Truth Coffee Cafe hyped up across the world
Coffee became a thing in South Africa in the 1980s. Suddenly, walk-in coffee cafes sprung up in Jozi, Durban, and Cape Town. And, the popularity of the beverage grows stronger. In fact, new startups instantly seem successful. We reported that Coffee Bar Tamdre, which brings a “New Local is Lekker brand,” quickly became popular in the Tshwane area. Throw in deliveries and online orders, and it looks like a winner. Plus, more often these days, cafes get judged less on their food than on their drinkable coffee.
So, staying on top of the game needs attention to detail and expertise. Notably, it seems that Truth Coffee Cafe in Cape Town remains totally committed to keeping its hyped-up reputation.
