Themed Cafes in Seoul

Sharing is caring!

Seoul could be known as the café capital soon, as its nearly impossible to walk an entire block without seeing a famous coffee chain such as Costa or Caffe Bene, but as new chain cafes seem to sprout from the ground, its closely followed by unique themed cafes that rely on their novelty to attract customers. This has led to nearly hundreds of different types of themed cafes, here are some of our favorites in Seoul!

Thanks Nature Cafe (The Sheep Cafe)

Anything involving animals can be spoiled quite easily, but the main attraction at Thanks Nature Cafe is of course the sheep, which seem incredibly well looked after. You can of course pet and feed the sheep, their enclosures seem cleaned often and most importantly the animals get a lot of love!

Address: 344-1 Seogyo-dong Mapo-gu, Seoul.

Air Cafe (비행기까페)

Based on the theme of travel, the Air Cafe will make you feel like you’re getting ready to board an airplane. Meals are named after countries and are thankfully more delicious than normal airplane food. The interior will make you wish you were doing what we love best, traveling!

Address: 404-19 Seogyo-dong, Mapo-gu, Seoul, South Korea.

Hoho Myoll Cafe

A lot of Asians think there is no car cuter than the Volkswagen Beetle or Van, and this is shown in the Hoho Myoll Cafe which features a real Volkswagen van. This cafe is more for the vintage car fans, but if you’re not so interested in cars, at least you can actually sip your coffee while sitting inside the Volkswagen! Look out for the cute grey cat Myoll that lives there!

Address: 93-44 Mapo-gu, Sangsu-dong, Seoul.

Bau House Dog Cafe (바우하우스 애견카페)

If you’re scared of dogs like the majority of Koreans, then this seriously isn’t the place for you. I mean, who the heck can be scared of something so freaking adorable? The staff at Bau House Dog Cafe seem to play and love the dogs just as much as the customers! It’s one of the most famous dog cafes in Seoul and for a good reason! Every dog seems well looked after, and you can even bring your own dog to get them use to other dogs!

You Are Here

If you’re a fan of Eat Your Kimchi or Talk to Me in Korea you would probably already know about this cafe. Based on the theme of learning languages, You Are Here is a surprisingly sweet spot. We weren’t always fans of EYK but we’ve grown to respect them, especially after visiting their coffee shop. It’s a great place to study and socialize with like-minded people!

Cupcake Factory

Another way to fulfill your sweet tooth while enjoying your coffee is the cupcake factory. While the design isn’t as interesting as Monster Cupcakes, the taste is just as good, if not better. There are so many variations in taste and composition, you’ll be surprised with what they can’t do to a cupcake!

Agreable Flowers & Cafe

Cat Attic Cafe

Miss Lee Cafe (별다방미스리)
