This is a really friendly place where we had the best coffee during our mini break in Shropshire. Breakfast - thick slices of toast, egg and bacon muffin, was delicious. The ice creams looked good, we will try them next visit.

We are blessed in Bridgnorth by a number of nice places to snack and enjoy the fineries of ice-cream and a lite bite, but none like the quality of Giovanni's. Sam and her well honed team provide an excellent service. Nothing is too much trouble. Their politeness knows no bounds. My visits are all well remembered.....Thank you xx

Best coffee in the town. We like the egg and bacon muffins, and they will make the bacon well done if you ask. Yummy ice cream too. Very friendly service and friendly atmosphere - strangers talk to each other sometimes. We appreciate the complimentary biscuits while waiting for the fresh food, and the newspapers.
