I ordered poached eggs on a corn cake - requesting that the poached eggs be done medium, which was lost in translation. The corn cake was vanishingly small... I had to order additional toast to supplement my carbohydrate intake. My breakfast partner's order was a quite weird concoction of poached eggs on a waffle... the combination just doesn't work. Breakfast... More

We stopped here for lunch in the mid-afternoon. The service was prompt and the food was very good. We sat outdoors and it is a nice location near the Ferris wheel.

Everytime I stay in Cape Town I definitly need to have a cake / coffee / dinner at Vovo Telos - I adore the classic pissa, the chocotelo (one slab in a cup) is worth a try. For me, it's like coming home - sitting there on a warm summer evening, watching the people enjoying their evening and having a... More

We had lunch at this establishment and it really was not what we had enjoyed on a previous occasion. I had the Harvest Board, it had some bread, mushrooms, aubergines, tomatoes and olives on it. It was supposed to have beans on aswell which i did not receive. It looked pretty drab and did not taste exceptional either. My husband... More

Inside the restaurant is a dream bakery — ideal for any meal as everything is fresh made. Breakfast was a real treat enjoying fresh made breads, pancakes, and crumpets. The coffee was outstanding and the service was exceptional. We enjoyed multiple times during our stay in Cape Town.

Decided to visit this place on the last day of a 14 day break, which was both good and bad news. Bad news because it's wonderful, good news because if we had known about it I would have put on even more weight on the holiday than I did! Great location which helps, but a good menu, healthy options and... More

Really enjoyed our juice and coffee here but we're disappointed not to be given our change after we paid. Waited ages and eventually went and questioned it. Shortly after the change arrived but no receipt was given.

Very nice and comfortable place to have a break while taking in the Waterfront in Cape Town (Inside or outside as the weather allows). The food's very good, their breads and cakes were delicious and what you could see from other plates, the lunches were tasty as well...

Great spot for breakfast and good choice of options. No smoothies, but the offered alternative is tasty though a bit too sweet for me. Kids loved the make your own hot chocolate from a piece of chocolate on a stick version and it was yummie, too.

Thank pgabo
