Last updated on January 20, 2020

If your favorite color is pink, you’ll fall head over heels in love with these cafes. They’re perfect for an ordinary weekend or special occasions like Valentine’s Day. Let’s see 10 Instagram-worthy pink cafes in Seoul!

1. Pink Pool Cafe (Myeongdong and Shichon) 

The pool itself isn’t actually pink, but the rest of the cafe is. Its two locations are conveniently located upstairs of Style Nanda in Hongdae and Pink Hotel in Myeongdong.

Pink Pool Cafe: Pink Hotel 5F, 37-8 Myeongdong 8-gil, Chungmuro 2(i)-ga, Jung-gu; 02-752-4546.

Style Nanda flagship store 4F, 23 Wausanro 29-dagil, Mapo-gu; 070-7663-6909. 11 a.m. – 11 p.m. daily.

2. Midnight in Seoul (Sinsa and Jamsil) 

Actor Yoon Kye Sang and his friends launched this hip cereal place back in 2016. Inspired by the Cereal Killer cafe in London, they wanted to create an “Instagram-worthy” cafe. In 2017, 2PM’s Jo Kwon joined the crew. If you’re lucky, you could be having a bowl of cereal made by the K-pop star.

Midnight in Seoul sells cereals from 8 a.m. to 12 p.m. In the evening, visit Midnight Bar (6 p.m. – 2 a.m.) right next to Midnight Cereal. Yoon Kye Sang likes to cook, so he’s in charge of the finger foods.

Midnight in Seoul, 63-13 Nonhyeon-dong, Gangnam; 02-545-6321. Another location in Hong Ground on third floor of Lotte World mall in Jamsil.

3. Cafe Mememi

Cafe Mememi is the local branch of the eponymous Italian cafe in Milan. Try their bunny latte (latte with a cookie in the shape of bunny ears), tiramisu latte (latte with mascarpone cheese and salted caramel) or winter seasonal pink strawberry drink.

Cafe Mememi: Multiple locations; 02-410-0080.

4. Magnstudio (Seoungdong-gu)

The hot pink chandelier sets the mood for this pink-themed cafe. They’re known for hot coffee poured over cotton candy, which they named cotton candy coffee. Pictured above is Pink Vienna, a drip coffee with pink cream. When you visit, don’t forget to show off your killer outfit against the pink stairs backdrop on Instagram.

Magnstudio: 36 Geumhosan-gil, Seoungdong-gu, Seoul; 02-796-3332.

5. Zapangi (Mangwon)

Pull open the pink vending machine shaped door to Zapangi, one of the most Instagrammed patisseries in Seoul. They sell the best visually satisfying and most mouthwatering desserts like mermaid latte and unicorn donut.

Zapangi (Facebook), 400-2 Mangwon-dong, Mapo-gu, Seoul; 02-325-8185

6. Comm Comm Bakery Cafe (Yongsan)
