Delicious breakfast, great coffee and friendly service is what you can expect from this Port Elizabeth gem. Relaxed atmosphere with enough hustle and bustle to keep you interested but not distracted. The cakes and pastry items are good too. The Pickering and Surrey Hills are my two top breakfasts, most definitely worth a try!!

I've been to Vovo Telo a few times recently and had to applaud the restaurant on its great food. The breakfasts are delicious and equally healthy with freshly squeezed juice to complete the table. Service can be a bit slow at times but the awesome food and general restaurant vibe make up for it!

Lovely little cafe and bakery. Friendly staff. The chai tea is a must! We stopped for breakfast on a rainy morning, several menu options. Croissants where fresh and perfect. Brioche French toast was a favorite with the kids!

I so enjoy this coffee shop / bakery / restaurant. The food is beautifully prepared. The coffee is wonderful and the breakfast choice is the best! In a Monday there is a breakfast special - two eggs , bacon and toast with a creamy cappuccino for the good price of R40.

We enjoyed the food in this busy restaurant with a friendly and great service. Very relaxed atmosphere. Our pizza was tasty. The coffee and dessert was lovely . Even the breakfast we had the following morning was great too. We highly recommend it.

I have never had a bad experience at Vovotelo. I've had breakfast, brunch, lunch, afternoon coffee. I've been with family, friends and overseas visitors. Done it all. A number of times. Never fail in their service and product. The service is polite, friendly, efficient and more often than not with a smile and a generosity of spirit, despite often being... More
