I thought I would share this cute little coffee and churro place I came across in Sinsa, in fact it’s right across the street from Buccella Sandwich. There are coffee shops everywhere you look in Garosugil but this one has some really cool desserts on offer and I loved the decor. Also when when the sun is shining, their patio is an awesome place to hangout and look cool (which I always do). There was also no queue when we visited unlike the Street Churros in Kyungnidan which had a one a mile long.
At this point in the day I had already had a coffee and some lunch, but just about had enough room for a Churro Sundae (4,500). The churro was pretty good, but not rolled in sugar, although if you buy them separately they do. It was fried freshly in front of us and they also had various different flavours of fillings you could have.
Nice vanilla ice-cream and thick chocolate fudge sauce it really hit the spot. The Fat Boyfriend and myself polished it off quite nicely.
As well as the churros, dessert goodies and drinks, they have a random assortment of other things on sale like Guinness flavoured crisps. I was insanely excited about this until I found out they were 15,000 won and couldn’t bring myself to pay that much for them. They also had other random English candies like Walkers Toffee for ridiculously expensive prices but I guess that’s Gangnam style! This would make a great place for a casual date, it’s cool with nice desserts and wont cost you a fortune if it doesn’t work out. I guess that’s why Korea is overrun with coffee shops, not that I am complaining. I do love me a coffee shop.
