The BEST Cafes in Seoul have a Few Things in Common

One of my favorite pass times is to explore cafes in search of the perfect area to relax and enjoy a good brew. There is something magical about getting out of my house or office to work on my projects. I never seem to get any quality work completed in the confines of those familiar walls, so join along in my adventure as I show you some of my favorite spots around Seoul.

Alegria at Pangyo but their Common Grounds location is also fantastic

Some things I look for that make a great coffee shop:

1. EXCELLENT coffee–I like fresh, locally roasted beans that treat their skill as the craft it is. The more gadgets and measurements I see behind the bar, the happier I am.

2. Atmosphere–Including patio space, chill ambiance, and music. Loud music is my pet-peeve.

3. Outlets (or work spaces)–I need to be able to plug in and charge devices so if you don’t have easy access outlets, you don’t make the cut.

Another spot in Apgujeong I love is The Pancake Epidemic since they serve the famous Stumptown Roasters. Alegria is my go-to at Common Grounds or around Pangyo.

    Looks like a great place! I love the chandelier and all of the different chairs! In your opinion, how do the prices here compare to the "mediocre" coffee shops?
