We were walking past this restaurant and decided to stop there for lunch. Ever since that day it has been our favourite hang out when wanting to eat a pizza or a good salad. They bake their own breads and cakes as well. My husband and I really like this place!

An early morning outing (before 7:30 am) brought me to the Parkhurst branch. The reception was bright and friendly- just what you need when you have not been properly woken up yet. The coffee was just sublime! So worth an early morning. There is also a wide variety of food, all featuring the branch's own divinely freshly prepared bread, baked... More

Love the coffee at Vovo Telo. I work there often and staff are always very accommodating and friendly. It's my happy place.

The staff of Vovo Telo Parhurst went above and beyond in accommodating my request to host a birthday tea for my sickly daughter on a weekend - reservations aren't usually accepted on Sundays. From the flowers on the table, to the attentive service and the follow up SMS, I cannot rave enough. My husband, younger daughter and I sat at... More

We stopped in here for afternoon tea and had the olive bread and some sweet treats and pastries. The service was sub par, with us having to call the wait staff back a few times to ask for things that had been forgotten. The seating was extremely cramped and really uncomfortable for a long visit, so we didn't stay long... More

We went there on Sunday for brunch and I was very impressed with the food and the cappuccino, not so much the service. My friend had the ciabatta pizza which he enjoyed, i had the bunny chow which was really good, and my wife had a fillet and chorizo dish which she loved. The cappuccinos there is brilliant, and the... More

Had lunch here with friends on a sunday, the coffee and cappuccinos were spectacular. Ice tea cocktails were delicious and the pizza was great. The service was very slow and should be better which would've made the experience much much better. But a good time overall

Visited with a business associate for an early breakfast - thank you for being open at 7am! Waitress was very friendly, and helpful. We did not always have to summon her! Food was very tasty and wholesome. Great bakery fragrances. Hot coffee. Seemed to be busy as people came in and out for take-away coffee and boxes of goodies. The... More

We have had quite a few meals at Vovo Telo in Lonehill, Johannesburg. One good thing that has changed for the better is that breakfast is now served all day. If you stick to their breakfast menu and not try and order any olive bread sticks you'll probably enjoy the experience. The bread sticks used to be good, mine wasn't... More
