Possibly the most Instagrammed café in the country, Onion epitomises young Koreans’ twin obsessions of coffee and design. Housed in a renovated former metal factory, Onion blends the concrete and brick of its former life with large windows, stark minimalist furniture and a large rooftop terrace. Thankfully, its top-notch coffees and baked goods mean it has as much substance as style.
