Hello Kitty Cafe

Tel: +82 2 334 6570

In this Hello Kitty Cafe, everywhere you look, there would be a Kitty staring right in your face – the food you eat, the latte you drink, the sofa seat you sit on, the wallpapers you gaze at, the tables where your mobile phone rests and even the toilets, are not spared from Hello Kitty.
The food and drinks are very sweet and will certainly curb your cravings for desserts.
Lily Cat Cafe

Jung-gu, Seoul, South Korea

Lily Cat Café is where you will be greeted by approximately 30 friendly cats. The eating area and the cats’ playroom are in two separate entities, separated by a glass door.
The entrance fee and the price of food are really cheap so do not miss out on this wonderful chance! You should try the red bean shaved ice dessert and refreshing kiwi juice.

a;t fox (에이티 폭스)

Darjeeling tea 6,500 won, Jasoyup blueberry fizz 7,500 won
Located just off the main street of the Hongdae area, ‘a;t fox’ is probably one of a few cafes where you can enjoy a great afternoon tea, dessert, and trendy cosmetics all in the same place. The ‘a;t’ in a;t fox stands for afternoon tea, and the café gives you the feeling of being invited over to a posh afternoon tea party. Tea is served in antique teapots on ornate dessert trays.
What makes this café stand out is its beautiful powder room fully equipped to allow women to put on make-up and test the cosmetics displayed on the table. The cosmetics are made by the same company as the café, and made with ingredients used to make tea such as jasoyup (perilla frutescens) and tangerine peels, which are known to help with skin problems. Visitors are welcomed to test the shop’s popular cosmetics such as black tea mist, moisturizing cream in a cupcake-like container, and jasoyup BB cream. The friendly and knowledgeable staff will assist you while giving you some useful make-up tips.
