Why do we have so many franchises here in the US? I miss the unique, random shops that were all over Seoul. Even if there was a franchise there, they were still a lot of smaller ones that didn’t make it seem like you could find one around every corner. I’m more likely to try a new place when I’m out and about. What if they have something really awesome? Especially of the sugary variety. 😉
Do you remember my post about hair removal in Shincheon? Well, right outside of the station you can find this awesome little cake and tart cafe called Jacklyn D.Cafe. It’s small inside, but there are so many cakes and pies to choose from. And they are kind of like back home! Sometimes I just want something huge, sweet and rich. 😀
I got some grapefruit ade to balance out the sweet. I went with the carrot cake because I hadn’t had that in ages and it isn’t a flavor you see often here so I had to take advantage! It was perfect in every way. A little pricy, but perfect. I loved the little graham cracker bunny on top, so cute! 🙂
If you are killing time in the Shincheon area, it is definitely worth the try! Shincheon doesn’t get a whole lot of love, but the area right around the station is actually filled with delicious restaurants and cafes. It’s a great place to hang out! The cafe’s location is ideal for people watching since it’s right in front of the subway exit if you are into that!
How to get there:
Take the subway to Shincheon Station. Go out of exit 3 and it will be right on your right.
