While taking a one-day road trip to have lunch at a Mexican restaurant, I figured that after having an amazing meal, that a great cup of coffee was the perfect way to go next.
After my lunch, I noticed that across the street was a really interesting looking café, called Café Greeda.
From the outside it looked like it was a nice place, but inside was a whole different world.
The café was very eclectically decorated and had a lot of really interesting art to see.
There was a number of paintings in an alcove and it turned out they had been in an art show in the city of Changwon, where Café Greeda is located.
A fascinating and unique spoon sculpture was actually in two places and certainly gave the café a special feel.
There was a meeting room in the back that was all hand painted…
And on one of the walls a truly lovely painting of a person with their hair blowing in the wind.
Of course, I was there for coffee, and so I took a look at the menu that was located next to the register.
After thinking about it for a minute, I decided to get a cappuccino and an Americano coffee to try two different styles.
I found a seat in the alcove near the paintings I had mentioned and waited for my order to be ready.
After a little while, the nice staff member let me know my order was ready, so I went to pick it up.
The first thing I noticed was that the cappuccino at Café Greeda looks amazing! It has a huge dome of foam on top of the coffee, and it is generously sprinkled with cinnamon and some almond slices on top! I think this is the first time I’ve ever had a cappuccino with almonds on top!
The foam looked really nice, and it was so much fun to scoop a little bit up and try it.
After finishing playing with my drink, I stirred in the foam and cinnamon and gave the cappuccino a try.
The drink was nice and smooth with on bitterness that I could taste. The drink did have a heavy cinnamon flavor, and I think that in hindsight a little less cinnamon on top of the foam would probably be the way to go.
The cappuccino was definitely excellent though, despite being hard to taste the flavor of the coffee.
Next, I tried the Americano, or black coffee. The blend of beans they were using tasted a lot like a medium roast, and it had hints of cherry and orange in the flavors. The coffee was not bitter or acidic and had a very smooth and silky feel to it, without being oily.
The Americano was a very nice cup of coffee. If you prefer dark roasts or a very bitter brew, then perhaps another drink on the menu would be better for you.
My experience at Café Greeda was excellent. The coffee was very good for me, the location was quiet, and the interior was so interesting to look at. The next time I visit Changwon, I would definitely considering going there again!
