If you know me, you know I have a thing for Instagrammable cafes. That's why I absolutely loved Seoul which is known for their many cafes with cute and crazy concepts.

So when a cute cafe with a swing, neon writing on the wall and blue pancakes appeared on my explore page, I had to check it out.
I loved the minimalistic interior and clean design of the place. One thing to keep in mind is there are only two tables in the cafe.
Personally, I like it that the space isn't overcrowded with tables as it gives you space to brunch comfortably.
The most Instagrammable spot in the cafe is without a doubt cute swing with a neon writing but first coffee.
Their menu consists of coffee, tea, sweet and savoury crepes (pancakes), and milkshakes.
As I love blue and green coloured desserts, I obviously had to have blue pancakes.
Tip: You will not find coloured pancakes on the menu but you will have to ask for them. Kind of like a secret menu. :D You can get your pancakes in any colour of the rainbow 🌈 if you ask nicely. ;)
This cafe is dog friendly! so you might even spot a pup or two whilst you are there. If you have a dog yourself, this place is perfect for you as there is a dog groomer just across the street from the Shot It cafe!
And if you need some grooming yourself, there is a Shot It Beauty Bar in the basement of the cafe. I have seen this trend of cafe + something (usually a shop) a lot in Korea. It seems to now be spreading overseas as well. I think it's a great idea - get your treatment and a coffee at the same place, what more do you want.
And their treatment rooms are so cute!
They also offer makeup services and their full beauty menu can be seen on their website.
Big shout out to Irina and Kelly who were very nice and served me with delicious pancakes, showed me around the place and even taken a photo of me on a swing (which you can see on my Instagram).
How to get there
The cafe is located in a quiet street just a short walk away from Holborn underground station and British Museum, making it for a perfect spot to rest your feet after sightseeing. It is also a perfect spot for a catch up with a friend. Even though it is centrally located, the area is quiet and gives you an opportunity to escape the busy streets of London.
