Located just off the main street of the Hongdae area, ‘a;t fox’ is probably one of a few cafes where you can enjoy a great afternoon tea, dessert, and trendy cosmetics all in one spot.
The ‘a;t’ in a;t fox stands for afternoon tea, and the café gives you the feeling of being invited over to a posh afternoon tea party. The tea is served in antique teapots on ornate dessert trays.
Displayed on the walls next to the cozy tables are British style-tea sets and colorful bottles filled homemade tea and syrups.
However, what makes this café stand out is its beautiful powder room fully equipped to allow women to put on make-up and test the cosmetics displayed on the table.
The cosmetics are made by the same company as the café, and made with ingredients used to make tea such as jasoyup (perilla frutescens) and tangerine peels, which are known to help with skin problems.
Visitors are welcomed to test the shop’s popular cosmetics such as black tea mist, moisturizing cream in a cupcake-like container, and jasoyup BB cream. The friendly and knowledgeable staff will assist you while giving you some useful make-up tips.
Though having the famous ‘The 1st Shop of Coffee Prince’ as a neighbor helps, the unique concept and quality products at ‘a;t fox’ is attracting international and local visitors.
