Here in the Cape, we are a bit twisted. Who can blame us? a diverse cultural heritage is a serious understatement. Diversity is all about the upsides. Yes, our glasses tend to run half full. This menu is a celebration of how that diversity has defined food in the South of Africa, and in the Cape, more specifically. We have tradition, culture, icons and of course, clichés. This is us embracing that good stuff and deliberately getting it all wrong in a most delicious way. Celebrating and honouring the culture that we all grew up with and are so proud to be a part of. Shoo-wow, Gastro-Kaap is a thing, don’t hate us, please?

    Best to stick to the coffee in the day. After dark concept could work but didn’t quite in our eyes

    Loved the lamb Bunny chow and pap and wors, also ordered the prawn samosa which was disappointing, and sauce overpowering for our taste. Fish Frikadels were beautiful to look at, but none of us could eat them, GF bread inedible, would have way preferred a GF cracker with “crunch” to contrast the “pate”. Malva pudding was excellent, peppermint crisp tart disappointing, not enough peppermint for our liking. Service very good. Unfortunately place was empty, so not much ambience.

    The service was great, and the decor is funky, but we were not impressed by the high tea offering. The savory food was minimal and barely enough. Egg mayo and dry cucumber sandwiches are hardly inventive. The second 'course' consisting of chocolate/sweets in comparison was too much to stomach before a third 'course' consisting of just one small slice of salami, small slice of cheese and a slice of bread per person! I kept thinking surely there must be more coming? The champagne served was also highly suspicious. The bottle was not opened in front of us, and we are very confident that the 'champagne' served was definitely not Pol Roger, as it did not taste anything like a French champagne. We were also not impressed with the fact that the coffees were served in one cup per 2 people - forcing colleagues to share and drink from the same cup! None of us thought this was appropriate. Sorry to say I cannot recommend the high tea at Truth
