“Tasty food, but expensive”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 11, 2014

Went to the one on Stanley on 44, food was interesting and very tasty, but extremely expensive and the portions are very small. The atmosphere was quite nice, not too noisy. Won't go back anytime soon.

“Great breakfast”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 5, 2014

Bustling atmosphere doesn't detract from good service and great food. Definitely the best franchise of this brand in JHB, keeps me coming back for more.

“Business breakfast”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 3, 2014

Arrived at Vovo just after 8. Had a great breakfast with a client. Croissants weren't ready yet, so had to have a slice of toast instead. Little disappointed, but I supposed bakeries have to be there before dawn to get things ready.

Hope next time they have a few.

Strong cappuccino's decaf and regular were great!

All in all a good morning out.

The food was amazing and the service was great. Would definitely recommend, especially on a Saturday night. Very comfortable and relaxed vibe.

“Vovo Telo Lonehill “Terrible””
2 of 5 stars Reviewed December 9, 2013

Compared to the other Vovo Telo's the one in Lonehill for me is the worse, so much potential this place has but there is no one checking the stuff, this place is under new management and no one was there checking they stuff, food was great as always but food take too long to come out, we waited almost an hr for our breakfast but before that we waited almost 25 minutes for the menus, so many people complained yesterday“ 08/12/2013” about the same issue and no management come to apology. So sad but I rather go somewhere else.
