This café is a hidden gem of Times Square Mall. It is located in the back of the mall in a small brick building which is in the great contrast to the hyper modern glass structure of the mall. With a stream running in the back, Coffee Libre could well be a small refuge of old times and nature, as its brick building used to be Kyungbang Limited spinning and weaving company in 1935 and is the only remaining factory from the area during Korea’s tumultuous history. It has since been registered as the 135th cultural heritage of Korea. Now a café, Itaewon’s well-known Maybell bakery and Coffee Libre’s collaborative efforts have made this historic building even more special. When you walk into the café, you are greeted with an ambiance not easily found in Korea. There is a huge table in the middle holding a great variety of bread made in house with the café on one side of the room. It’s a nice open space with a cozy yet chic interior.
