Dalmatian: Drink Fine Wine & Eat Warm Shakshuka At This European-style Cafe With Dalmatian Mascots

Dalmatian Cafe in Seoul


At Dalmatian Cafe in Seoul, you can dine outdoors next to a water fountain filled with flower petals, or indoors where various giant paintings of dalmatians are displayed. Better yet, the cafe welcomes all pets and even has pet-friendly snacks for sale. 


Cafe that looks like its own town

A stone archway leads into a cobbled courtyard that wouldn’t look out of place in Europe or a fairytale. It houses the cafe’s outdoor seating area, and with the power of imagination, you could pretend you’re dining in the courtyard of a rich aristocrat’s mansion.

The indoor area of the cafe is just as unique – raw concrete walls and exposed wiring are juxtaposed against colourful Greek tiles, an assortment of mismatched furniture, and antique reading lamps.

Vibrant murals of dapper Dalmatians in the coolest drips oversee the premises – one particular dog bears an expression of judgement uncannily reminiscent of Miranda Priestly.

The cafe is littered with all sorts of knick knacks that add on to the kooky charm of the architecture. 

In the heart of the outdoor seating area, a water fountain filled with flower buds and petals runs continuously as you dine al fresco.
