Editor’s Picks: 10 Aesthetic Korean Cafés In Manila

Insta-worthy places with authentic Korean pastries and really good coffee!

In your favorite K-dramas, the local coffee shop is where some of the best scenes happen. This is where characters fall in love, flirt, confess deep dark secrets, break up, fall back in love again. IRL, Korean-inspired cafés make really great hangout places, too, even if all you want to do is read a book, study, chat with friends or get some work done. 

Why? First, because they’re so aesthetic in unique ways. You just know a Korean café is going to provide IG and TikTok-worthy background. Second, the food and drinks, many of which you’ve seen and fallen in love with while watching your favorite K-drama series. And third, because stepping inside a Korean cafe can transport you into your own little piece of Kculture. You know what we mean. 

Here are our ten favorite Korean cafés in Metro Manila, ranging from tiny personal cafés to specialty coffee chains. They’re the perfect places for your IG moments, unboxing videos, and kilig reenactments of your favorite Kpop idols caffeine-inspired scenes. 

P.S. we arranged them in alphabetic order.
