Breakfast in Parkhurst Vovo Telo, what a pleasant experience. Decorated in the modern minimalist style, but has a lovely warmth to it made more tempting by showing fresh bread on display in the centre of the shop. We were very pleasantly surprised as the breakfast menu was very different to the usual coffee shop offering. There was a far more Italian flavour to the breakfast menu. Not that it was coffee and a brioche, but that the menu items had a distinctly italian taste through the clever use of the ingredients. The service was attentive and prompt, and the quality of our meal was superb.

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

For the perfect breakfast on a lazy Saturday morning, try this hotspot in Parkhurst! With an European vibe, mornings are busy and bustling, with families and couples all meeting here for some freshly brewed cuppaccino's...breakfast is made to pure perfection and the smell of fresh bread makes you hungry on arrival. Well priced and the eggs Benedict are delicious!

Having heard a lot about this place we went for a breakfast. Can`t say we were all that impressed. The brioche was found to be a little burnt and dry. Service a little on the lethargic side too...... nice ambience though

A friend and I were driving along 4th Avenue during the evening looking for somewhere to have a casual dinner. The location of this restaurant with its charming evening lights made me want to dine there. It looked warm,inviting and charming. Having just experienced this chain earlier that day in a different location based on the amazing cheesecake and coffee I thought it would be great to try their food. I had the Mediterranean pasta which was absolutely delicious and my friend had the pesto pasta which to her disappointment had changed from her previous experiences.
The restaurant was a full house and the waiters coped well. I loved the decor of the restaurant as well as the sight of the beautiful breads and decadent cakes on display.
I am thrilled to read that there is one in my city Cape Town! Can't wait to experience it there.
