Vovo Telo

Bakery & Cafe´

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…

We love putting our great breads together with the finest, fresh ingredients we can find to try and create something special everyday. We use local, artisanal products in all our bakeries, supporting producers who share our love of quality and integrity. From stone-ground flour, to Karoo olives, award-winning boerenkaas, free-range eggs and farm-fresh produce. So come by one of our stores and pick up breads and pastries fresh out of the oven, or linger a while and enjoy a meal with us. We loved making it, and we hope you can taste the passion.

Located in heart of the buzzing the Vn A Waterfront, Velo Tello makes a great spot to stop for breakfast or lunch. There is bike parking scattered around the Waterfront, but if the weather is fine you are welcome to park your bike next to the outside seating area and take in the sights and sounds while you dine al fresco.
