Anchor 1883 is a café remodeled from a crab cold storage and a factory for boat supplies. The sandy beach–like floor, steel pillars, exposed ceiling, and snow-white parasols create a strange yet beautiful scene. As you enter Anchor 1883, you are welcomed by a sculpture of a northern white rhino, an endangered species.

Inside the café, a view of the blue ocean greets you. Table reflections on the floor make you feel like you’re floating on the sea. The place also hosts fascinating art exhibits. Anchor 1883 is where visitors can enjoy art exhibits while enjoying their beverages and desserts.

The number 1883 in its name represents the year Jemulpo Port opened, and the café also has some historical legacy tied to it. The second-floor outdoor sitting area offers a view of the Qing Chinese settlement’s masonry. The stairs leading up to the rooftop area are called Sabatin stairs. It is named after Afanasy Ivanovich Seredin-Sabatin, a Russian architect who entered the country when Jemulpo Port opened. Sabatin built key buildings of the port and Dongnimmun Gate. As you can see, the building hosted almost everything about Incheon in 1883.

No vacation could be more perfect than this, with the café’s pastries and healthy vegan desserts baked fresh every morning.

The “#WhyDon’tIHaveACat” hashtag is popular among online cat lovers who don’t have their own cats. All online cat lovers who don’t have a cat to serve can gather at Cat Station Café to cry out “#IHaveACatToo” even for a day.

Though you’re worried about going the right way, you’re definitely on the right track. Open the gate, and you will be awestruck by the view of a whole new world. You will be greeted by 80 cats saying, “Oh, we got another hooman” on the green lawn.

The most iconic feature of this place, however, is the train. The café was built using scrap materials collected in the neighborhood and materials donated by the residents to the owner. The train was one of the donations and is now the café’s symbol. It represents the owner’s wishes to invite stray cats into the place with the train ride and offer them happy lives. Such a heart turned this place into a haven for cats and humans. Pat cats lying on the lawn and basking in the sun as if letting go of their dark past. You will find yourself not only patting a cat but your heart as well.

Woods grow around a very unexpected area, a church. The building used to be a church built in the early 1900s, now renovated into a café. The stained glass on the building’s facade tells people what purpose it served years before. Colorful glass windows glow under the sun and moonlight, day and night.

The main building, Hall of The Forest, has a unique theme related to the forest on each floor, staying true to its name, “a place that made the forest (林, lim).” There is also a gigantic tree that cuts through this forest. The first basement floor is themed with the earth’s creation with tree roots, designed like a cave of prehuman times. On the first floor of the water and sky theme, the floor is reflected on the lit ceiling, rendering you awestruck.

The tree that towers from the first basement floor spreads its leaves on the second floor, the split level from the second floor, and the third floor. The second floor, the First Garden, and the third floor, the Space of Water and Sky, create a large forest together. A lush green forest, stepping stones under the bright light coming through the stained glass windows, and tables under the water create a mystic background for your photos.

MADE林 (MADE Lim) also offers jazz performances and art exhibitions, aiming to create a space of culture. The café is also preparing to stage musical gala shows, so if you’re a musical fan, hurry up and schedule your visit to Yeongjongdo Island

After satisfying your eyes, ears, and mouth with lush greenery, impressive performances, and delicious food, it is now time to fill your soul in a clean and tranquil space. Look up to the sky and pray for your wishes. It will give you the strength to take the next step in your life.
