Cafe aA: An inspiring place

August 23, 2007

A cool breeze and sunny sky greeted me this morning while on my way to work. Thank goodness! I sometimes have to brace myself for the humidity waiting outside my door. I thought to myself that today would be a great day to visit my favourite cafe thus far: Cafe aA.
It is located in the very trendy neighborhood of Hongdae, home to Hongik University (great university!) and some of the hippest cafes I’ve ever seen. My love of cafes first started in Gothenburg, Sweden and was later intensified in Paris, France. However, Hongdae has a different vibe. It’s young, forever changing, has all kinds of music venues, etc. The cafes here have imagination, color, texture, and design. Cafe aA has all this and more. It’s certainly one of the largest cafes I’ve been in and that would be due to the fact that this cafe is located on the second floor of The Design Museum (that’s another post). What I like about this cafe is that there’s no tension, or pretentiousness. It’s just good coffee and amazing style. I feel welcomed when there and satiated when I leave.

Drink of choice:The Green Tea Latte is what I usually imbibe.
Food: The mozzarella, cherry tomato panini with potatoes on the side. Yum.
