Out of all the obsessions Koreans have, poop is by far the weirdest one! Nestled on the top floor of Insadong's Ssamziegil shopping area, Ddo-ong Cafe is a poop themed cafe. Seriously, everything is poop themed here. There are murals on the walls, toilet mugs, poop pillows, scones, etc.
Make sure to snag a seat before ordering as this place is in a tourist zone and gets quite busy. Make sure to also grab a poop shaped pillow to bring to your table.
Like other theme cafes, you really shouldn't except top quality for whatever you order, it's about the experience. I ordered flower ade and scones as a snack. Beverages range from 4,500~7,000￦ The scones were very dry and not that great. I mostly got it to take pictures anyways, so I wasn't disappointed.
This cafe has a cute atmosphere but feels more like a Starbucks, in the sense that everyone passes through there and there is never a quiet time to visit. Make sure to walk around and get a good look at all the funny poop paraphernalia.
Take the orange line 3 to Anguk Station and take exit 6. Go straight for about 1 min, then turn left into Insadong. Stay to your left and look for the Ssamziegil sign, which is about a 2 min walk. Ddo-ong Cafe is on the 4th floor.
