My cousin Angela and I finally realized our plan to tour Seoul last May 2008. Thinking that Koreans drink tea more than they drink coffee, I brought along my coffee press and a bag of ground beans. But the coffee press was left unused for the two weeks that we stayed there. To my surprise, there are cafes everywhere.
Our best find? The Tous Les Jours (French for “every day”) branch near Anguk-dong, right across the police station. We liked sitting near the window where we could see the people in the waiting shed and the bus stop. We also liked their glutinous rice bread. We wanted to buy their mugs for souvenir, but unlike other shops, they do not have mugs for sale.
