There is a new spot in town and its hot, hot, hot! Yourstruly on Long Street has swiftly become a hive for buzzing coffee lovers despite having only opened its doors and little service hatch last Saturday. The space is modest with a handful of dark counters and couches that create a beautiful contrast to the panels of weathered apple-palette wood. Think of it as a bit like Marlon Brando meets John Wayne.

There are a selection of pastries and sandwiches on offer. Choose from the ready-made ‘favourites’ like basil and Bree or mozzarella and salami or make up your own monster sarmie as you please. Yourstruly are serving the Deluxe house blend, a combo of beans from Brazil, Ethiopia and Guatemala. This blend is like biting into a slab of smooth dark chocolate – heavenly. Also check out the art on show. Exhibitions change on a monthly basis.

Monday till Friday 07h00 till 17h00 (They are there from 06h00, so if you’re in dire need of a coffee before 07h00 they will happily serve you)
Saturdays 09h00 till 14h00
175 Long Street, Cape Town
