So last week saw the return of the Best of Cape Town polls to find the best places in the city as voted for by locals. 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. I simply add up the nominations and the one with the highest number ranks top. Last week i asked where in Cape Town you would go for the best coffee and of course it was hotly debated and nominations poured in. A grand total of 27 places were submitted and for the first time it was a tie for top honours. I decide to take the top 2 and go into sudden death by running a Twitter poll which after 24 hours and nearly 400 votes came as close as possible to another tie. In the end though the best coffee place in Cape Town voted for by you fine readers was Bootlegger. Narrowly beating Truth for top spot.
Well done to Bootlegger.
