Some people get confused by the name 'Americano'. It didn't come from America nor is it a popular drink there. For those who are new to the name; it's simply a black coffee. Highly popularised in South Korea in recent years, it is usually the cheapest and fastest item on a café menu. Café culture is also a huge aspect of South Korea, multiple on every street and all selling crazy drinks and cakes that just beg to be tried. Watch out, though, the bill piles up!

This little café is a short walk from the Gyeongbokgung Palace (Biggest Palace in Seoul (See G post)) so its a great place to cool down after exploring! But make sure to give some time to find a free seat because this place is very popular...
