Visiting Pet cafes While Teaching in Korea!

Posted on Mon, May 07, 2012 @ 11:12 AM


I went to Seoul this past weekend with one thing on my mind: pet cafes. Wow, that sentence sounds a bit crazy so maybe some explaining is in order. Pet cafes are not restaurants that specialize in serving various types of pets. (Sorry for the gruesome picture.) On the contrary, these are cafes that serve normal café fare, i.e. coffee, tea, and expresso drinks, while surrounded by friendly cats or dogs. In several locations throughout Seoul, one can find dog cafés, cat cafes, and fish cafés. (or so I had been told). I decided to spend an afternoon investigating whether these pet cafes were real and to see if I enjoyed drinking a cup of coffee while a pack of dogs ran around my feet.

Urban Soul Cafe & Gallery

        Do you enjoy a good cup of coffee and art? Urban Soul Café and Gallery is the place to visit. While teaching English in Korea, a friend of mine that I met here took me to this spot. Since then, I have been regularly visiting the café for the past 3 months now. 

       My favorite coffee drink, a latte, is always perfectly made every time I visit. The espresso bean is roasted just the right amount and brewed into a steamed cup of milk with a smooth milky froth art on top. It’s great that my latte always tastes great. It’s also great that the art always changes.
