This is my favorite coffee shop near my house that opened up almost about two years ago. It’s an independent coffee shop that has lots of drinks and delicious desserts. Originally the menu was much more expansive, but it has simplified a bit overtime. It is a nice cozy space with lots of outlets for customers to work or charge their phones while chatting over delicious coffee.
One thing I originally liked was how the coffee shop opened at 7 A.M. this has now been pushed back to 8 A.M., which for an early bird like me is fine, but that 7 A.M. time was awesome. The coffee shop also occasionally boasts a handicraft market once or twice a month from 5 to 10 p.m. You can find all sorts of candles, soaps, jewelry, and other handicrafts for sale in half of the shop while the other half you can sit and chat with friends. I’ve bought some really nice smelling candles here!
Blankis also puts on mini concerts on Thursdays a few times a month if you want to come out and enjoy live music. The manager, 미래 (Future), is very friendly and has a wonderful smile! You can follow the cafe on Instagram as well, where they post new desserts or drinks that they are rolling out!
You can find Blankis by going out exit 11 at Bupyeong station, walk a little past the pharmacy and if you follow the loud music, you’ll see that Blankis is on your right. They are open Sunday to Thursday 8 to 11 p.m. and Friday and Saturday 8 – Midnight. Definitely stop by with your friends order a delicious coffee and try some of the desserts! You won’t be disappointed!
