Always full / not surprised

Great coffee and fresh sandwich every time you come.What more could one ask for from a coffee shop. Cake that you can't refuse imported sweets .This is my favourite coffe spot in CapeTown and I highly recommend it to all that have not been there.

Instead of buying ready made meals from high end supermarkets, I go to Giovanni's. I find so much variety and also discover amazing ways to eat vegetables such as with their cauliflower and kale mash. I love the quality of their food. I tried almost everything because I buy from them a lot. Sometimes I get vegetable sides to add... More

This one must be the best deli catering for the flatdwellers in greenpoint and area. A wide selection of freshly dishes with no additives at a reasonable price. good coffee and you could spent your last money

Gio's has the deli, the light meals, the take-home meal for one (or two), the emergency chocolates or champagne... but most of all it set the standard for good coffee in Cape Town for as long as I can remember. This is the place where I ground myself if I've been away from Cape Town for a while. Pop in,... More

Giovanni's is your go-to for luxury deli foods like caviar, truffle oil etc, picnic foods like salads and fresh rolls, and imported goods.

Hotel recommended Giovanni’s for a mid-morning breakfast. Well, they did serve coffee, but the balance of the food is deli food and not like the delis in NYC, New Orleans, Chicago, etc. No a big variety of food to select from. The eating area in the deli is made up of a few benches and stools and large planks of... More
