Lemon Grass Cupcake and Coffee Cafe will tantalize your taste buds--after you've finished oohing and ahhing over the cupcake display and other interior decor. Stumbled upon by accident one night downtown, this new gem in downtown Gwangju near the Bubble Bar is a good place to stop for a cup of coffee, milk, or fruit juice smoothie, and of course, a cupcake. The cupcakes range in price from 3,500 to 4,000 won apiece, but one is all you'll need. They are rich and moist, with a nice range of flavors for different palates. Example: mint chocolate cupcake, tiramisu, lemon, red velvet, and chocolate, to name a few. There are other flavors, and they change the display to reflect the popular ones of the day. You can also purchase a gift cupcake pack for a friend or loved one, and it will come wrapped up as pretty as can be.

To get to Lemon Grass from the YMCA bus stop, head up to your right, following the curve of the road and keeping the fountain on your left. Keep walking past the Crown Bakery and Biz Baz Coffee Shop. Take the next crosswalk after Biz Baz to go to the other side of the street. Lemon Grass will be on your left, almost on the corner.
