Honest Chocolate keeps everyone sweet
Craftsmen lovingly turn out divine explosions of taste at its tiny factory in Woodstock
THESE days many people are looking for crafted food and drink products and chocolate is no exception. Honest Chocolate is a small Cape Town company which hand crafts slabs and divine little bon-bons of raw organic chocolate. Everything is done the old-fashioned way, which is labour intensive, but the result is a bit of heaven in your mouth.
The magic takes place at its tiny factory in Woodstock, but there is also the Honest Chocolate Café in the city centre where you can sit at a table and tuck into all sorts of chocolate-based treats from brownies and milkshakes to ice cream and the famous chocolate “bunny chow” made with banana bread.
At the back is the gin bar – it has no real name other than that – where on certain evenings you can choose from a wide variety of local and imported gins to enjoy in the tiny courtyard.
It’s one of our favourite hangout places, and the interesting story
