Have been visiting for a number of years and is consistently good . Mainly for breakfast but also coffee and cakes in the afternoon . Iggy was really friendly even recognised us and remembered what coffees we had which surprised us considering the amount of...customers he must see each day . Would recommend Vovo Telo when in the V&AMore

We visited for breakfast - food was good, service was very friendly. (Thanks to Brighton) but it was slow. They do have a number of outdoor tables with views across a small green. Between the three of us we had an all day breakfast, breakfast...waffle and the mushroom & halloumi toast - all the food was good. Our drinks, coffees and teas, were very slow to arrive but nice enough once they did. The bill came to 550 rand including service.More

Ok place to have lunch in the Waterfront centrum. Your sandwich is not accompanied by a side order you have to order that separately. Good stop for tea and coffee

Service wasn't good. Half the food didn't come as ordered. Eggs were running instead of well done, tomatoes were fried instead of raw. Coffee and fruit juice came after brunch was eaten.

Called in for coffee a few times whilst staying in Cape Town, always great service and delicious coffee. Also had pasties, really good. Would definitely recommend. Lovely outside area, but also some tables inside if cooler.

Been here previously and had a great time, so suggested Vovo Telo for a Sunday breakfast with family. We were 6 adults and 2 children. No 8 seater tables were available, so we asked it they can join 2 tables for the 8 of us,...only to be told it is against their policy to join tables (there were quite a few tables open, so not a lack of tables). We asked the waiter if we can please speak to the manager, but he said that the manager would say the same - it is against their policy to join tables, we will have to sit at two seperate tables. We decided to rather leave and go to a restaurant willing to seat us together. Just blows my mind how you would rather lose 8 paying customers than move a table.More

Wow. Haven’t had such poor service in a restaurant in a long long time. Three of us wanted to grab some coffees and something light to eat mid morning. Waited forever for service. Then the waitress only took coffee orders from two of us. We...asked another waiter to let her know and he communicated to her that we needed another cappuccino. It didn’t arrive when the rest of the order did. She only placed the additional order then. 30 minutes later we were still waiting for our last coffee and we’re told had to wait for it’s spot in the queue. At the same time the table behind us is asking the manager on the floor how to get service as they’re still waiting for someone to take their order too. Decided not to order food as they seemed to be really struggling with service. Asked for our bill, coffee still hadn’t arrived. Got them to take it off the bill, paid and left. Won’t be back in a hurry.More

How much can a place change, or we just had extremely bad luck. On the day before we went out to fly back to Europe, we saved the best for last! or so we thought! We arrived at lunchtime to a not so busy outside...terrace - we took our seats - my wife and I, and are 2 small kids. We ordered our drinks, and some food - a burger - with salad (no fries) for myself (recommended by the staff, and supervisor) and a butter chicken panini for my wife, and we asked for 2 slices of bread of our kids. (as they were hungry - and there isn't much of a menu for small children) - also no high chairs. In any case - food took long - I received my burger with wedges first (1st mistake), my wife received a butter chicken pasta (2nd mistake), and the bread for the kids does not arrived (as if it were forgotten), already irritated - I walk to the supervisor to ask why 2 slices of bread take so long. The waiter does not apologise - tries to get my wife to take the pasta anyway - where we respond that we are willing to wait. After all this - my wife pays the bill. I check the bill (and see that through all of this - the bill hasnt been checked by our waiter. (clearly having an off day - and no service recovery!) Also not from the manager on duty. I see I reviewed back in 2017 (which makes me see this as sad that its declined so much)More

Unfortunately I had a really bad experience here this morning. The food was lovely and the waiters were so helpful and attentive. However an older gentleman wasn't feeling well at a nearby table and another lady shouted for help as he said he felt faint....I am a nurse so I went over to help and the poor guy collapsed and became unconscious. I had to ask other diners for help to get him on the floor to check he was still breathing ect. He came around and I managed to call his wife from his phone who came immediately. Whilst the poor guy was lying on the floor, someone, who I presume to be the owner, an older guy in a cap came over to me and asked if I was a relative. I explained no I am a nurse and he said "well you need to go and sit back down, I have 6 tables to fill here and nobody will want to eat if everyone is crowding around this guy, this will loose me business". I was so shocked, I said that is a disgusting thing to say, this poor man was clearly unwell and all he was thinking about was his business. His wife came pretty much straight away and was trying to attend to her husband who was still on the floor at this point. She then was on the phone to his Dr trying to get help and the owner told her she needs to go and take her husband with him!!! He was not well enough to go anywhere! A few other tables heard the owner and were equally upset and angry at his comments. It's such a shame because the other staff were so lovely but unfortunately the owner ruined my experience here and I certainly wouldn't give him any more business!!More

Staff so incredibly friendly, all the baked goods (including their granolas, breads, croissants, cakes) are some of the best I’ve had in my entire life - made fresh daily at their Steenberg bakery!
