[Tips]

The crazy thing is because this cafe is pretty new (newly opened less than 1 months) so you might have to queue to visit this cafe. I queued for 1 hour before I can enter and experience the cafe. The  cafe opens at 11.30am during weekday,  but people already queue from 10.30am. Crazy! You also need to queue for trying the uniform. 181128KCCH-2493

Zapangi Cafe

Everyone must know the most famous vending machine in Korea. Eventually this vending machine is actually the main door of Zapangi Cafe which is so cute, unique, iconic, and instagram-worty. Even though the location of this cafe is somehow far from the main city area, but many people do visit this cafe to experience entering the inside of vending machine while taking picture beside the vending machine is a must.

Once you get inside the vending machine, you will see a simply minimalist-style interior of Zapangi Cafe with some pink color ornament as theit iconic color. The room is not that big, it’s on the first floor of apartment building in residence area. But when you have a really good concept and marketing of a cafe, people will definetly value it.

They dont have that many kind of menu, but most of them are so cute with some special detailed colorful ornament on the drink / cake. One of the most favorit one is Rainbow Sherbet with the colorful cream and unicorn cookie as topping.

Style Nanda Pink Pool Cafe Hongdae

One of the most popular cafe recently in Seoul is Style Nanda Pink Pool Cafe. This cafe belongs to cosmetic brand 3ce which opened its first joint cosmetic store and cafe in Myeongdong. However, they also opened the second flagship store in Hongdae area, which is so much bigger and better. The first floor of the building is cosmetic section, while second and third floor is clothes section. Pink Pool Cafe is located on 4th floor. It is said Pink Pool Cafe because the cafe really have pink pool inside it. Moreover, no wonder the name is pink cafe because the main interior design color is pink for the wall and blue for the ceramics. If you manage to visit Hongdae, make sure to visit the flagstore which is only 10 mins walking away from Hongdae Subway Station.
