Imagine a life without coffee… Yes, it’s impossible. I can’t imagine starting my day with anything other than coffee. Coffee is like my life partner, and here in Korea there are so many fun cafes that just make your morning cup of joe so much better. These are the top 5 cafes you should visit in Seoul!
I will not disclose how many times I have visited these, because it may be a bit embarrassing. However, I assure you that you will want to go back to all of them if you ever give them a try!
Phone Case Café
Ever thought you could buy a cup of coffee and also design your own phone case? It is absolutely amazing. I have gone with a few friends and we drew names so we had to personalize the phone case for the person we got. It was so much fun and the yummy cafe treats are completely worth the price.

Dogs. That’s all you need me to say. All sizes, breeds, and ages, this café is very unique.
I will tell you something… there are lots of dog cafés here in Seoul, but this one is my favorite. You can actually interact with the puppies and senior dogs. And, at the same time, you get an environment filled with giggles, fluff, and coffee. It is literally what I picture in my mind if happiness was a place.

You can become the dancing queen in this fairytale-themed café -pun totally intended. I lived the dream while I was there. Also, the prices are so good I wish I could stay forever.
The coffee is pretty nice and the ambiance of the place resembles a fairytale. With the fairy lights and the hanging plants, the pink everywhere just makes you feel like you are the main character. I never want to live a life in which I wasn’t introduced to this gem.

Finally, the last cafe on our list of cafes you should visit in Seoul is a sheep cafe. I will finish this article with a coffee place you won’t ever want to leave.
Thanks Nature has sheep, waffles, and dessert. You can actually touch the sheep while sipping on your cup of coffee.
They are so friendly I wish I had enough space in my apartment so that I could steal them all. I just wanna hug them forever and play with them every single day. I can’t have enough of the sheep -or the coffee!
