Great Food

A guest and I had a light lunch at Vovo Telo last week out on the verandah and really enjoyed our brunch. The coffee is divine and we could not resist buying a few cakes on our way out !!!

We loved it here. We were made to feel very comfortable. We visited a few times whilst on holiday in Port Elizabeth. Each time the food was wonderful, staff attentive and good with the kids. Lots of little extras: blankets for when we sat outside, and extra slices of lemon for our little ones drink, all done without having to... More

We quite enjoy this comfortable Saturday breakfast spot. The coffee is pretty good and I like the breakfast dishes on offer. The staff, while a bit distracted at times (you can't really blame them...it can get quite chaotic in there), always make up for their mistakes most apologetically and are all very friendly. While the pasteis de nata are average,... More

The food at Vovo Telo is very good, and the coffee is excellent, I just think the Coffee is very expensive, they should offer a cheaper refil, as most coffee lovers will have more than one cup, but the price makes it unaffordable to have more than one cup. The staff was friendly and helpfull. Menu is interesting, would be... More

We have been to Vovo Tela several times for brunch, and I often pop in to buy artisan breads, and one of my favourites, the olive bread sticks. Their baked goods are EXCELLENT, and they have THE best carrot cake that I have tasted. For me, the only negative is, if one is seated outside, finding one's self, caught near... More

Spend the last 3 days in PE, struggling to find good food and coffee, not really the best place for a "food snob" :)! Was reccomended Vovo Telo by a friend and this changed my whole outlook towards Port Elizabeth, perfect lunch spot! Bunny Chow to die for and the best coffee in Port Elizabeth by far! I will be...
