Winters are knocking on our collective doors and our need for warmth is pretty apparent with all the jackets, scarves and the soft blankets coming out. But what brings more warmth than a hot cuppa cocoa, paired with a nice movie, a slice of chocolate cake under a blanket? 

Nothing. 

So here are some of the places where you can get your fix of cosy, with a warm cuppa hot cocoa. 

1. The Big Chill Cafe, Khan Market

You think their food menu is the only thing great about them? Think again. Their hot chocolate is so damn good, it will make you want to curl up in bed with it. It is a physical manifestation of a cuddle.
