  • Best of Cape Town 2016 – who makes the best coffee in Cape Town? [poll]
    Posted by on Feb 18th, 2016

    The time has come to bring back the Best of Cape Town polls since it’s been a few years that i last did them. If you were’nt around back then then let me school you quickly. Basically it’s a crowd-sourced go-to list for anyone wanting to know where in Cape Town they can find for example the best burger, or pizza or coffee for example. I know there are already lists like that or restaurant reviews on several websites, but they are all made by so called ‘experts’ in the industry and are seldom unbiased. What i’m going for is a people’s choice list of what the best places are through social networks like Twitter and Facebook and here on Life is Savage.

    Because why?…locals know best.

    I’m tired of reading that the best restaurant in Cape Town is blah blah according to some foreign magazine or website. They don’t know the real deal. I want insider info…the word on the street.

    Right you know the drill so without wasting more time let’s go with the first Best of Cape Town poll of 2016. One that was a very hot topic last time around.

    Where in Cape Town would you go for the best coffee?


    If you are gonna make a suggestion on Twitter or Facebook then please use the hashtags #BestofCapeTown2016 and #BestCoffee along with my Twitter handle @lifeissavage so i can track the results.

    Leave a comment below this post as well so everyone can see your choice. Feel free to say which type of coffee is your favourite and why you think so. Be sure to include price, size, ambience, friendliness of staff, hotness of other customers…anything really that will help other decide where they wanna get a cup.

    Coz the whole point is to share this info with others so we can feel part of Cape Town’s inner circle.

    I’ll give you a few days to get your favourites in then will count up the nominations and make a top 10 list based purely on your input.

    Now let’s hear it…who makes the best coffee in Cape Town?

    Truth Coffee down at the V&A Food Building is my favourite. The coffee is the star and it is possibly the least bitter I’ve ever had. I had a cappuccino a couple of times on our recent trip to Cape Town and was stunned at the flavour. It was consistent as was the excellent service. Very, very impressed and hope to get back to Cape Town and experience that taste again one day!

    Rosetta gets my vote. Specifically, their Nicaraguan Finca Las Marias blend.
