Had Valentines breakfast. The service, food presentation and coffee was great. Really disappointed about the blandness of the food though. And this was in both dishes we ordered. Surprised, as we have heard great things about the place.

Great place for coffee and baked goods. Service was a little slow but the shop was quite busy. As far as I know this is the first of the famous chain of coffee shops.

Enjoyed having breakfast there, very friendly staff and excellent coffee. Wonderful outside sitting. We had to go there by uber and back because we got told its not a good thing to try and walk back to the city centre....

It is always lovely to pop in to Vovo Telo’s for breakfast or lunch. The food is consistently good and the atmosphere is great.

I heard so much about Vovo Telo that I decided to have lunch here on our visit to port elizabeth. We were so impressed that we traveled an extra 20 km to come here again for breakfast. Pizza and Pie are must trys.

I popped in for a breakfast with my wife and enjoyed it. I would certainly recommend it as a breakfast spot if you're in and around PE. The coffee, however, was exceptional (I often tend to judge a breakfast by the quality of the cuppacino and I was not disappointed).

20 minutes after taking our order we were informed that two of the three dishes we ordered were no longer available. When we changed the order there was again an issue with one of the ingredients! Needless to say we went elsewhere. Shocking sevice for such an expensive spot!

I love the old house and tables on the "stoep". I have been to Morningside and Lynnwood bridge restaurants so was looking forward to seeing the original. Service was excellent. Any waiter was willing to help - I always love that in an establishment, it says a great deal about good management. Coffees and teas excellent. We had lunch -... More
