Cafés with Great Views Overlooking Jeonju Hanok Village


The view overlooking Jeonju Hanok Village from above is stunning and exotic. The black tiled roofs of the old hanok (Korean traditional building) buildings harmonize with more modern buildings, such as Jeondong Cathedral. Today, I’ll introduce three cafes at Jeonju Hanok Village famous for the view overlooking the village.

Café Jeonmang

The first café is ‘Jeonmang’.

I took the elevator to go to the fourth floor.

There are three pages of menus, including coffees, frappes, aides, smoothies, teas, iced teas, and even ice creams and beers.

Several cakes were also on the menu. I’m sure the menu will cater to a variety of tastes.

This is the view from the fourth floor. Jeonju Hanok Village is under my feet!

The interior is wide and pleasant. There are many tables with different sizes.

The antiques were decorating the café.

I used the stairs to go to the fifth floor.

This is the view from the fifth floor. The view was nice although the it was rather cloudy.

There are plenty of seats on the fifth floor too. I couldn’t take pictures of all tables, because of the other patrons. But I loved the terrace table and the traditional chair table.

This is the view from the terrace. I find this spot very instagrammable. It must be beautiful in the evening sunset.

It says that local live in the hanok right underneath the building, hence photo is prohibited.

The decorations on the fifth floor are also quite vintage.

At the entrance of the fifth floor is the palm-reading machine and a grab-a-prize machine.



Address: Hanjigil 89, Wansangu, Jeonju

Opening hours: Monday~Thursday 10:00–22:00 / Friday 10:00–23:00 / Saturday 9:00-23:00 / Sunday 9:00-22:00


Jeonmangdae Café

The second café is ‘Jeonmangdae Café’.

The entrance is quite nice.

I took the elevator to get to the third floor.


Go left and you can order there.

On the menu are coffee and other beverages and patisserie stuffs like tarts and scones.

This is the view. I couldn’t take many photos because of other patrons.

The inside was wide with lots of tables. There were also old Korean style floor seats. Must be nice to take photo here in hanbok (Korean traditional costume).

There were also terrace seats. I loved the abundance of plants in the café.

These are the photos from the terrace. Another floor up has no table, but has a viewpoint too.

​Jeonmangdae Café

Address: Eojingil 15, Wansangu, Jeonju

Opening hours: every day 9:00 ~ 24:00



The last café is ‘Tomorrow’.

There’s no elevator in the building.

On the menu are coffees, juices, smoothies, teas, brownies, cakes, and even beers and wines.

This is the smallest café of today, but the coziest.

This table next to the big window seemed to be the most popular.

Turns out that this café appeared on CNN. I wish Jeonju Hanok Village becomes more popular.

I found the view from the terrace much better than inside. There’s also the rooftop, but the stairs were steep and narrow. I recommend enjoying the view from the terrace.



Address: Kirindaero 71, Wansangu, Jeonju

Opening hours: every day 11:00 – 22:00

Today, I visited three cafés in Jeonju Hanok Village renowned for the view. These cafes must be a great place to rest your feet. I went on a cloudy day, but the view must be much better when the sky is clear and the sun is setting, turning everything into orange and blue.

    Comparing and contrasting the three featured cafes, it seems like Cafe Jeonmang has the best overlooking view atop Jeonju Hanok Village. Interestingly, Cafe Jeonmang also doubles as a guesthouse! Jeonmangdae Cafe appears to have many plants within the interior. An exotic way to enjoy looking from above over Jeonju Hanok Village.

    In today’s world, Tourism does not merely mean a vacation, a source of entertainment, or a way of expanding one’s knowledge but tourism in the recent years has emerged as one of the most important socio-economic section of the city Jeonju. Tourism promotes National integration and International understanding. Jeonju heritage villages offers the rich heritage of art, architecture, pre-historic spots, places of historical importance,….etc. All speak of the infinite possibility of Jeonju becoming a favourite tourist destination.
