1038 Canada Place, Vancouver
Advice: Wifi is available, ask for the code.
I found my new favourite café last week and have already visited a couple of times and expect that I will be moving in soon. Giovane is a stylish café, large and spacious with an ever so tempting pastry case where you can order cakes by the slice or by the cake. You’ll find a good selection of Breakfast items along with baked goods, the signature Sugar Bun ($4) sugared sweet bun filled with vanilla pastry cream is absolutely delicious and already popular amongst the café patrons.
You will also find a range of home made pizza, Panini, soups, salads and their own selection of house baked breads. On my most recent visit I had the Lucchese Panini ($9) Grilled chicken, gruyere, sun-dried tomato pesto, garlic aioli served with a house salad; and a Double Espresso ($2.50). There is also a coffee bar on the other side of the café for you to order your 49th Parallel Coffees, tea and baked goods if you didn’t have the need to visit the tempting pastry case/sandwich bar on the other side. The interior of the café is stylish and I like the 50 foot long emporium wall that features an eclectic assortment of local crafts, including origami and culinary items and there is lots of seating at tables as well as at the window.
