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.

Great cafe on the waterfont. Perfect for lunch or dinner or just having a coffee. Pizza here is delicious. Prices are reasonable and service is great.

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

Went for breakfast. Waited 15 mins to get served then another 20 for coffee to come. My order eventually came and was all hard and messed up. So hard I could not cut into it. Changed my order to a croissant. Waited a further 20 mins for the waiter to come back and say they don't have any. If you... More

Stopped here for lunch today. Were quite busy but we thought we were lucky to get a table. Waited 45 minutes to order and another 40 minutes for food. Chicken Sriracha salad was flavourless. Tomato pizza was so heavily soaked in pesto it looked bright green. Almost inedible and spent 5 minutes scraping excess pesto off. Would have sent the... More

Good service at this busy waterfront restaurant. The wine we had was excellent. We both opted for spicy bacon pizza. Not really spicy and not really pizza but it was pleasant enough. This place specialises in quality artisan breads. Whilst the pizza base was how I like my pizza- thin and crispy, it wasn't a traditional topping and really didn't... More
