Really beautiful view with nice coffee and food. The service was a bit slow tho it was fine because while I was waiting i got soup and some pickles. I saw two people only working there. A Man in suit and the lady. I was...surprised because I have never seen a man in suit making a coffee for me. I recommend going to this place just for chilling, relaxing and enjoying the view the staff are very nice and they were helpful.More

We had 2 coffees and 2 paninis. The coffee was OK and the Panini was also OK although my 4 year old said the ham cheese panini was the best she had ever had. The food took a long time to come but we were...given pickles and corn soup while we waited, the staff member (who seems to be working alone) is nice. The food on its own would be expensive here but their package with coffee takes the sting out.More

We stopped here around 10am for breakfast. They didn't seem prepared for any customers and the woman was in the kitchen washing dishes. Maybe they were done with their breakfast rush. After getting her attention, she was very friendly and we ordered 2 entrees, fries,...a coffee and a juice. It took a while for the order to come out but I know she was preparing everything alone. We received some broccoli cheddar soup and pickles to hold us over. A thoughtful gesture. The food was mediocre American diner style food. Not a ton of flavor but we were very hungry and ate it all. I ordered the "spicy" chicken panini, but it was just plain boiled chicken with no spice. My orange juice was good and my fiance enjoyed his vanilla latte. I would suggest a quick stop for drinks rather than eating a full breakfast here. All in all, we spent 35,000 won, which seemed pretty steep for the quality.More

This place was a lucky find as it’s hard to find a good breakfast spread in S. Korea I wasn’t a hotel guest but the waiter went above in beyond making sure I knew what there was to eat and had a coffee. He even...made me a very special coffee on the house! Very sweet man, will definitely be back next time I’m in Busan near HaeundaeMore

Went here for lunch. The paninis are average at best and for the price (7000won) the orange juice was highly dissapointing. Although it was large it was mostly crushed ice so it tasted very watered down. At the end of our meal a man came...out of nowhere and offered us a small plate of tomatoes and cashew nuts. This random final act seemed like a bizarre and desperate plea for our approval, but unfortunately this didn't work, thus my dismal review. I dunno why this place has such good reviews I guess the buffet is good.More

Seven of us went to lunch on a Monday at 11:40 and ordered at the counter. The restaurant was completely empty. It took 20 minutes for them to take the order. It was simple: 4 paninis and 3 crepes plus coffee and smoothies. Just after...we ordered, a Korean group of 3 women came in and ordered after us. They didn't realize that one of our group speaks fluent Korean. He heard them ask to be served "before the foreigners". Sure enough, they were served about 20 minutes later. 45 minutes after we ordered (more than an hour after we arrived), just two of our orders came out. The remaining paninis and crepes came out about one or two every 15 minutes. Coffees and smoothies took another half hour before they were all delivered. 1 hour and 30 minutes after we ordered, we were still waiting on the last panini. The paninis were average (though all the ingredients and salad seemed fresh). The crepes were a strange mix of entree and dessert. We ordered ham and cheese crepes and a spicy chicken crepe. When they were finally delivered they had the correct ingredients inside but chocolate sauce, caramel sauce, and ice cream on top. Very strange. Overall a very disappointing experience. I don't know if they had new employees or what the problem was, but service was unacceptably slow and the food was just ok and a strange mix of ingredients.More

After reading all the great reviews on trip advisor about this place. I thought I should try this restaurant out in Busan. I ordered the seafood pasta. It tasted like ketchup mixed with pasta. Our waiter was the one who cooked our food which was...kind of odd. I would not recommend this place to anyone.More

This is a wonderful place to get your morning coffee. The owner is very pleasant and sweet. She gave us free tumeric covered cashews and chocolate covered sticks. We had two cafe lattes and it was wonderful~ But the music was too loud and all...over the place for our taste. It would be nice if they played calm and relaxing music like slow Latin/jazz/r&b/soul/classic music in low volume in the morning. We would like to visit again to try their food.More

We stayed at the Sunset Hotel and this restaurant is on the 3rd story. Our first night in town, we didnt feel like venturing out after traveling. We were greeted quickly and the staff was friendly. We ordered iced tea and the chicken fried rice....It wad so good! There is no description, so just know the rice comes w a sunny side up egg on top in case you dont like that but it was so good. We went back the nezt day for breakfast. It had toast, cereal, yogurt and lots of fruit. There were Korean dishes also but I didnt eat any because Im not use to that for breakfast. You can see the beach from the window seats. It was very nice, clean and reasonably priced. There was seating for small and large groups.More
