The Hackney is a small cafe that has a couple of branches around Yongsan district, one at Haebangchon and one at Hangangjin. Rather than the coffee, they’re famous for their signature cake menus (see menu list below). Their mirror seat in front of the cafe is also super Instagram-worthy and one of the hot spots for every visitor to take pictures there.

How to get there
To get to Haebangchon, take the subway line 7 to Noksapyeong Station then get off at exit 2. From exit 2, walk straight ahead until you are at the intersection. From the intersection look for a sign that says HBC Art village or takes the alley on the left next to the military center.
