Had lunch at Vovo today. This restaurant is fairly popular with a good menu. Food is good for breakfast and lunch. However I do not enjoy food served on a board with wax paper.

All pastries are fresh and tasty, absolutely devine. If you love warm, fresh bread, this is the place to be. Lovely atmosphere with friendly people. Freshly baked cakes make this one of my number one places to enjoy coffee/tea with something sweet on the side.

Old style corner coffee shop. Service was good and the food was brilliant. They have a few different items on the menu. I loved the liver pate.

Had Valentines breakfast. The service, food presentation and coffee was great. Really disappointed about the blandness of the food though. And this was in both dishes we ordered. Surprised, as we have heard great things about the place.

Great place for coffee and baked goods. Service was a little slow but the shop was quite busy. As far as I know this is the first of the famous chain of coffee shops.

Enjoyed having breakfast there, very friendly staff and excellent coffee. Wonderful outside sitting. We had to go there by uber and back because we got told its not a good thing to try and walk back to the city centre....
