L1 was about six months old when I first took her to a kids cafe.
My husband and I were meeting up with two other moms for the first time with their own kids. The ladies and I sat at a nearby table while the kids explored the cafe—all within sight. It was an enjoyable meet-up and the first of my many adventures at kids cafes in Seoul.
Korean kids cafes, despite the name, is a sort of cafe + indoor playground in one. Parents get to dine and sip their cups of coffee in peace while the kids connect with their friends through the language of play. Everyone then has fun, right?

Here are the kids cafes I’ve shared about:
A great resource to find kid-friendly activities in Seoul is Kids Fun In Seoul, every expat parent’s number one resource for fun stuff to do in Seoul! Or ask questions via “Kiddin Around Soko” on Facebook. There’s at least one new kids cafe being shared every few days, and it’s a good place to ask any question you might have about these places. I’ve gotten much information about new places thanks to this group as well.
Thanks for visiting! Are there any other resources you’d like to recommend? Let me know in the comments section below! 🙂
