“Hidden Gin bar”
Review of Honest Chocolate

Owner description: Honest Chocolate is a small artisanal chocolate company based in Cape Town, South Africa. All our chocolate is hand crafted in small batches using traditional, old school chocolate making methods, including hand tempering the chocolate on a granite slab tabletop and hand dipping each chocolate bonbon. The bonbons are then boxed up and the slabs individually wrapped using eco friendly paper. Most chocolate is made from roasted cacao, however we use organic, raw cacao, which is higher in antioxidants and therefore even better for you than regular dark chocolate. The cacao is ethically sourced from Ecuador. There are also no preservatives, additives or emulsifiers in our chocolate and it is free of dairy and processed sugar (instead of sugar we use Agave Nectar which has a very low GI).

Besides the chocolates, there is a hidden gin bar at the back, discovered via introduction by a friend who lives in the city, this has to be Cape Town best kept secret.

The bar is manned by a very knowledgeable bartender, whose passion about the various gin and tonic water available is simply intoxicating.

Love the back yard which reminds me of being in Oporto, Portugal or some quaint rural villages in Italy
There is also an art gallery.

Lots of charm in that corner.

Must experienced for an afternoon drinks with friends.

This little gem of a coffeeshop cannot be praised enough! The small shop is very nice and their service is extremely friendly. But most importantly their self made chocolate creations are incredible. We had a bananabread muffin wich was delicious but the absolute highlight were small pralines each with a different spice to roll them in.
We also got to know Michael the owner. His eyes lit up when we wanted to know more about this place and he told us about their responsible sourcing and local production. You could really feel that he puts his heart and soul into this and that Honest Chocolate is not only a name.
