Angel-in-Us: A Heavenly CupOne of Seoul’s most ubiquitous coffee chains is the unusually named Angel-in-Us (strangely, Korean’s pronounce it Angelina’s). The name apparently means that the store's coffee is god's gift delivered to earth by angels. Heavenly moniker aside, the chain serves up a luscious array of lattes, mochas, and cappuccinos to the caffeine-deprived masses.
No matter what location or what time you visit, this coffee hotspot is constantly packed—possibly due to the plush chairs, elegant lighting, and cute angel wing decor. The only drawback in my book: This chain does not serve nonfat milk.
