We had an excellent brunch at Vovo Telo this morning. On a cold winter morning, it was warm inside and the staff were wonderful. I had a lovely toasted croissant with chicken liver and two poached eggs, very well priced as well.

Thoroughly enjoyed breakfast. Sitting outside under the trees. Efficient, pleasant yet unobtrusive service. Delicious breakfast, served with flair. Excellent coffee. What more could you ask for? Will definitely visit it again.

Vovo Telo is a favourite in Parkhurst with friendly staff and a good menu. They are also happy to do take aways. Fits into the trendy Parkhurst vibe.

Relaxing environment, friendly staff. Good place to spend couple of hours. Variety of the menu is nice, our favorite is their bread. You can stay outside in a sunny day (which is not possible everywhere in Johannesburg)
