T-Moment doesn’t remember days, it remembers memories


Jeonju was hot as the weather was in its sunny day of 29 degrees. It was supposed to not hot for me, but I didn’t know why I felt so dizzy. After one time round in the Jeonju Hanok Village, I decided to stop somewhere and did some works in my laptop. That was when I saw a big T red sign in a bunker building. I crossed the street and as I was going closer I could see the clearest sign of T-Moment Cafe & Galery right in front of the building.

Just like the name of this cafe, the moment I stepped my feet I took my camera and started to capture the first sculpture I found right in front of the cafe.

“Ow! This cafe is so much about me” That was I said to myself. I went to order some iced drinks, and grabbed a seat in the nice spot.

T-Moment was very nice for someone who likes enjoying art and drinking coffee like me. It was great to be able to enjoy both of those my favorite things after a long hot round walking from morning.

The long wood table

I love how they arranged the cafe, simple yet nice. There were chairs in front of the cafe for those who wanted to enjoy the street view right close to the street. There were three long wood tables in the middle of the first floor, which were nice if you had brought a large group. Next to the tables, there was a computer with many books, which they probably arranged it for customers who likes to read something.

As the computer was located under the stairs, you could probably guess that were the stairs to go to the second floor. The second floor was a wider U letter space. There were many chairs you could grab to sit, some closure with the clear window and you could enjoy view the street from it.

The Gallery

There was a bunch of paintings in the walls in the first and second floors. Some nice spots for those who want to held a secret meeting on the second floor. Right next to the stairs, there was another room with some chairs and paintings on the wall.

I really love how they arrange so many cute things around the cafe. I found dolls, SNS pictures from customers who took pictures of what they ordered, even

The star of this cafe was the tree inside of it. At first, I did not know if it was planted on purpose or if it was there before they built this cafe. I figured it out later, that the tree is still alive. Even before the building was built, the tree has been there for 50 years.

Right behind it, there were 2 doors. I thought it was just a broken door, but then I found out that it was the restrooms. It looked old from outside, but clean and modern restroom just behind the doors. There were other small plants you might find in other corners inside the cafe.

As for my nice spot was in a space next to the stairs. In the corner where they put the plugs. You probably can guess, I needed to charge all my gadgets so that was a perfect spot for me. It was messing with my stuffs though.

It’s more than just a coffee

I just realized that it was not selling coffee only, but it was also selling beer. When reading books with coffee is too mainstream, they probably started reading books with beer. There were cakes, ice creams, and other fresh beverages you could find. They even made me my favorite iced green tea latte, and good music played when I was there.

If you happen to come to the Jeonju Hanok Village, why don’t you stop by this cafe and enjoy art for a moment.

What a nice stop at T-Moment Cafe & Gallery in Jeonju, South Korea.
