Truth, Cape Town

Paul Murray - 2010-01-26

Green Point, Cape Town
Award: Three out of three coffee beans!

At Truth coffee roastery you soon realise not all coffees are created equal. My choice was the Vengeance Blend, forgiving, never forgotten. Light meals (wraps) are available. There’s plenty of space and a permanent exhibition on Cape Town history, especially for history buffs. Outside seating in shade, with Table Mountain in view, makes it special. Plenty of free, on-street parking.    

The front wall of the Prestwich Memorial which displays the original city slave graves inside – entrance is free. This modern rectangular ossuary houses the remains of more than 2,500 exhumed bodies that were discovered on a building site in Green Point in 2003. The unmarked graves are believed to have been those of slaves, servants and other underprivileged Cape Town inhabitants from the 17th and 18th centuries, and the memorial pays tribute to these forgotten people and the contribution they made to building the city into what it is today.
