Seoul is cafe heaven. No other city compares to the intricate interiors and execution of a concept. Maybe a little bit on the too-cutesy side, but I appreciate the creativity. It's actually pretty intimidating to walk into these cafes...you feel like you'll ruin it, like you're intruding. Each cafe I went to had its own rules, its own "language," per se. (These thoughts are a result of me being really observant and super introspective because I was alone). Nonetheless, this was one of those places where the menu was inside an old classic movie VHS box in the form of photographs. There was also a triangle, as in the instrument, which you had to play to order something. I was too shy to do it, so I just waited until the waitress was close enough for me to say "excuse me" really timidly. The cake was free too... so... it was awesome.

And another beautiful cafe was "bloom & goute" displayed here with one of my oldest and dearest friends.
