Called in for lunch, a little concerned as totally empty. Shouldn't have worried as possibly the best paninis ever. And as a bonus a super nutty biscuit supplied with a pot of tea. Top marks.

Giovanni's is a regular haunt for us and we now find ourselves visiting most weekends come rain or shine. The ice cream is divine, the coffee is the best in town and the hot chocolate with ice cream actually in it is something I dream about, especially in the winter months.

Sam who runs the place makes everyone feel so welcome that she has created a true community hub. You can't eat here without making friends and enjoying the local conversation! I also recommend the Lemon Meringue ice cream and all the other flavours too!

Visited Giovanni's on bank holiday Easter weekend, so it was quite busy in the cafe! However there were lots of flavours of ice cream left, and we were served very promptly. The staff were very helpful and friendly, the ice cream was delicious and we will definitely visit again for a lunch time bite to eat.
