카페데코믹스 ( Cafe de Comics )

One of my favorite cafe finds in Sinchon. Cozy atmosphere, yummy coffee, sleepy kitties, and comic books as far as the eye can see. Chips, soda, ramen, and various other snacks can be purchased as well for something to munch on while you read.

Like a PC Bang, customers pay by the hour. 2 hours + either ramen or your beverage of choice comes to just 6,500원. No better way to spend a dreary, rainy day than cuddled up with a good (comic) book.
