Time Out says

Even before trying out its menu, you'll wonder how such a location is even possible in reality — if you've managed to find this coffee shop, that is. At this two-story house with large glass windows, located on an alley that appears right before the Sajik Tunnel, however, a 30-minute wait is almost like a norm. Part of it is the seats by the window on the second floor, offering a quaint view looking down old houses situated above the tunnel, where everyone visiting the café wishes to spend time. It's only been a year since owner Yu Yeong-hun who used to operate a photography rental studio and Mun Hye-ran who has learned to become a professional barista opened this place. Yet, its seats have been filled by numerous Instagrammers and bloggers capturing and sharing the scenes at the café. The main menu here is comprised of lattes and cappuccinos. The most popular drinks are the cream cappuccino and Goblin, which has layers of espresso, green tea and whip cream. It was a tad bit too sweet, but the cream cappuccino was delicate and refreshing at the end. Would I return to Sajik Coffee? Judging from its famous view reflecting all of the season's charms, I know will be here as soon as spring arrives.
