Lowkey (Seongsu store)
Lowkey is an incredibly well-known roastery cafe.
It is not far from Seongsu Station and has a park close by, making it a nice place to relax and unwind. PEACHES is also close by, making it a wonderful starting point for a leisurely day of sightseeing in Seongsu-dong.
This well-known coffeehouse with a relaxing vibe that may easily fool you into thinking you're in Tokyo rather than Seongsu-dong. There are plenty of seats available, both inside and out, as well as in the basement, so it's best to get one before exploring the rest of the establishment.
In addition to coffee beans, they also sell cookies and a wide selection of goods.
Before placing an order for filter coffee, you can take a whiff of the ground coffee. Find the coffee that suits your tastes by inquiring about its origins and characteristics.
I was recently impressed by Ugandan coffee and decided to try it.
Get a seat first, then place your order; I was asked if I wanted to drink outside or inside before I placed my order.
The wait staff will bring your coffee straight to your table if you place the number on the table you were given when you placed the order.
I took a brief look inside while waiting for my coffee and saw the unusually shaped huge table and sofa.
No doors were left on purpose and features a moderate amount of lighting.
Wood-toned decor and moderately paced music.
The varied sounds of the people inside, the sound of the grinder and the espresso machine combined, making it a precious experience where I could hear numerous sounds in my ears rather than feeling like it was noisy.

The coffee beans probably were roasted to a medium or higher level, as the color is not particularly light. Still, the coffee was excellent, with a flowery and fruity flavor profile and a satisfyingly sweet finish that kept you from putting the cup down.
It was easy for me to see why the Lowkey was so well-liked. At present, it appears that the ability to select coffee beans skillfully has evolved into an essential attribute of a good cafe.
Cafe Lowkey has all the makings of a well-known cafe right down to the smallest detail.
It was a delightful experience to see so many people in this cafe, even though there are several excellent cafes in the surrounding Seongsu-dong area.
