101.-105. Coffeenie, Caffe Klavier, Coffee Village, Cafe Olive, Cafe Anz

Here are a few coffee shops easily accessible from the Guseo (130) subway station in Geumjeong-dong, Busan. I will comment on the places I have visited.

They were, however, great for getting out of the rain one afternoon.20160927_082149_resizedCoffee Village. It’s very popular with the local high school, as it’s connected to it by the same building.20160927_082229_resized Cafe Olive. This was open when I first started at my current job. Then it was closed for months, I assumed forever. Then it was renovated and re-opened! Then, it closed two weeks later. Now, it’s open again. Average coffee, another place popular with the high school kids.20160927_082258_resizedThis is Cafe Anz. And this is Cafe Franz. And, we’re here to pump (clap!) you up! Good folks, pretty decent coffee. It’s an old building so watch your head if you’re trying to head to the bathroom in the back.
