Seoul Gwanghwamun Officia Building Budget Cafe: ‘Mammoth Express’

Recently, budget coffee shops can be found everywhere. While in the past, it was the era of premium coffee shops, now Starbucks has taken over, and an endless competition among budget coffee shops has emerged.

The Gwanghwamun area is one of Seoul’s representative office-dense districts. It’s home to various government buildings including the Seoul Metropolitan Government, as well as embassies, headquarters of major and small businesses, making it a place where office workers can be found throughout.

Due to the high concentration of office workers, it’s natural to find a diverse range of cafes in the area. From well-known chains like Starbucks to small privately-owned cafes and budget franchise cafes, you can find them all here.

Mammoth Coffee is also one of these budget coffee shops that can be found all over the country, and even in the Gwanghwamun area where many office workers gather. You can find Mammoth Coffee in the underground arcade of the Officia Building.

The exact name of this Mammoth Coffee branch is “Mammoth Express,” where you can taste a cup of coffee for as low as 900 KRW, making it an affordable franchise coffee shop.

“Specializing in Takeout Service”

You can place your order using the kiosk in the store, and once the order is complete, you can take your coffee with you. While eating inside the store is possible, there are only limited seats available, so it’s more common for customers to opt for takeout.

Thanks to this, the store can be described as a takeout specialty shop. It’s a great place to visit when you want to grab a cup of coffee at an affordable price after finishing a meal.
