*About us*
We are running a small vegan cafe on the island of Jeju, South Korea. We try to use local, and organic ingredients as much as possible. It is small, but as we make most things from scratch, there is a lot more work than we imagined!

We make all our desserts, bread, and food, and always looking for ways to diversify our menu.
The building took us a lot of hard work to transform from an empty, tired shell into a functional cafe. We have a strong DIY ethic and try to find novel and unusual ways to solve a problem.

We have used HelpX in the past as helpers, and enjoyed it tremendously. Our cafe gets both Korean and foreign visitors, so there is a certain international vibe.

We speak Korean and English.

*Type of work*
We are running a small, independent business but we are not in it for the money. We are looking for one lovely person to help out in the cafe (waiting tables, talking to customers, making drinks, washing up) mainly during the busier lunch times. You would also be welcome to learn about vegan cooking, baking and Korean fermentation techniques. Or experiment with your own dishes!

Wholesome vegan food is provided (of course) and accommodation is in an apartment with your own room.

*Around and about*
Our cafe is very close to the sea, and just down the road from two beautiful white sandy beaches (Hyeopjae and Guemneung). Plenty of places to explore, bus stops close by, and a couple of supermarkets in walking distance. Jeju is a fantastic island to visit, full of hidden gems and incredible scenery. The island is dominated by the nearly 2000m Halla-san mountain, the highest peak in South Korea. Jeju is also famous for the female women divers (haenyeo), which can be seen dotted of the shoreline on a daily basis.
