Giovane has really good coffee, only the second place I have found it in Vancouver. Coffee lovers won't be disappointed. We had breakfast here which was good but lukewarm. Would be better if hotter. Slightly spicy but interesting food. Good service.

This is one of the most underrated desert shops in Vancouver. Perhaps because most people think of it more like a coffee shop. Staff are friendly and lots of tasty cakes/pies. As well as good Coffee and snacks/sandwiches. Good luck and enjoy!More

One of the smaller places, I like the fact they can serve coffee in mugs and cups instead of only paper cups. A small gift shop is also part of the place!
