Deus Cafe (samcheong-dong)
Early one crisp autumn morning, I took a walk along Samcheong-dong. Now is the time to plan a date at the Bukchon Hanok Cafe in Samcheong-dong, when the weather is mild and the breeze is pleasant.
The flagship store of Deus Ex Machina.
I heard that a new bakery cafe had opened in Samcheong-dong, so I made my way there on a bright afternoon.
Under the direction of Italian architect Andrea Caputo, a modern hanok cafe called "Old House of New Customs" was built. Even though there are many unfamiliar words, it may be simply described as a hanok (old Korean traditional house) style store.
Let's go inside
The wooden gate made me think it was closed, yet someone eventually exited through the next automatic glass door.

Once the door had opened, I had to take a left turn into the corridor. Through the glass on the right, I could see the garden in the middle.
It looked like a European-style courtyard had been added to a traditional Korean house.
As I turned the corner, a spot appeared where I could place an order.
Without having tried the bakery, I could see why the bread at Deus Café was so well-known.
On one side, you might see all of the latest products from Deus Ex Machina.
As I made my way into the inner garden, the neighborhood dog, came over to say hello.
The brilliant blue sky overhead, the tiled roof that surrounded the area, and the gorgeous tree in the middle all contributed to the illusion that this garden was located on another planet.
They had Helinox products in the yard.
One of the specialties is Old House Coffee, and that's what I ordered. Only serve it cold, I was told not to stir it before drinking. The bottom layer, comprised of delicious milk cream and espresso, melted slowly on my tongue.

The OLD HOUSE of NEW CUSTOMS
After the puppy family left, I stayed in the inner garden the whole time.
Nonfiction brand soap was available for use.
Since I found this sunny setting appealing, I took a few last glances before leaving.
