Visited Vovo Telo for lunch. The food was outstanding, I would definitely recommend this Restuarant to anyone.

Easy access for average brunch. Heard many customers complaining about slack service ( slow, incorrect orders) our meal was indeed slow and average

Great Service, really good menu and the coffee is extra specially fantastic. We ordered a salad and both were delicious and well presented by a smiling efficient waitress. Highly recommended.

Have been to Vovo Telo a couple of times. Mainly for meetings in the day. Most recently went for coffee and cake after dinner at another restaurant. Their cake slices are big enough to serve 4 people! Carrot cake was delicious - but needed a takeaway!

I'd been travelling all day and wanted a light, but healthy meal with a glass of wine. Monday nights are a challenge, so this was one of the few places that was open. My friend initially said she'd had a supper. She selected the chickpea fritters and I the chicken and couscous. Fabulous choices and the selections of wine by... More

Great bakery with take away and eat in. Excellent bread, good selection of cakes, all made with excellent quality ingredients thoughtfully used. Buzzy morning to late afternoon.

Came here once for breakfast and was very satisfied with my meal. Oddly, I haven't been back since. I guess its a safe option and the menu is not extremely extensive.

I love Vovo Telo, it's been my favourite breakfast place for nearly five years. You just cannot go wrong with them. Every time I've been to Joburg (which is quite a few now), I've made sure to have breakfast here. Food: this time round, I had the griddle cakes with scrambled eggs. Delicious, and very filling. Sadly, I can't remember... More

Be sure to consider our venue for your next Corporate Event/Meeting/Lunch or Dinner, we offer great specials to groups who wish to... More

I've always been a fan of Vovo Telo and thought I would try the one in Parkhurst for brunch. They must know that week ends are extremely busy for them but the service was severely lacking. Long waits for food, a refill and milk. No attention to detail and if I hadn't repeatedly asked for my food, a refill or... More

Good Evening Kim, You are right, we should know and do in fact know that every weekend we are very busy. We have full manning on both days, however our small kitchen is only capable of producing so much "fresh" food in the time necessary to deliver quality food. None of our food comes out of a can, everything, including... More
