How did anyone fit a coffee shop in such a small alley? Hiding amongst the shabby buildings in Euljiro, this coffee shop is decorated like a dabang (Korean coffee house) from the Japanese colonial period. One small step through the door is effectively one giant leap back 90 years or so. The wooden floor creaks with every step, the counter is inlaid with mother-ofpearl and there’s even a hand coffee roaster. Make sure you try out their signature menu item—strong hand-drip filter coffee brewed by the barista with all the meticulousness of a pharmacist decocting herbal medicine.
