This is a lego-themed cafe that is quietly tucked into a residential area fairly close to the Cheongju bus terminal. The cafe is decorated with various lego displays and UK-themed knick knacks. When I ordered a drink, I was even given a complimentary lego-shaped chocolate! The owner is quite nice, and from my memory I think he spoke a bit of English too. I saw a few boxes of legos sitting in the corner untouched, so I’m not sure if you can actually play with the legos there or if they were purely for decorative purposes.
