& White Café and Restaurant

Coastal Italian Restaurant and Dessert Cafe “& White”

Address: 580, Oesan-ro, Donghae-myeon, Goseong-gun

The dessert café “& White” is like a fusion of a traditional teahouse, a dessert café, and an Italian restaurant, all with a coastal view.

Here I drank goji tea, or 구기자 pronounced “googey” in Korean. It is a healthy tea with a very mild taste and a slight earthy flavor like barley tea.

The goji is a berry that some consider a superfood. Had I known they are sometimes eaten raw, I think I would have totally tried to eat them after letting them seep in the water. They look like raisins are apparently are sometimes eaten dried like raisins too.

Aside from a bunch of healthy traditional tea, & White also features oven-grilled pizza and vegetables, yeast garlic bread, waffle, churros, and wine.

The interior is filled with all kinds of interesting things, including the white upright bass (or cello?) across from the oven.

Many of the tables are carved out of wood, including one table that appears to be from a single stump.

Most of the seating is along the window with a view of the sea and mountains.

The weather was misty and rainy on one of the days I visited.
