Dear Guest

We thank you for you review on our beloved bakery and restaurant. Thank you for taking the time to share your experience with other foodies out there.

Vovo Telo Parkhurst has recently undergone a management change and we would love to see you again in the near future.

Our specialized breads are as fresh as ever so don't hesitate to swing past and pick one up, hot from the oven or pop in for a deliciously prepared meal served with a smile.

We are open daily and we can't wait to see you.

Kind regards

Pieter Blackie

“Very good pear tarte and almond cake!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 9, 2012

Very nice environment to see the baker making bread in the lounge and sitting in the small garden/square is very nice. Good rye bread.
