Ah, Cape Town you beauty! Not only are you the most beautiful city in the world, you are now also home to the finest Coffee Roast in the world. This is exactly why we love you so much 🙂
So last week, on what was supposed to be “one of our frequent dates, but turns out to be not so frequent after all,” hubby surprised me to this little gem. I swear sometimes he knows me better than I even know myself. When I realised we’re heading to the recently announced “best coffee shop in the world,” Truth Coffee Roasting, not only was I surprised, I was ecstatic.
Those of you who knows Lesley and I or have met us just once, however briefly, will know that we are both huge non-recovering coffee addicts. It was only a matter of time before this joint found us.
Right before you step inside, you almost expect a quietness to greet you that is so synonymous with coffee shops. But as this is not your usual coffee shop, the moment we stepped inside, I was momentarily taken aback by the eclectic, vibrant and upbeat vibe. I was home. Before we knew it, we were laughing out loud with the waiters and their nachos with chicken on pizza had been suggested as a must-try. Yes, nachos. On Pizza. Needless to say, it was to die for and it became clear Truth is popular for much more than their amazing coffee. Which Lesley swears is the best he’s ever tasted. I have to agree.
For the remainder of our lunch date we found ourselves constantly looking around us, completely mesmerized with the tasteful rustic, yet comfortable décor and were constantly lost in conversation about just how amazing this place, its crowd and the service is.
The best way for me to describe Truth is: A coffee bar with a cocktail-sundowners vibe.
