These days, people are hesitant to go outside due to the fine dust and freezing weather that continues even in the cold. How about a cafe that makes you feel good with warm coffee and the soft aroma of coffee that spreads softly? A group of people can share stories about Dorando or spend quiet time alone. Among them, the second cafe, which offers a different concept and additional menu from the previous first store, is popular. From Eulji-ro sentimental cafes in Busan to cafes with an atmosphere that makes you feel like you've visited a winter lodge, and places that have been transformed into a modern look unlike the first vintage store! How about spending a warm time at the second cafe, which is more attractive than the first one?

â²Location: 13, Gangnam-daero 110-gil, Gangnam-gu, Seoul
â²Business hours: 11:00 – 22:00 every day
â²Price: Matcha 6,500 won, panna cotta 5,000 won
â²Review (Shikigami del.e): For me, the Sinnonhyeon branch was better than the Jamsil branch! It was quieter than the Jamsil branch, and I was rather intoxicated by that atmosphere, so I had a great time even though I went alone. Furthermore, the panna cotta was even more delicious than the one I ate last time, so I went home feeling comforted after work. I was always disappointed because there aren't any good cafes on the Gangnam side, but I think I'll be happy to go there often:)

â²Testimonial (Gem Shikigami looking for a friend): Seeing the Instagram photos here made me really want to go there. It was as good as I expected, hehe, it's the best supplement for chocolate cream as a supplement to the signature drink! The sweet flavor is balanced by the acidic coffee. From the rabbit carvings at the entrance to the trees stacked on top of each other, it's a beautiful place with a winter feel.
