  • Cat Cafe/Dog cafe

Maybe it is one of the most well-known type of themed cafe. It is a cafe where you can sip your drink while petting cats or dogs, depending on the type of cafe you are (a cafe with cats AND dogs does not exist… Yet?). Usually, the cafe is clean and smells good. You have to follow some basic rules about what you can do or not with the animals, to be sure that they are well treated, and you can buy some snacks for them. If you want to be surrounded by cute dogs or cats, this is the best mean! Drinks are a bit more expensive than in a traditional cafe but it worth it, to spend some times with dogs or cats.

  • Poop Cafe (또옹카페)

I think, this is one of the funniest cafes you could come across in Korea. The poop cafe, located in Insadong, is a place where you can enjoy your drink in a shaped-toilet cup or shaped-poop cake. It is not disgusting or anything, it is even cute! In the cafe, you will find poop soft toy, poop drawn on the wall… A poop world!
