Vovo Telo {Giveaway}


I recently visited Vovo Telo in Parkhurst for lunch with vouchers that Zomato had kindly given me. I'd heard so much about this franchise and I was looking forward to finally trying it out! 
"It all began with hunger on a Madagascan beach back in July 2006... And then an old man on an old bicycle answered our craving for great bread; with his bike stacked high with fresh baguettes the taste and experience was something to cherish and it was something we wanted everyone back home to enjoy. And so with that the name Vovo Telo was born, taken from a place and a moment in time where the inspiration first took hold of us.
Richmond Hill, Port Elizabeth, soon became our home... Artisan baking masters came to share their skills and experiences with us. Fresh aromas would drift down Raleigh Street through the morning air, and people would come to investigate, watching us at work. Over time, our customers began to realise what artisan baking was all about and eventually, they would even begin to bring their own fillings for our freshly baked bread and sit and eat them on our stoep. So we thought it was only hospitable to put down some tables and chairs, and perhaps offer a perfect coffee to go with that morning croissant. From there, options expanded into a range of sandwiches, pastries, light breakfasts and lunches that you can enjoy at any of our bakeries today..."


Check out their Day Menu and  Evening Menu on their website. I really love the unique quirky feel of the website and this gave me even more confidence that this franchise was going to impress!

They have done exceptionally well for themselves and have opened up various branches throughout South Africa - 
Jozi
44 Stanley, Cresta, Bedfordview, Lonehill, Parkhurst, Sandton, Waterfall Corner, Norwood.

Port Elizabeth

Pretoria

Cape Town

Durban

Unfortunately I didn't have a great experience at my lunch but I'm confident that it was an off day and will definitely give them another try sometime this year! In the meantime, I have 3 Zomato vouchers worth R80 each to give away. Simply like my Facebook page - Deer Delights and like the Vovo Telo post to enter. For extra entries either comment on this blog post or on the facebook post about why you think I should give Vovo Telo another try or why you'd like to! Winner will be announced on Friday 23rd Jan.

  1. When I still lived in PE we used to go the original one quite a lot before it became a franchise. Sometimes their sarmies are a bit dry for my taste but the cakes and coffee have always been great.

  2. Oh my, those cakes!!!!!! I think you should give them another try. I wasn't happy with a croissant at the Grayston branch and they called me to say I can come in any time to get a replacement at no cost.... maybe it was just an off day
