Despite having only opened in April, Café Darak already has a cult following. From its oversize VW tent and curios of art, cameras and other vintage goods (including assorted non-matching furniture) to the funky presentation of beverages in margarita glasses, Café Darak has generated much buzz thanks to Instagram. Luckily for owner Naeun “Crystal” Yun, a 25-year-old UNLV student, her coffee and treats are just as well-thought-out as the décor. Favorites include affogato and Nutella lattes, but Yun offers her own touch, such as Yuzu and Jujube loose-leaf teas from her native Korea, as well as the Japanese-inspired sake rato, a coffee-based nonalcoholic beverage. But it’s Yun’s take on her best-seller, honey bread, that captures that homey feeling she’s trying to re-create—Darak means “loft” in Korean. 8665 W. Flamingo Rd., 702-370-4657.
