What used to be an unassuming residential area has in recent years become another popular cafe destination in Busan. Step aside, Jeonpo Cafe Street; you’re not the only caffeinated game in town.
Oncheoncheon Stream is a lovely place to take a long walk most of the year. In the spring the area’s cherry blossom blooms are resplendent, while autumn brings beautiful fall foliage.
The stretch from Yeonsan-dong to Allak-dong is considered Oncheoncheon Cafe Street. There are more than 60 businesses here, including small and midsize cafes, bakeries, restaurants, bookstores, pubs, gallery space and more.
Businesses here feature unique interiors as much of the architecture is decades old. Enjoy tasty coffees, filling meals and sweet desserts while supporting local, independent businesses. Take a casual walk around the surrounding neighborhood and then hop back along the Oncheoncheon Stream path to casually burn off some of those delicious calories.
Oncheoncheon Cafe Street is a great area to visit both during the day and after the sun sets. While there are plenty of places to walk around the area, parking isn’t always the most accessible, however, so plan accordingly. It is generally a better idea to take public transportation.
How to get there: Allak Station (Donghae Line), exit 1. Walk straight and cross the street toward Dranche Apartment (뜨란채 아파트) at the end of a parking area. Walk straight toward Oncheoncheon Stream for 10 minutes.
