Very cute cosy cafe with great service. The woman that served us was really nice and polite. We went there for breakfast-ish so it was very quite. The food was lovely and the 2 sheep were cute. Definitely going back when I go back to...Korea.More

Went in today for a snack. The Waffles were big and very good. Not to sure about how god it is for the sheep but they did look well looked after to me.

Luckily for us it wasn't a crowded day when we got there. Ordered a warm cup of Vanilla Latte(so delicious!) and enjoyed the cafe's interior. There were lots of plants & wood furniture that gives it a cosy environment. The sheep were just outside, waited...for people to leave before I entered the play area. It was such a pleasant experience seeing sheep up close for the very first time. Made friends with the 2 sheep - Ara & Rio! The owner of the cafe happened to be walk over and tidy up the floor. He spoke simple English, introduced the sheep names, age and made small talks. The sheep became more playful when he was around showed the owner really cares for his sheep. We were also given some treats to feed the sheep! Stayed till the sheep finished their meals and it was time for us to say goodbye. Overall a great experience! This cafe is setup at a good location - Hongdae not too far off Hongik University Station. There could be instances when the staff might be busy in the cafe. Whilst mingling with the sheep I think as customers of the cafe we can help to clean up the mess the sheep made so they can have a clean area. At the same time, let other customers enjoy the same amount of fun as we did:)More

Firstly there are only two sheep! Secondly the cafe seems like a completely separate entity. The cafe is not an animal themed cafe. It seems as though it's just a cafe!!

We had a great time here! Tom and Jerry (sheep) were so fluffy and soft. The food at the cafe was super yummy. You can tell the sheep are well looked after and happy. The owner was very kind and gentle with the sheep and...he was very pleasant with us as well. If you have children I would definitely visit this cafe! Even if you don’t have children the sheep are cute and the food yummy.More

Visited this place during our South Korea trip simply because I love sheep and therefore thought a sheep café would be a lovely experience, but this place was even better than expected! Made some awesome friends there as you can see, miss them a lot🐑...I ate a coffee flavoured waffle here and drank a frappuccino, and the taste from both was incredibly delicious. Also, the interior and atmosphere inside the café was really nice, got some nature vibes here for sure. A café living up to its name, definitely worth a visit if you have a big heart for animals and/or are looking for something sweet to indulge in☺️More

I bought my nine-year-old daughter and 12-year old niece to Thanks Nature during a family vacation in Seoul. The cafe is a very pleasant experience. Nicely designed in that the cafe is separate from the nearby sheep area. First, the cafe. Very spacious,wonderful selection of...drinks and outstanding bakery type of foods - especially fresh baked bread offerings. Outside the cafe is a small area for two sheep who are gentle and don’t mind the kids petting their soft fur. It’s a clean, well-kept area where the owners clearly try their best to take nice care of the sheep and watch out over them when they interact with guests. In all, this is definitely one of the nicer animal cafe experiences because of the set up, food offerings and laid back atmosphere. We really enjoyed it and night recommend.More

It's an interesting place the sheep are kept in a pen outside the Cafe. The Cafe drinks are average and a bit pricy

The cafe is divided into two portions: one being the inside and the other being the outside. The indoor section is very earthy toned with browns and greens adorning the interior. Compared to the outdoor part, the indoor cafe is very large and specious. When...you get a chance to hang out with the sheep, tom and jerry are absolutely sweet and will stay by you as long as you stay beside them . Sheep feel really fluffy and cottony to the touch and it’s a great experience to interact with the animals. The owner is really kind and polite . As I adore the waffles 🥰🥞, strawberry smoothie that’s makes me in great mood 👍🏻More

1. Mistreatment of animals: Though the lambs are very cute, the overall cleanliness is terrible with both the bigs and smalls all over the place. 2. Awful service: The cafe was fully packed on the day (Wednesday) we visited. As more people came, the owner...asked us to leave while our drinks are still half full! Such a rude manner in treating your customer. It is WAY TOO COMMERCIALIZED! DEFINITELY NOT RECOMMENDED!More
