Internet cafe

A retail establishment that rents computers by the hour. Also called a "cybercafe," the first Internet cafes started in Europe in the mid-1990s and offered coffee and dessert like a regular coffee shop. Venues may also sell a variety of accessories and gadgets. In South Korea, one of the most high-tech countries in the world, there are thousands of cybercafes.
