Yes, you’re right. I had captured a few photos to make this guide entry to Kona Bean Cafe which was managed by the omma(s) of the boys.(Leetuek, Sungmin, Kyuhyun)
PS: ELFs, this is the updated version(Apr’2012) of the guide done by me. It’s roughly about 10mins walk from the station and it’s easy to find the cafe if you follow the photos below. (^^)
KONA BEANS –
Address : Seoul, Sinsa-dong, Gangnam-gu 1st floor
Phone : 02 543 0070 Open from : 7am – 11pm
Directions: Take Exit 2, from Apgujeong station. – Make a U-turn on your left and follow the path straight all the way till you see a Hyundai Oil Station. (Take Note! It’s NO LONGER S-oil Station)
– Continue to walk straight until you see “Black Smith” cafe at a small alley junction(which is on your right). Turn right and walk into the alley.
Yes, you will see Jindo building and walk up about 100m and you’ll see Kona Bean Cafe. =D
You’ll be welcome by the handsome boys upon arrival with their huge photo portrait.
Hope you fans have some luck in bumping the ommas, or have a peep at the handsome cashier/barista boy(Sungjin) or maybe even the boys themselves~ ^^
My take. Basically, it’s a cafe platform where the parents of the boys would have a chance to communicate with fans(when they’re free). Just my luck, Kyuhyun’s omma was in the cafe and I managed to get a quick snap before she left. (=
Besides, there are many photo portraits hanging and big boards done by fans being placed in the cafe as well.
Guess who’s signature is this.. (PS: someone from SISTAR)

Well, took a short break with unnie(s) over there and I ordered a cup of hot vanilla latte to chill alittle as it was cold outside. =/
Well, almost all the cafe in korea has this device to alert you while waiting for your drinks/food to be ready. =D
Price range: It’s basically the same as other cafe. About 4kwon and above.
Ambience: It’s actually a little cozy inside. I do recommend for a cup of coffee with a friend or two. =D
Dropping Gifts for the boys: Well, I have no idea how long does it takes to reach the boys! But hey, you can try your luck and drop it there though. (= A pink package full of love for SungMin, together with presents for Omma(s) & Sungjin. ^^
PS: Please respect the privacy of the staffs and Omma(s) when they are working at the counter.
No Photography of the menu/Ommas/staff when they are working.
BUT..You are allow to take photos when IF the boys are working at the counter. (:
