Great little spot for lunch / coffee. Had some delicious pizza & a rooibos infused coffee (unusual!). All staff were incredibly friendly and happy to chat and explain their local delicacies. Parking is easy just around the corner and plenty of other nice restaurants in walking distance!

Vovo telo has great coffee and pastries. Breakfast is always good, their version of pizza is delish. Consistent, friendly and great variety of casual food.

We had lunch a lovely pizza and a fiery chicken sandwich washed down by a nice capucinno. All while sitting on a lovely porch of the victorian house it is situated in. All this wrapped up in attentive service

Best breakfast in PE. Good food, friendly service, great atmosphere and I always leave with Madeleines. They only use fresh and high quality ingredients.

Had a wonderful time at Vovo Telo. Sampled many of the cakes and pastries. Felt like I got my money's worth, and then some! 4 stars because of (very slightly) delayed service when asking for the bill.

My husband loves their strawberry tart like no other sweet treat. We have tried the same dishes at Vovo Tellos in Johannesburg and Durban but it's never quite as good as in PE. The breads are excellent, the lunches are very good - always fresh, colorful and tasty. But it's that strawberry tart we cross town for.
