The interior of Truth, in Buitenkant Street, Cape Town. An American magazine called it “the most beautiful coffeeshop on earth “. It certainly is theatrical. The mask here is that of Guy Fawkes, from the movie V for Vendetta. The mask later became a symbol of the Occupy Movement against Capitalism. So it may seem a bit odd, or at least a bit postmodern ironic, to see it in a coffeeshop. Then again, throughout history, coffeeshops have been places where revolutions are brewed, fuelled by cup after cup of the known hallucinogenic we call coffee.
