I stopped at Vovo Telo on route to a meeting. I parked a far distance away as the center was extremely busy. I ordered a smoked salmon and cream cheese sandwich on rye. I received 4 half pieces of dry toast with cream cheese and a thick piece of smoked trout dumped on top. Not even black pepper or salt!... More

I often eat at Vovo Telo Bedfordview with clients. It's my "go to" place for business meetings. The food is awesome, coffee tasty and the service is always good!!! A great place!

This Vovo is amazingly different because of the love that goes into the food preparation and cooking. Everything from the salads to sandwiches and the oxtail is EXCELLENT! A wonderful spot if you want to "hide" to get some work done (yes they have a plug available) and obviously endless cups of coffee, tea or hot chocolate creations. Love, love,... More

Breakfast in a small yet focused restaurant. Food was well prepared and tasty. A personalised venue that is excellent and not overcrowded.

Lovely little place! Met my family for lunch. The food was great; perfect café blends, with a touch of home.

We hadn't been here for a while and we were not disappointed for breakfast. It was Freedom Day public holiday and the place was busy. The waiter was friendly and attentive, the food arrived quickly and all meals were very tasty. Keep it up as we will return time and time again.

The food, the treats, the staff, the owner all are amazing. However, the cutlery such as the metal cups for tea, the tables and chairs and the flies are not great. I think the flies are a problem because of the wooden tables which are not cleaned properly. The owner needs to look into this. Otherwise, I keep going back... More

After reading good revues, I expected better. The menu shows loose leaf teas, but only Earl Grey was available, or 5 roses as the waitress told me. I ordered the salmon board. Well it's just a few slices of decent smoked salmon, with a "deconstructed" salad. The ingredients are just displayed on the board - radish slices, chunks of beetroot,... More

We have only visited Volvo Telo for lunch but on all occasions the food was amazing and mouth watering. Tasty meals served quickly, try their pizza base delights and salads
