Barva Coffee

Nestled behind Holly's coffee off the 1 in Suwon is Barva Coffee.
We have visited this place a few times as its across the street from the Apple Computer service center.
I brought in Almond milk the second time we visited and they were super accommodating.
They had parts of the menu in English. This place is huge and would fit a huge party of people. The decor is comfortable but sheek.

The music is not so loud that its obnoxious, but at an appropriate level to be able to talk with it.
I ordered a cappuccino and it was delicious.

4 out of 5 coffee beans!

Next time I go, I will drop a pin for directions.

Coffee Gaon

We found a little shop on the back side of AK Plaza.  Its located on the same side of the street as Paris Bagette just one street away.

We stepped in and the place was decorated in wood. Its was a cute place, that had lots of Korean/English words that entertained our brains.

We ordered a Cappuccino and a Tea. Both were well executed and delivered great happiness to our tastebuds.  We haven't been back, but thats because there are so many shops to visit and so little time!
If you was a cute little place, this might fit your fancy!
They did offer a variety of sides to choose from and I believe they roasted their own beans. OR at least for Dutch coffee!

This is the view of AK Plaza from the back. 

Two kinds of coffee

I ventured to Lotte Mart in Pyeongtaek and took a back way home and found a gem of a place. I stopped here to do some of my schooling online.

I was excited as I walked in as it had an industrial feel with plank floors with steel on part of them as well. It was a very modern environment and had lots of fun things to look at on the wall. The staff was very pleasant and spoke english as well. The menu was extensive as well as the menu of food.
I was happily surprised when they had decaf dutch coffee. There brought me orange slices as a bonus.
They were so friendly as I just sat there doing homework.

It was definitely a fun place to visit nestled in an up and coming area of yuppyville.

3.5 coffee beans out of 5.

Enjoy visiting this place!

This was the bathroom.

The Page

A new Cafe that we found is a gem of a place! Its on the other side of the parking lot we normal park at.  The outside resembles something from a New England state. It reminds me of an upscale Boston hangout.  Theres books all around, and brick with wooden floors which makes for a cozy atmosphere.  Theres England items, and architecture from all over the world.

The Menu is not in english but if you know what you want in English they are easily accommodating.
I ordered a Cappuccino, (see photo below).

This is a fun atmosphere that I might frequent to get some design work and school work done as there is free wifi, and the music is soothing and not too loud.

Happy Coffee house hopping!

See map below for directions.

This is a fun space divider.

See bathroom photos below! It was super nice and super clean. Always impresses me with the cleanliness of the bathroom.

You are here Cafe- Seoul

There is a blog Here that the writers and one other blogger opened up a cafe for those that follow the blog. When we were first coming to South Korea, we looked at the blog to get info. Some posts are too crass for me, but regardless there is some good info in the archives I have found.

A friend and I ventured to find this place on the Saturday before Christmas.  On there blog, there is AMAZING video directions to get here. Check it out here!

Beside being so so so cold, and iced roads we ventured out.
See below photos for descriptions
When we got there, there was a Flea market inside and in the yard of the cafe. There were many different types of things, some jelly spreads and some scarves. This was a fun Christmas surprise.
Here's the front of the Cafe. 

Since there was a flea market things were a bit crowed, but this is the area that you 

See previous photo, this is the other side of the room. Items for purchase on the wall. 

Some of the signs with products for sale. Bonus is its in English. 

I had an Almond Milk Cappuccino with 2  raw power bites. 

Upstairs in the cafe. It was bright and cheery. Very welcoming and calming.

Here's their logo.

Upstairs as you come up the stairs you turn right and there is  a cute Tea room. 
Its not in black and white, I just shot it in Black and White.

We sat in the far corner to get a better view of the place! 

There is a lovely porch on the second floor.

I would rate this place 5 out of 5 coffee beans. The 5 would be more for the atmosphere, as you sat there, it became better and better. Its hard to describe.  I would definitely visit again!
