It has been 2 years inbetween my visits to Vovo Telo and my once favourite of all time places in Port Elizabeth went from a 10 to a 5. Service was slow and our waitress rather unfriendly and it was not that busy when we visited. Our waitress had to be called on numerous times as she did not check... More

If you're in PE and you want a place to have some delicious breakfast / lunch / brunch with a great on street atmosphere you have to try Vovo Telo. It's a lovely hidden gem frequented by locals in the know. Have a freshly squeezed juice too!

Great breakfast and double size coffee is wonderful. Try the buttermilk pancakes with marscapone. The write ups are on target about the service but the food is well worth the wait. Get a table outside if you can and enjoy the sunshine and the coffee while you're waiting.

Really enjoyed sitting on their victorian style porch! The food was delicious and I loved their desserts (it's also a bakery).

We had a Saturday afternoon meal at Vovo Telo. What good food, atmosphere and excellent service with a great host. There white coffee are to die for and the open omelette breakfast are super yummy. A real gem in the hub of PE.

One of the nicest venues to have a cup of coffee and breakfast. Waiters are slow and you find yourself having to sip very slowly on your coffee (thankfully it's a good cup of coffee.) Orders that are processed in the kitchen is screamed to the kitchen staff and becomes loud as waiters also chat at the top of their... More

Living the banting life style, pizza is always a huge temptation! Until today...lovely thin cauli-base with any regular toppings. The base is very tasty. Almost to good to be true, I will have to get used to eating 'pizza' again and not feel guilty. Thank you Vovo I will be back again!

We are frequent diners at this cosy yet professional bistro. Serving breakfast all day (they are that good!), the best flat white in PE and scrumptious salads and gourmet sandwiches , they are difficult to fault. Service is always attentive and the owner always comes to greet patrons. To top it all off... Their freshly baked cakes and breads are... More
