Truth Coffee Roasting
Truth is likely the best-known coffee shop on the continent, which brings with it pros and cons. Its slew of accolades and magazine features mean it’s almost always chaotically busy, and staff can be somewhat arrogant and abrasive about allocating seating unless you’re able to fill an entire table. But the controlled chaos and buzzing atmosphere are worth braving for a visit if you’ve yet to venture inside. The decor is on point and the food and coffee are good, and in many ways it’s the most theatrical coffee experience you’ll have in the city. There’s a long communal table if you’re looking to rub shoulders with freelancers or eavesdrop on your neighbours, as well as separate tables and booths if you come in a group.
