Years have passed since Harry Potter movies were released in the cinema. And it's been more than 2 decades since J.K. Rowling's worldwide hit series first entered bookshops...and our hearts ? But that doesn't mean the Potter craze has ebbed and faded away. To renew your love for 'The Boy Who Lived', add Korea's latest Harry Potter-themed cafe in Busan to your list! ??⚡️
PO TID is the latest cafe to jump on the bandwagon. The store front looks right out of The Sorcerer's Stone when Harry Potter first visited Ollivander's Wand Shop in Diagon Alley. The wands on display also wouldn't go unnoticed as it adds a magical touch ?

Step into the threshold and you'll see the magical artefacts such as the stacks of "wand" boxes, the broomsticks hanging from the ceiling and a lighted up fireplace in the back as if someone just arrived using the Floo Powder ? They even have realistic paintings lining the walls! You'd almost expect the portraits to move, given how authentic the vibe is.

PO TID cafe serves ice creams and freshly baked soft, crumbly cookies. While we can't determine whether the food is Muslim-friendly, the rustic Leaky Cauldron-like interior is definitely worth dropping in for. ?

One thing's for sure, the cafe is not short on photo opportunities for Potterheads. ?

Universal Studios Japan may be home to Hogwarts and the Harry Potter world, and Seoul has more than its fair share of Harry Potter-themed cafes (like the Hogsmeade-themed cafe in Daegu). But don't cross this cafe off your list just yet ?
