MOST417 is located in Anseong, a city in Gyeonggi Province that is about an hour away from Seoul by bus. 

If you’re planning to visit the cafe, you’d probably be able to spot it afar as MOST417’s magnificent Eiffel Tower is hard to miss.

For the best views of the iconic structure, we recommend dining al fresco, where there are seats spread out on the spacious lawn.

Unfortunately, swimming is not actually allowed in the pool.
