There are some places in the world where it is way cooler to be seen engaged in this kind of activity than others. The Daily Meal rounded up what they think are the 11 coolest and Cape Town’s own TRUTH Coffee was named the 2nd coolest spot to enjoy a coffee in the world!

With a loud steampunk aesthetic and home-roasted coffee so good that they provide the beans for various five-star hotels in South Africa, Truth Coffee is a must-see in Cape Town. For those who don’t know, steampunk is a style heavily inspired by steam-powered machinery from the 19th century. . As a result, steampunk style incorporates grand Victorian styles with modern punk, which is why you’ll find saw-blade tabletops, a plethora of exposed pipes, vintage typewriters, Singer sewing machines, and many other Old-World-meets-New-World elements at Truth Coffee. They even have a barista school and a 1940s Probat roaster named Colossus.
