This restaurant offers an inviting setting - under umbrellas in the hustle and bustle of the Waterfront. We were there for Sunday morning breakfast. We waited FOR EVER to order coffee and food. When the coffee finally arrived it was hardly warm and then we had to wait even longer for the food to arrive. The scrambled egg was a... More

This cafe is unpretentious and reasonably priced, with excellent food in an area full of expensive tourist traps and banal fast food. The salads are great - and try the lemon cheesecake!

Although the menu is lacking a few breakfast options I would typically order; it makes up with lots of baked options . I especially liked my muesli with a blueberry muffin. Huge portion , no way did I need the eggs and meat I'm usually ordering. Felt like I area healthy breakfast for me. Great view and coffee was excellent... More

In the middle of the Waterfront attractions, a nice stop for a light meal or good coffee. Not to be missed.

Me and my brother in law went here for a healthy quick dinner after shopping and it was very good. We both had a salad and I ordered mine with the gluten free bread which was really very good. Beets, goat cheese and greens with buckwheat bread, bring it on! This place is great for coffee and brunch too!!

Location is nice in the middle of V&A Waterfront, relaxed and down-to-earth place with seating outside. Service ok, a bit busy to be friendly. Food is pretty much average, not outstanding, but ok for a quick lunch. Value-for-money very fair.

We dropped in to get some muffins for takeaway. Carrot ones were absolutely amazing! I would love to go back!

We parked at the Waterfront and came here pre our Robben Island tour. Right next to the Ferris wheel and we had a great breakfast. We were generally underwhelmed by the food at the Waterfront but we came back here for lunch. Their fresh OJ is expensive but is the best. Good location and food and highly recommend for a... More

We enjoyed a lovely evening eat out at Vovo Telo in February, the customer service we received from Brian was outstanding and the food matched it! The portion sizes were huge, we also ate here or had takeaway a few other times and the food was to the same standard. Worth a visit if you want fresh wholesome food at... More

A great place to either have a very hearty breakfast or to stop for an 11am coffee and cake, of which there is a lot to choose from - the children's heads went into meltdown over the variety! Ended up with the rocky road cake that was a HUGE portion and delicious, but even the kids had to admit defeat... More
