The cafe street in Jukjeon is very quaint. The street is actually several blocks of restaurants, shops, and of course, cafes. There’s the main street where pedestrians walk, but it also has many intersecting streets with different shops everywhere you turn. The street has an airy, almost European feel to it. People walking everywhere (the better the weather, the more people) and cars are only allowed in the intersecting streets. It’s beautiful in the spring when the trees come to life, and the kids play outside. It’s a great place to visit during all four seasons.
It can be tricky to find, though. It’s quite close to Jukjeon station (Bundang line), but it’s about a 10 minute walk. We found the easiest way to walk was to exit the station and walk towards Emart, with Shinsegae mall on our right. Cross the street and walk past Emart. Round around Emart, to the right, towards a bridge. Cross the bridge and take the street to the right. Follow the sidewalk, with the stream and skatepark on your right, and you’ll come to a parking lot. The entrance to Jukjeon Cafe Street is the road perpendicular to the parking lot.
Or, instead of walking, there are a couple buses you can take from Jukjeon station. Buses 24 and 40 leave from right in front of the Jukjeon station exit/Shinsegae mall entrance. Once the bus leaves, you will get off on the very next stop. Cafe street will be on your left, across the street from Starbucks.
Andrew and I had a couple restaurants we loved. Cafe Street was about a half hour from our apartment, by bus, but we often took the trip out here to enjoy our favorite places.
One of our absolute favorites is a restaurant called Brush. 기흥구 보정동 1186-6
Unfortunately, we didn’t get any snapshots of the delicious food we loved so much. But we did get some pics of the yummy drinks we tried. Andrew took me here, after work, for my birthday celebration and we were hooked from then on.
Another of our favorite restaurants is about a block away from Brush. One morning we had a hankering for breakfast foods and found this gem: Flapjack Pantry. 경기 용인시 기흥구 죽전로15번길 7-14
