“Busy busy with good reason”
Reviewed February 2, 2013

Never mind the coffee...... The deli has delicious food to be eaten there or for take away a small store with a huge selection. The turnover must be good, so you feel like the food is fresh. Ready made sandwiches or sandwiches made on request. So popular, people everywhere! Worth the experience!

“Luscious latte! Melt in your mouth pastries!”
Reviewed February 2, 2013 via mobile

Busy coffee bar on the main road in Green Point serves up the best lattes in Cape Town. The baristas are fast and friendly and the neighborhood joint feel is evident as they interact with tourists and regulars alike. Be sue to try the excellent pastries especially the chocolate croissants..... Amazing. The attached Deli also has great take away food for a picnic at the beach.......

“Let the day start with ristretto in Giovanni's”
Reviewed January 20, 2013

Once you start your day at Giovanni's, you will always come back for more. Not only coffee, but breakfast, lunch, and you can even buy some food for dinner. Watch the traffic passing by, sip your ristretto and let the day start with smell of freshly bakes pastries and delicious coffee. Hm, I would love to go back to Giovanni's...
