This is my second review of Vovo Telo and my second visit was better than the first. We arrived at a busy time but the staff managed to find seating for us. Our waiter was helpful. The food was excellent but the coffee is definitely the star. The meal size are huge and I would recommend children sharing.

Great vegetarian options with service to go with it, and convenient parking and access! The location is superb, and the menu options really varied, and of a good quality.

We had a wonderful Friday family lunch at Vovo Telo. The service was great and the food was delicious. They make a great flat white too. Highly recommend purchasing some of their baked goods.

Our department colleagues shared a team building breakfast at Vovo Telo. The coffee was excellent and the food more than substantial. The waitress was as friendly as you can find. All in all a great experience

Lunch is pleasant, breakfast is way better elsewhere. Service slow and inconsistent. Food better before Famous Brands bought it

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.

'Vovo Telo' has really unique and tasty breakfast choices. Also, delicious fresh breads available. Excellent coffee & tea, friendly service. Port Elizabeth & Waterfront Cap Town, the best place for brunch in South Africa
