season, and May to October for the mango season.
