Cafe Droptop Korea

My oppa and I were looking for a nice coffee shop to meet my cousin and aunt in the Myeongdong (명동) area and we found Cafe Drop Top (드롭탑) by chance while walking around Myeongdong. This is our first time visiting Cafe Drop Top, I am really excited to be here!

Parking in the Myeongdong area really sucks, so if you're taking it to go just drop someone off to pick up the drinks and wait in your car. They take cash and card so you don't have to worry about having enough cash in your wallet.

We came here when it was raining, so this is the perfect coffee shop to duck into when its raining. I fell in love with this cafe because it's cool, cosy, clean, bright, open space with plenty of upstairs and outdoor seating.

They offer free WIFI after you enter the password posted by the register. This was a nice place to just come hang out with friends, or your lover and I think will be a great place to chat or relax with a cup of coffee or tea.
They also have lights and tree surrounding the many tables and the ambience is simple. I would say that Drop Top is the best cafe in Myeongdong.

I like the interior design, and they have a separate smoking room for their smoking customers. Their interior decor is modern, vibrant yet classy and alluring. They really know how to work it.

They offer a wide selection of coffee-based beverages, teas, and quite a menu of cakes, breads, sandwiches, and cookies.
The staff working at the front were friendly and kind, even though she was kind of busy, I didn't feel rushed at all.
So many menu items looked good!

On some of the tables in the cafe is a Samsung tablet in the table, you can play games or surf the internet as you wait for your orders. The seating area is relatively large, they have outlets everywhere so it's a great place to work.

We ordered a hot Americano, Lemon Tea and Maple Honey Bread (메이플 허니브레드). Typical of many Korean cafes they give you that gadget which will vibrate when your order is ready for pick up.

My oppa had an Americano (아메리카노), the taste was good, fresh, smooth without any unnecessary bitterness, and flavorful which left no need for sugar. 

For my drink I got a lemon tea (레몬 티), and it tasted fine just like your average tea.

This maple honey bread is slightly sweet, from both maple sugar and honey. It’s ridiculously soft and moist. I would definitely recommended this to anyone looking for sweet pastries. The pastries are a bit pricey and you may need to wait in a bit of a line but it's totally worth it.

Pictures at the cafe before we leave!
