5 Sukhumvit Cafes to Fill Your Caffeine Fix
When hunting down the perfect cafe, Sukhumvit can be tricky. Phrom Pong is the king of cafes in Bangkok, but Sukhumvit has a few coffee shops that can give it a run for its money. In this article, we’ll be going over our favorite cafes in Sukhumvit. All of these are within walking distance or just a short motorbike taxi ride away from Slumber Party Bangkok. No need for a full adventure if you just want to bask in the relaxing cafe environment!
Chunky is best known for its burgers, as seen on their signs when walking by. Most wouldn’t expect a burger joint to have a proper coffee and bakery counter, but they fill those shoes perfectly. In fact, their dining experience can be a bit off-putting (in a good, surprising way) since it’s riddled with coffee shop quirks. Ever had a proper burger in a cafe? Chunky was my first experience like that, for sure. Though Chunky isn’t cheap, it’s definitely worth it. Wolf down a massive sliced sirloin burger with mushrooms and beef jus then grab an espresso while you let it all settle in your stomach. Best of all, it’s around the corner from Slumber Party Bangkok just past Narz.
Hours of Operation: Tuesday to Sunday, 11AM to 10PM
Locaton: 110/1 Sukhumvit Soi 23 – Sukhumvit MRT
Chu Chocolate Bar & Cafe
Chu is very conventiently located in the Exchange Tower, accessible straight from the Asok BTS station. Ever been to a chocolate bar before? This cafe has some truly next hot chocolate and mocha. Rich, velvety and creamy dark hot chocolate. Sold? Cool. It can get busy in the afternoons, so the morning is the best time for your caffeine fix. Make sure to grab a table by the window with a couch – it’s comfier and comes with a view!
Hours of Operation: Monday to Friday, 7:30AM to 9PM. Saturday to Sunday, 8AM to 9PM.
Location: 2/F, Exchange Tower, 388 Sukhumvit Rd. – BTS Asok
The perfect spot for dessert and coffee after a dinner date. Kuppa has the best dessert selection of any cafes in Sukhumvit. Order their cheesecake, it might be the best in Bangkok. Good sized portions too, it’s actually tough to finish on your own. They’ve also got a great lunch menu but we feel the vibe of this cafe to be more of a nighttime event. Between the lighting and mix of jazzy instrumentals, it’s a great way to cap off a romantic evening.
Hours of Operation: Tuesday to Sunday, 10AM to 11PM
Location: 39 Sukhumvit Soi 16
For anyone that’s been traveling Asia for a decent chunk of time, you might be craving French desserts at some point. Paris Mikki fills that void completely, with their tarte au chocolate and mille-feuille. If you’ve never blessed your taste buds with French sweets yet, this is the place to do it. We recommend giving them a call to reserve your sweets before visiting, since they can sell out often.
Hours of Operation: Tuesday to Friday, 10:30AM to 9PM. Saturday to Sunday, 9AM to 9PM.
Location: 1/F, Metha Wattana, 27 Sukhumvit Soi 19

It’s Happened to Be a Closet
This place can be seriously expensive. Definitely do not recommend it for backpackers on a budget. That is, if you’re going for a meal. Their cafe pricing won’t break the bank and you can enjoy the boho chic environment. While it started as a boho fashion brand, it’s evolved into an upscale cafe that captures the gypsy lifestyle. It’s Happened to Be a Closet is just a few steps away from Slumber Party Bangkok, between the hostel and Narz.
Hours of Operation: Sunday to Thursday, 8AM to 11PM. Friday to Saturday, 8AM to Midnight
Location: Sukhumvit Soi 23
