Chu Chocolate Bar & Café is a favourite with Bangkokians when it comes to casual brunches and cakes. Just a few minutes from the Asoke junction on Sukhumvit this popular cafe focuses on using quality ingredients to create delicious treats, including a potential winner for the best hot chocolate in the world. Open weekdays from 07:30 and weekends from 09:00 Chu’s laid-back coffee shop atmosphere is ideal for those looking for great breakfasts, sandwiches and enough dessert options to satisfy the sweetest tooth around.

Situated in Exchange Tower opposite Terminal 21 and easily accessible via the Skytrain walkway, Chu makes a cheery mark on an otherwise pretty colourless office block. Take a look at their open kitchen; serious baking involving large melted bowls of French dark chocolate is going on and the glass display cabinet is full of brownies, muffins, truffles and cakes – a sophisticated chocolate factory.

The comfortable sofas and a television in the corner showing everything from cooking shows to classic movies means you lose track of time; it’s very easy to watch the entire of Casablanca on mute whilst you lounge around or flick through the great selection of English reading material on offer (magazines, The Nation, Bangkok Post and others). Free Wi-Fi is also available if you need to stay connected.
