Truth Coffee

Cape Town’s Truth Coffee Roasting named best coffee shop in the world – again

The list of 13 international spots includes the likes of Café Central in Austria, Workshop Coffee in London and Coffee Academics in Hong Kong.

The themed coffee shop restaurant has staff members who all wear hats and waistcoats seemingly plucked right out of an Oliver Twist production, notes “The theme is steampunk, that homage to an imagined quasi-Victorian time of retro-futuristic technology that looks like it was made from your gran’s old copper kitchen pots, polished cabinet wood and leather belts. Basically, the off-cuts of the industrial revolution.”

Writes The Telegraph, “There are few cafes in the world as stunning as Truth, a ‘steampunk inspired’ artisan coffee shop that is filled from top to bottom with metal piping and quirky old machinery.

“But people don’t just flock there for the decor – the coffee is all hand-roasted in a vintage cast-iron drum, and the company supplies many of South Africa’s top hotels.”

The eclectic Buitenkant Street roastery also won a highly commended prize in the coffee shop category at the 2015 Eat Out Mercedes-Benz Best Everyday Eateries for the Western Cape, and was nominated for the Boschendal Style Award at the 2015 Eat Out Mercedes-Benz Restaurant Awards.
