The first (and best) Vovo Telo in the country! We stayed just a couple of blocks away from this chic little bakery/eatery in Richmond Hill...nothing better than to pop in for freshly baked pastries on our way to work. Keep up the good work!

Broad choice of dishes all served with or on lovely fresh bread. Very fresh , good value. Pretty out door seating. Friendly staff. Lovely range of hot chocolates. Take away options for those on the go. Fresh bread and cakes for sale. Perfect place for leisurely breakfast

Great coffee, great menu, beautiful little place in Richmond Hill and the best red velvet cake ever. I love the vibe and the setting. A lovely place to meet with friends when I am in Port Elizabeth.

In the trendy Richmond Hill area,We were about 12 schoolfriends meeting after 50 yrs. We were given a huge table to accomodate our big group and where we could catch up for as long as we wanted to.
