Port Elizabeth

the mother of vovo telo


I’ve finally gotten around to blogging bits of my holiday. We were staying at Kenton-on-sea, but did a one night stint in Jbay, and passed through PE.

While in PE we decided we HAD to go check out the original Vovo Telo, being sold to famous brands, they’re going to start popping up all over Joburg, but the cookie cutter model can’t compare to the gorgeous and charming original.

It’s situated in Richmond Hill, a growing creative and trendy neighborhood in PE (that used to be a bad kind of neighborhood but is cleaning up real nice!) .. When driving around the streets of Richmond Hill, you almost feel like you’re more in Notting Hill than South Africa. Wide open streets, clean, colourful pastel colonial style houses, sweet independent businesses. I really though it was quite a find! Vovo is in this gorgeous house on the corner below.

so sweet to see their logo was inspired by this brookylace.

French brioche with berry compote and Marscopone.

Richmond hill, you’re A Okay in our books, we’ll definitely be back. x
