We stopped here for breakfast. Very friendly staff. We both ordered eggs with artisan toast and a side order of avocado. The bread was so hard it was impossible to cut. We both agreed that the avocado had a peculiar taste.

I stopped in here twice. Once for a quick afternoon bite and once for a coffee and roll. The afternoon bite was their chicken burger and Sweet Potato crisps. The burger was great. It was moist and full of flavor. The Sweet potato not so much. I was expecting something more like American french fries made with sweet potatoes. What... More

When in a rush at the V&A take a moment to go to this Vovo Telo. In winter upstairs is cosy. In summer the terrace is sunny and great. Juices are fresh and excellent. The pastries are very good.

We ate here twice during our stay in Cape Town. The food was excellent and service first class in a relaxed atmosphere. Very good value for money.

We were really looking forward to going to this cafe after seeing the lovely setting on the V&A waterfront. Unfortunately, my meal (chickpea fritters) was cold and tasteless, and my partner's was not much better. The service was OK but lacking compared to all of the other wonderful places in the area. We went hoping to get the brunch menu... More

Lunched here, shared a veggie platter which was delicious. Nice to sit in the shade and watch the world pass by. Service was attentive and swift.

Wish we had found this excellent eatery earlier. We had a family brunch and it was simply fantastic. Lots of interesting dishes with unique twists. I had the pulled pork eggs benedict- very very tasty. Coffee was great as were the prices. Lunch and dinner menu looked enticing too. Will definitely be back when we return next year.

We loved it! Went there for breakfast and also later for a late lunch. Breakfast was good, but the lunch was great! We had Pisa, which was delicious, and mini burgers, which were also awesome! Would definitely go back there again the next time.

However my mom and sister had a lasagna wich wasn't that good but me and my father had a great chicken schnitzel so the food is a bit up and down! Nice location,... More
