For your morning glory and a healthy creative breakfast of home - made yummy bakes. Vovo Telo is the perfect quaint arty place to catch up on conversations, view the V & A or read a book in delight.

Lovely little artisan cafe on V&A waterfront serves really good pizzas and light meals. Great place for breakfast lunch or early tea. Enjoy a great cup of coffee and watch the world drift past.

We ate here twice when we visited Cape Town. The salads in particular were excellent and the service was good. Very reasonably priced and in a great location within the Victoria and Alfred Waterfront.

Good selection for breakfast, we both ordered poached egg with salmon. Decent portion size and lovely hot chocolate drinks. A number of cyclists use it a sa breakfast venue so they can't be wrong!

First: no toilet, you'll have to go into V&A Waterfront. But that's the only drawback. Creative ideas for food, good pizza and really good bread and coffee available. Crafts beer and others on the drink list. Communicative staff in a friendly and appealing surrounding.

Thought this was just a bakery/coffee joint but we sat for lunch and were thrilled with the pizzas made on nan bread. Delicious! Had Butter Chicken Pizza that was drizzled with spiced yogurt and cilantro. Also had steak pizza with sweet onions and bbq sauce.

We are used to the Vovo Telo in Port Elizabeth- so it was with a degree of expectation that we sat down to eat lunch at Vovo Telo in the V&A waterfront. The service was appalling. The maitre'd shouted at us for moving our table a few centimeters out the sun. Then the orange and beetroot salad I ordered came... More

Our lunchtime choice of Café Alfredo caught fire whilst we were there so we tried here. Had a job getting served and then the food was at best average. Lots of other places to go that are better. They do not have any toilets and you are directed to the nearest shopping mall, this may give you a clue on... More
