We had lunch a lovely pizza and a fiery chicken sandwich washed down by a nice capucinno. All while sitting on a lovely porch of the victorian house it is situated in. All this wrapped up in attentive service

Best breakfast in PE. Good food, friendly service, great atmosphere and I always leave with Madeleines. They only use fresh and high quality ingredients.

Perfect place to pop in for lunch on Saturdays - just to chill, experience the vibe and have delicious meals!! We enjoy salads for lunch and the choice at Vovo Telo is wonderful! We had enjoyed the most decadent desserts , and the coffee is great.:) Friendly and helpful staff complete the package - it's top of my list !!

Had a wonderful time at Vovo Telo. Sampled many of the cakes and pastries. Felt like I got my money's worth, and then some! 4 stars because of (very slightly) delayed service when asking for the bill.

My husband loves their strawberry tart like no other sweet treat. We have tried the same dishes at Vovo Tellos in Johannesburg and Durban but it's never quite as good as in PE. The breads are excellent, the lunches are very good - always fresh, colorful and tasty. But it's that strawberry tart we cross town for.

Again. Service terrible. Rest 10 out of 10 Please sort out your service. Waiters are load, walking around doing nothing and ignoring customers shouting to be helped. How many more people must tell you to up your service?

Their cappuccino alone is worth going out of your way for, but the sandwiches are not to be sneezed at. Wish they had longer hours, though. I always feel like the staff would rather I get going, even when closing time is still a little way off!

I've been a regular at Vovo since they opened and although it's not the same personal vibe anymore the food is still amazing. And the best coffee ever. I live in London now and haven't found anywhere that comes anywhere close. The food is really simple and fresh and the menu has something for everyone. I have to go every... More
