â²Location: 7 Yeonhui-ro, Mapo-gu, Seoul
â²Opening hours: 12:00 – 22:00 every day, closed on Mondays
â²Price: Handmade vanilla bean latte 5,000 won, crunch brownie 5,000 won
â²Review (Shikigin Zero Cola): It is said to be the second place for the famous Gump Coffee in Chungmuro. Even though it was more spacious, the cozy feeling was better here. I recommend vanilla bean latte or pecan latte. It's moderately sweet, so it's perfect for supplementing sugar in today's weather.
