Owner and barista Hye-jin Moon says she loves to see her customers relaxed and languid, rather than the hurried panic that many Seoul office workers embody. From the outside, Hello, Stranger looks like a tiny space that might well be hidden if the right car parked in front. But upon entering, you can see that the space is long and deep, and it feels as cozy as home. The cafe shelves in particular hold something special: on these shelves, independent artists and designers sell their wares on consignment. Every so often, you may come across an indie musician performing in the space as well.
