Vovo Telo has become something of an icon in South Africa. There are now a total of 14 Vovo Telo bakeries across the country, but the original is the flagship store in Port Elizabeth. Located in the fashionable Richmond Hill area of the city, Vovo Telo began with Matt Repton, who was inspired by watching local bakers creating fantastic quality bread whilst on a holiday to Madagascar. Vovo Telo offers customers a relaxed and sophisticated culinary experience founded upon using the finest fresh ingredients and allowing diners to watch the bakers at work. The quality of the breads, pastries, pizzas, rolls and coffee on offer is famously high and the passion and care put into the food shines through in every meal. If you are looking for the ideal place for lunch then be sure to drop in.
Crossways Country Kitchen is located in a rural setting just outside Port Elizabeth on the coast road towards Jeffrey’s Bay. The food on offer is well worth the trip and has attracted TV crews and a growing following amongst foodies. The restaurant is part of an eco-friendly farm village, with the food being prepared by chef Trevor Steyn whose previous experience includes working for Gordon Ramsey at his flagship restaurant in Chelsea, London. All of the food and condiments on the menu are grown or prepared within the farm village to be completely sustainable and environmentally friendly. You can also purchase freshly baked bread, vegetables and other first-rate produce to take away with you.
