The Chocolate Tales

Cute cake café near Silom

Walking into the Chocolate Tales is like entering someone’s living room. In fact if it wasn’t for the counter you might not even know that it is anything out of the ordinary; there is only a small sign outside. A baking team works on a batch of orders on one of the tables, surrounded by packets of chocolate curls and jelly sweets and the smell of freshly baked cake drifts out from the open kitchen. As well as serving a variety of delicious cakes (with a focus on chocolate) it is this cosy atmosphere that makes The Chocolate Tales so great.

Hidden down a small street that won’t get many passersby, the café is still relatively easy to find, located a few minutes’ walk from Chong Nonsi BTS. Take exit 4 from the SkyTrain and turn right at the first 7-Eleven you come to, the street is unmarked but it is on the left-hand side around 200 metres down. The outside is plain, large glass windows and a chalkboard on which you will find the specials of the day. Inside is a mishmash of different furniture, shelves filled with trinkets and comfy sofas to lounge on. The white walls are decorated with cute cartoons of what can be described as a chocolate dream, clouds of rich dark chocolate and quirky cartoon characters.

The pastel kitchen is open and you can see the cake-making process in action, there is something very homemade about The Chocolate Tales, but the quality and flavours of their cakes are far superior to anything that could be baked at home. When you flick through their menu, or gaze at the beautiful cakes in the glass fridge, it is hard to know what to pick, especially if you are used to only one variety of chocolate cake. Here, they serve chocolate Horlicks cake with white chocolate frosting, fudge cake, an amazing combination of peanut butter and chocolate, brownies… Or if the decision is too hard, you can order a simple chocolate cake with chocolate frosting.

Chocoholic heaven continues in the drinks section of the menu as well, dark chocolate shots: an espresso cup of melt-in-your-mouth thick rich chocolate, a Spanish-inspired blend of cocoa, coffee and orange zest that you mix yourself over a small flame, or the finest hot chocolate, made with Belgian chocolate and creamy milk. If the sound of double chocolate for tea is too much, then there are plenty of other choices on the menu, pink lemonade, Peach Melba smoothie and the usual variety of teas and decent coffees.
