Zapangi- The Cafe with a Pink Vending Machine Door, Seoul, South Korea

Visitors of this cafe share one goal— to take a picture with the pink door that is shaped like a vending machine.


Zapangi, which means vending machine in Korean (자판기), is located in Mangwon-dong—a neighborhood that has many up and coming restaurants and cafes. It’s also the place where the first Tokyo Bingsu opened.

From Mangwon Station exit 2, make a right u-turn and go straight (the subway exit is facing a street that is in the opposite direction from the cafe). The cafe will show up on your left after you walk through a local neighborhood for about 5 to 10 minutes.

There’s even a tripod with a smartphone holder provided in front of the door. In busy hours, you will have to wait in line for pictures. People had to quickly sneak out of the door so they wouldn’t get in the way of pictures.


The cafe is not just about the picturesque door. They have cute cakes served in tin cans and drinks served in bottles.

They also have a new menu that would look cute in instagram photos.


I got a coffee (americano), a jasmine milk tea, and a coffee cake (tiramisu). I would want to come back for the other fruit flavored tin cakes 🙂
