Sipping a cup of coffee is enjoyable on its own. But Korea’s added some extra fun to cafes with some unique and interesting themes, to take the experience to a new level!
“If there’s one thing I love about Korea, it’s the unique cafe culture; and I’m not talking about your average coffee house brewing vanilla lattes, no! Themed cafes in Seoul are wildly popular, and it seems that the wackier the idea, the bigger the clientele.” – AUDREY BERGNE
