You know how much we love the Korean aesthetic of effortless adorability—be it fashion, beauty or interiors, it’s simple and charming and gets the job done in a way that makes you go, “That’s basic yet functional and pretty… why haven’t I tried that before?”
Neither of us have ever been to Seoul (at least physically)—but in the meantime, we’ve been on the lookout for little pockets of Korea wherever we are.
According to the owners, it’s called Sunday 2PM because it’s that time of the week when things are most relaxed and chill for most people. They gave the café this name to evoke that cozy feeling of being at home.
We just had to film the cutest stuff in Sunday 2PM for another video diary!
So adorable, right?
The way it’s designed also gave us some more ideas for decorating our own spaces.
Apart from coffee and sandwiches, they’ve got a mini library of Korean and English books for anyone’s reading pleasure.
And if you want to listen to or download Korean songs, there’s this mini grocery cart.
There are these “study corners” by the walls near the shelves. Check out the wall papers: customer doodles. Who knew cluttered post-its could look so nice?

It’s visiting places like Sunday 2PM that remind us how things don’t need to be over-complicated, over-thought or over-designed in order to work out. No matter how stressed or tired we are, we need only look at photos and videos of our happy places.
