Quirky quaint and very cool restaurant / cafe. Their coffee is seriously amazing if you are a coffee connoisseur / snob. I had the Chia Seed Pud which was divine.

Huge disservice if you visit Cape Town without stopping here during your visit! The staff are some of the most friendly I’ve met in all of my travels! They have coffee down to a science and it shows with every sip! My favorites were the sunrise espresso and albumen airship. No worries if youre hungry as the food shines just as bright as the drinks!!

What a great place to start your day. Happy faces at the door and inside you feel the good vibe of this restaurant. The coffee, fresh juice and the avo toast were good.

If you like coffee, you’ll love Truth. The long black was fantastic and all of the dishes coming out looked tasty and hearty. Great service and experience. The Croque Monsieur looked out of this world and the dessert counter was impossible to resist. Misting system inside is lovely. Decor is interesting and exciting with the steam punk theme.

Definite YES for all Visitors and Capetonians.

That's exactly what it reminded me off......the decor, staff etc. Mad Max!!!! Is the coffee any better than other high reputation coffee establishments.....No. But, like all reviews....thats a matter of opinion. Maybe food/ drink tastes better if you add high reputation and a great vibe!!! What makes this place a must visit is the decor/ atmosphere/ service. One of the counters was balanced on three old safes. That's just one example of the quirky decor. Unique for sure and queued out the door. The only negative I can think of is when the bill arrived it worked out the exact tip for 10% (good service), 15% (excellent service) and 20% (outstanding service). When in Rome!!! I don't mind paying 18% to 20% tip in the US as that's the norm however like the UK, SA is more in the region of 10%.
