A little pretentious but nonetheless a great deli and i am told the best coffee in the Cape. Come hear to load up with delicious goodies, incl fine pastries and breads for a lovely picnic on any one of Cape Town's lovely - but cold beaches. And if you are too busy, or pooped to cook pick up one of their 'build your own" take away meals, the Italian meals (as you'd expect) are very worthwhile.

Coffee and breakfast here is the only way to start a sunny morning in Cape Town. Then grab the bread of your choice and ask the staff to fill it with the mouthwatering delights of the deli before you set off and explore CT

I have to say if you like coffee you will love Giovanni's... Also they have a wind range of lovely food from the deli. If I had 1 negative thing to say is the seating area is really badly done. Otherwise everything else is amazing ..

Nice for a quick coffee or breakfast. fun to sit outside and watch Cape Town pass you by. Easy take-away dinners are healthy and affordable.

What a blessing. Stayed at Stadium Guest House round the corner from this great establishment. To sit outside under cover, choosing your desired foods to get you going in the morning to winding down a busy day of hustling in Cape Town. Giovanni's is the best choice for food and atmosphere you could ask for at any given time. No rush, pull in and relax, savor the flavors available at your finger tips. You may find it a bit pricey, but I promise that after you have taken the 1st bite, you have forgotten about the minor cost you just paid :-) I recommend any tourist, local or overseas, to go venture to Giovanni's for unforgettable experience.
