Cafe Minerva is the oldest cafe in Sinchon. It has been welcoming guests since 1975. Under the theme of Minerva, meaning a place that is a little rustic but overflowing with love and romance this cafe is a living monument. It all started nearly 5 decades ago with a group of Yonsei graduate students who love coffee and decided to open their own shop. Minerva became the most popular hangout spot for college students at the time. It was so popular that customers lined up outside. Although the owner of the cafe has changed several times over the years, the cafe has never taken a break. It is the one unchanging fixture amid Sinchon’s ever-evolving neighborhood.
