Came here on a tour and perhaps it was over-hyped by the guide. Very little here that tourists might want to see or buy. Caters mostly to locals and most shops seemed low-end. Can't really recommend unless you are at a loose end.

A local traditional market selling local street food like tteokbokki, eomuk and kimbap that is along the BIFF Square and Jagalchi market. Go there to have some street food while shopping around BIFF Square.

As for the cafe, lots of cafes to choose from nearby. There are so many shops that I didn't notice specificity of such goods per stall.
