Reviewed November 18, 2019

I went here based on others reviews that they are happy animals, well cared for - couldn't be further from the truth. The racoons are so incredibly obese they cant barely climb a rope. There is NO space for them to escape humans. The staff...repeatedly give handfuls of food to you (why not just 2 or 3 pieces instead?) to coax the overfed animals to do little tricks. The albino one had blatant stereotypies (repetitive, invariant behaviour- MAJOR stress indicators). The pigs hooves constantly slip on hardwood floor. Just don't go, there are many cat and dog cafe's in the city that can fill your need for cute animals.More

If you like raccoons, pigs and a corgi, you need to go to Blind Alley. For W8,000 you can feed 3 raccoons (one of which is albino). The staff were really friendly and helped us take photos, pet the raccoons and made us feel comfortable....The pigs were really cute and although the corgi is kinda grumpy and doesn’t let you pet him, he’s still dead cute. Worth it if you love pet cafes.More

I had just gotten fat graft done a week ago on my forehead. The lady was circling around with the raccoon and from behind (I didn’t notice) she plopped it on my head. It’s paws pushed down hard on my forehead, I was horrified. She...was apologetic though and asked if I was okay and I said it’s fine but now I’m left with an indent on my forehead from where the raccoons paws were. 😒 Raccoons were cute though I guess, got to feed and play with them. Cafe is mainly for visitors from western countries. 从大楼来的不会觉得好玩More

Today, child number two chose this as her treat of choice. Has raccoons two pigs and a dog. They are very well cared for and very well fed, although live animals for entertainment is not my choice, I allow my children to make their choice....We had a mix of smoothies and cakes which were all lovely. Hand sanitizers on entrance to protect the animals, additional information about the animals to keep you interested. 6000 won for one ticket which gets you two hours with the animals, you won’t last that long but feel free to use two hours. They give you free WiFi and are very friendly, they show a program on the TV which explains how the cafe became a Racoon cafe. My daughter said “best day ever” so I think it was a winner today!More

We had a great time at Blind Alley. Cost about 7000 won to enter the raccoon room where you can interact with the 3 cute and chonky raccoons. The cafe staff help you feed them and they show you their cute simple tricks. You also...have the freedom to pet and play around with the 2 pigs Honey and Map, and the loafy corgi Cookie. The animals all look very comfortable and well taken care of. The food and drinks were also very good and affordable so it was all in all a fun and relaxing experience. Definitely recommend it!More

Dont go there. The animals have just a very small space and theyre just lying still and breathing fast. They seem scared and unhappy, this is just sad. We left after 1 minute inside the raccon room..

One of the most fun places we went to in Korea. Everyone had a great time. From the time we were playing with the pigs and the dog in the coffee shop, to when we were able to enter the room with the racoons... the...owner and staff were there and they wanted us to interact with the racoons. It was so fun petting and feeding them. A totally unexpected experience that left us all smiling and in greater spirits after.More

We visited this cafe on a rainy day which was nice as it was warm inside. Staff was very friendly and since we bought a few drinks and tickets to see the racoons we were given a slice of cake on the house. The owner...introduced us to the racoons and it was worth the money as the racoons were quite active and we got to interact with them. There was also a fluffy corgi and two adorable pigs roaming the cafe. Overall a great first-time animal cafe experience.More

As with other animal cafes, the menu is not extensive but the items they serve tastes decent for cafe food. The pigs and corgi are free to roam the floor and guests can interact with them in the dining area. The room that raccoons are...in is sufficiently large for them to exercise and move around. You could tell the staff really dotes on the animals from the way they interact with each other, and even though one of the raccoons was quite shy, she was not forced to interact with guests. Loved the atmosphere there and had an enjoyable time there. Definitely recommended for a visit.More

My adult daughter wanted to visit this place to see the raccoons. I was very glad that I went along as they were surprisingly friendly and we were able to pat them and hold them. It was a great way to spend a few hours...away from the shopping and eating in Seoul. The staff were very helpful and appeared to genuinely care for the animals which lessened the concerns that we had for the animals' welfare in such a small space. I actually had a good time.

We truly enjoyed our experience as the animals didn't seem to be stressed or desperate for food. The racoons are kept in a very clean separate room with lots of equipment and little toys and most importantly no cages. You have to pay 6000 won...to enter the racoon zone, buying drinks is not necessary but they give you a discount if you order anything. Racoon snacks can be bought at the cashier. You are not allowed to force racoons climbing on you, playing etc, which I think is great for the animals. The staff shows you how to ask racoons to do the tricks. Keep in mind that racoons are more active in the evening though. They also have a friendly fat Corgi and two pigs. You can feed pigs too. All the animals are vaccinated. Although it is a pet Cafe it's not smelly at all. The desserts and drinks are delicious, some simple dishes are available as well. Overall it is a very nice and cozy place with a heartwarming atmosphere.More

A delightful treat if you love animals! Theres a small fee (6000₩) and you have to buy a drink, the coffee is great. Staff are super friendly and speak english, they made sure everyone got some time with the raccoons! We were able to hold...and feed them, after reading through a simple rule card. Two very excitable pigs also roam the cafe and the Corgi. The cafe was clean and seemed to house the animals in a great condition. It wasnt too busy and the raccoons didnt have a constant stream of people in their personal room. A lovely sunday afternoon idea, highly recommend!More
