Luckily for me (because my own shop is located in the Cresta Shopping Centre), our mall is the location for the 6th store in Gauteng. I might just spend more time in there than in Tapenade!! I love everything about Vovo Telo – its food (working my way through their menu is an achievable new year’s resolution), its trendy décor, the friendly staff and above all the fact that a franchise manages to be so funky and contemporary. It does not feel like a replica.
Each type of bread (they prepare a huge variety of European style breads including brioche, baguette, rye, sourdough, croissants, pain au chocolat and more) is prepared from stone-ground flour and slow-fermented yeast. All are hand-shaped and baked fresh on the premises each day. You can watch the process from your table since the bakery is situated in a central position in the store.
The coffee is gooood.
