The famous chain of coffee shops called Starbucks opened its first store in Korea back in 1999 and has grown the number of local shops into 270 plus stores at present. Starbucks Korea is fifty percent owned by local company Shinsegae Department Store company and half owned by Starbucks Coffee Company. The chain of stores has been heavily patronized by Koreans so much so that the biggest Starbucks store is located in the Seoul Myundong shopping district. In Korea, you can find an establishment that is as tall as five floors and has two hundred seats for coffee lovers. That’s five levels of comfy cushioned seats and laid back ambiance where you can relax and enjoy your afternoon tea. Judging by this, the coffee craze in Korea is blooming. Most Starbucks shops look the same with the usual wood and glass counter where you can order your drinks and choose which of the cakes on display to have for tea time. However, the Starbucks in Insadong special as it has the Starbucks store name in the local language which is interesting to check out. As for the menu, the caramel macchiato with a dash of nutmeg is highly recommended for nippy weather. The different blended frappuccinos are great for warm weather. Have a plain croissant if you are keeping your calorie count low or go for the ham and cheese sandwich. Those who have a sweet tooth should not fail to taste the famous oreo cheesecake or the blueberry cheesecake at Starbucks. After ordering your food, you will surely find a perfect seat that you can come back to and call your favorite spot each time you come to Starbucks in Insadong.
