Owner's description

An indulgent chocolate escape in the heart of the Cape Town City. Located between the bustling streets of Loop and Bree, the café has a relaxed atmosphere. Settle down in the sunny outside courtyard, which is part of the original building, or in the cosy inner café.

We offer coffees, teas and hot chocolates, as well as a selection of chocolate truffles, tarts and cakes.

A large portion of our treats are vegan friendly, with the choice of dairy free ice cream from Sorbetiere too, and of course we offer soya milk, or silky nut milk made by the Almond Creamery.

Our specialties are dairy-free milkshakes, our trademark ‘coconut dream’ drink, and the banana bread bunny chow. In the evenings, the Secret Gin Bar opens up behind the Café in the courtyard.

    A lack of enthusiasm from the staff, a lack of 'wow' from the food and a boring presentation make Honest a once-off visit for me and two colleagues. OK, it was just hot chocolate, but try to zoosh it up a bit?
    Chocolate that you don't feel bad about eating!
    A warm and cozy environment lending itself to any food mood. With numerous options catering to each and every dietary requirement, Honest is a Cape Town treasure that every local and visitor should squeeze into their schedule.
    Such an incredible, cosy and vibey spot! The food caters to everyone, with vegan and gluten free options available and the service is friendly and fast! The most delicious chocolate treats I've ever tasted, and all their chocolate is ethically sourced, vegan and dairy-free! A favorite spot in Cape Town for sure!
    Went to Honest Chocolate in Cape Town on Saturday 11 July 15'. The little place is beautiful, but after 5min of standing around and not having a place to sit or any staff member offering alternative seating or info we just ordered from the counter. I had a short and thick hot chocolate. The waiter brought it to a table we eventually secured. It was lukewarm and definitely not thick, tasted exactly like the cocoa I make at home, but no sugar or sweetener was served, we had to get up and ask for it and also to have HOT chocolate, not lukewarm chocolate, which he then changed. The waiter also had a strong alcohol smell to his breath. I understand staff is a huge problem in SA and often difficult to manage, but how difficult can it be as there were only two of them? I blame management and it was the last time this place saw me, Cape Town luckily has an abundance of good cafe's and restaurants.
