Truth coffee {steampunk coffee shop}

I'm a self confessed coffee snob. I love well roasted coffee, and I love a coffee shop that delivers great coffee and a great vibe. Truth coffee is THE place that offers both. It's a steampunk themed coffee shop in the fringe district of Cape Town, a travel writer actually said that this is the best in the world. And I agree. This shop is filled with little quirks and well thought out details, from the gigantic coffee machine, to the little trinkets and books placed in the shop. The tables, the chairs, even the baristas are dressed as if they came out of a fantasy steampunk comic book.

Haldenmartin did an amazing job of interior design, and anyone should go, even if you're not a coffee drinker. The guys who started up this place chose excellent origin coffee and they have delicious food on offer. I ordered the all day steampunk eggs benedict and iced coffee. Not actually any different to a normal eggs benedict ha ha. But it was rather good.

I snapped a couple pics, but I'd like to go back and do a proper shoot with a couple dressed to the theme. Anyone interested?
