Dennis is a very cool factory style cafe tucked away near Bujeon station right near Song Sang-hyeon Square. There are a few other cafes popping up around there now so you can make a coffee tour of it if you so desire.
Despite the old man name, this place is very modern and the owner incorporates his experiences in Spain into his menu. I recommend the Tallat, which is similar to a piccolo or cortado (i.e. a short latte). And the Manzanilla tea; Spanish for chamomile, with a touch of honey, that is a brilliant palate cleanser.
Dennis has been open for over two years and the owner has been working on his baking. His chocolate croissants are decadent, but a lovely match for a strong coffee. And the apple crumble (pictured) is also lovely and crumbly. The beans used are roasted by Werk, in Jeonpo, and the smooth roast that is used is a perfect match for some sweets.
Dennis seems out of the way but it’s a short walk from Bujeon station and about 15 minutes from the Jeonpo cafe street. It’s definitely worth going. The decor is perfectly factory style, the sound system pumps smooth beats, and the owner can speak English.
He would love to chat about his time learning the trade in Spain. It’s a great place to go have a cheat day whenever you can.
