Perfect stop for a quick lunch before shopping in Vancouver! Paninis and pasta were both delicious, with kind and courteous service to boot! I recommend sharing a few small pasta bowls and a pizza if visiting in a group.

Came here for Sunday brunch yesterday as we're staying at the Fairmont Pacific Rim and knew they offered great breakfast choices here, so thought we would give them a try for brunch. We were not disappointed. It was very busy as it was cold and raining outside on a Sunday early afternoon. We were able to find seats at a... More

Interesting brunch dishes - very well done. Cosy and non-pretentipus despite being in a world class hotel. Eggs benny variations that are unique but not weird and well executed. Our group enjoyed soup, pizza and grilled cheese- all good. It's higher than average price but I'd recommend for a reliable city meet-up.

Went in the early evening after work with friends. Not too busy so seating was not a problem. Order was delivered quickly to the table after ordering at the counter. Delicious flavors to sandwiches and pasta. Meatball panini was really good - even if it was more like a regular sandwich (how do you squish the meatball in the press?)!

Delicious breakfast options with quality ingredients. Had the eggs benedict, $19, so although not the cheapest definitely worth a visit if you want a decent breakfast during your stay in Vancouver

On a chilly evening, this place was just right for a warm drink and a quick bite to eat. We shared a carrot cake, which was lovely, not too sweet. It's definitely a "share" item though! I like the style of the cafe and the comfortable atmosphere. Staff are friendly and helpful. This is a good meeting spot, as there's... More

Friendly staff! Great place to stop all day for a quick coffee and a snack. Had breakfast here as well. Since we were staying at the hotel, we would pop in for a either a quick coffee and muffin in the morning or sit down and have a hot breakfast of eggs, toast and fruit. Food quality was fantastic!

We were so glad to find Giovane's near our hotel! The specialty coffees (fig-hazelnut, pumpkin spice) and pastries (cherry-chocolate scone, blueberry muffin, tomato-basil scone, nanaimo bar) were all so good that we went back every day during our visit.

In Vancouver on a quick business trip on a cold rainy night, and looking for a warm solo meal in a quiet cafe. Giovane was perfect. Warm and cosy, I received excellent service and was able to sit at the bar (nice for watching passersby). Seats are comfortable, and I ordered the bolognese sauce on the recommendation of the cashier.... More

Have you tried Giovane's specialty coffees? If you haven't, you should. For fall they have a fig hazelnut latte that is so delicious. I also usually order the roasted turkey panini for lunch and it is great. Besides the great food and excellent staff, they also carry cool trinkets, cards, jewelry, gifts, etc. Lots of which are local. They carry... More

Staying in Downtown

Neighborhood Profile
Downtown
Vancouver's business district, the Downtown area is bustling with smartly-dressed folks balancing their lattes and briefcases to and from work. The area's plethora of contemporary commercial, residential, and corporate spaces has bred a landscape of nouveau restaurants, chain cafes, and upmarket shopping options. However, located right on the waterfront of Vancouver's energetic Harbour, Downtown is a also popular public meeting spot, with a massive public library and convention center attracting a bevy of visitors both local and not, as well as a hotspot for the arts, being home to some of Vancouver's most cutting-edge galleries. With behemoth architecture and a professional air, Downtown means business.
