    Location and Wait Time

    Located on the 2nd floor of a building on Daeheung Rd., next to the long walking street of the Gyeongui Line Park (경의선공원), Dear moment can be easily accessed by taking Seoul Subway Line 6. Then alight at Daeheung Station (대흥역) and get out of exit 3. Every spring, visitors to the café are in for a treat when the cherry tree lined road starts to turn pinkish white turning the spot into a popular destination during the blooming season. As a result, there may be a wait time when visiting the café during this time of year.
