C27 Hongdae is located close to Hongik Univ. Station, which is a popular location in Seoul for both Koreans and foreigners, is only a 3-minute walk. The name C27 comes from the 27 different kinds of cheesecakes served in the cafe.
You can choose one of the many flavors of cheesecake available. I think this might be the largest selection of cheesecake I've ever seen in my life. Can you believe this incredible selection?
If you want to try several types of cheesecake, or just simply cannot decide which flavor to get, there are cheesecake bits, which are small servings of the cheesecake.
The cafe in itself is beautiful and the interior design and furniture are unique, catching the eyes of many customers, especially those who like to take pictures in insta-worthy places. All corners of the cafe are photo spots.
Each corner has a different concept with small intricate details so you might take about a hundred selfies here. The cafe is also large in size, so there most likely will not be a line when you visit.
Don't worry if you come in a large group because there are tables big enough to sit several people.
I recommend you stop by to enjoy a slice of cheesecake with a drink and take pictures to show your friends and family. Come with your family or friends and have a conversation or just bring a book and relax!
There were so many flavors to choose from, that I had a hard time making a decision, so I just went with the one I thought was best-looking. I liked the colors on the Wild Strawberry Cheesecake and it was perfect for me since I am indeed a berry lover. They also came out with a new dessert called the Pudding Jar Cheesecake which I had to try. For drinks, I got their number one selling Cheese Frappe.
The Wil Strawberry Cheesecake is a combination of plain cheesecake with strawberry cheese mousse, with dehydrated strawberry crumble topping. The combination of cheese and strawberry was such a good pairing, I couldn't stop going for another bite! The amalgam of all the textures was so fun to eat and the dehydrated strawberry topping gave the cake more flavor by adding a hint of sourness. If you're a fan of tart flavors, you will love this cake!
C27's brand new dessert, the Pudding Jar Cheesecake, is thick in texture with a slight cheese flavor. The cheese and chocolate blend together so well, that it felt like I was eating melted chocolate. It's quite sweet, so this dessert would be paired perfectly with an Americano or non-sweetened drink.
The picture above shows C27's all-time best-selling drink, the Cheese Frappe! It has coffee, caramel, AND cheese in it. The cheese flavor is not too strong and the drink overall isn't too sweet, so you can indulge a bit to get refreshed after a long day of exploring Hongdae.
There are also wine and other alcoholic options, which pair great with cheesecake. It can help cut some of the richness so if you're feeling like a drink, look no further!
The cafe doesn't only have good desserts and drinks, but also has a little bit of entertainment! There are old-school games that remind you of when you were at the arcade when you were younger.
The rollercoaster in the middle of the room is not only for decoration! You can get on it and if you press a button, the wind will blow on you to stimulate a rollercoaster ride.
For those looking for a souvenir, there are goods with the C27 logo such as a C27 tumbler, a pouch, pen, and much more. If you fall for their desserts, you might be intrigued and want to remember this place with a nice souvenir.
If you go to Hongdae, make sure to stop by C27! Take some pictures and have a piece of cheesecake!
