This cafe is one of the gems of Myeongdong. It is located in a repossessed house that was once used as a warehouse and later turned into a 2-story vintage shop and cafe called Keiko Shoten. The cafe was built over a period of two years by a couple specializing in vintage goods who previously operated an online shop by the same name. It is furnished with items they love. The wife is from Kanazawa, Japan and the cafe serves a brunch menu consisting of recipes learned from her father, a chef. The husband is a fan of the Rolling Stones and serves Mustang coffee, which combines Jack Daniels, a drink with close ties to the band, and cream. All the drinks and food are served on vintage glasses and tableware, a terrific pairing.
