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

Not wanting to spend a fortune on hotel breakfast we set off on an adventure trying to find a good breakfast spot in P.E. What a find! Lovely little hidden gem with such a pleasant atmosphere. Waiters were super friendly but the whole vibe is relaxed. Asked for some breakfast recommendations and ended up taking something else - absolutely delicious!... More

What a wonderful 'artisan' feel to the place. The French toast with mascarapone and berries is the most decadent breakfast I have ever eaten.

Located in one of PE's cafe / restaurant strips, Vovo Telo offers great coffee and food in a beautifully renovated old house and garden. Definitely worth a look.

Vovo Telo is truly set apart from competitors in the area. Natural, organic, vegan and Banting selections on the menu. Creative coffee drinks and smoothies, etc. We've never been disappointed with a visit to Vovo Telo. Parking can be a pain. Also, not really great for large groups. They're always packed. Definitely a more rowdy café experience, but top notch... More

We opted to have a late breakfast here instead of at our hotel. We sat outside on the lovely porch and enjoyed the shade. The service was fun and friendly. The scrambled eggs my husband ordered were delicious - and I don't even usually like eggs! They were creamy, and it was a huge portion (check out the picture!). I... More

Cool café, perfect place for a nice breakfast or coffee break with delicious cakes. The longer the hair of the male waiters the moodier and more unwilling to serve the clients they are, however the store manager was very nice and professionally managed the situation. Thumbs up!

Such a nice spot for an early breakfast (they open at 7:15) or a leisurely brunch. Something on the menu for everyone - banting, healthy or just simply decadent.

My grandparents and I went for lunch one afternoon. There were 4 different waiters that catered to our every need. We felt special and will definitely return!
