What a great bake!

This bakery/ restaurant is always a lovely choice, since each restaurant has its own character and atmosphere. Seating is offered at tables inside or outside at beautiful wooden tables. It is a busy venue and usually at least 60% occupied at any time – whether for coffee or meals. The menu... read more

First restaurant I tried on Jozi's food street, I really liked the food I ordered - was well done and delicious. It was also quite delicious. The ambience was also great despite it being a rainy afternoon. I did order a stout, but like most craft stouts, this was a bit weak as compared to your typical bottled stout.

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

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
