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! Always... More

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

We had Sunday breakfast here and found the staff to be very pleasant and helpful. The food was good, with the fruit being excellent. When our order was confused, we were given a large slice of cake with an apology. I thought it was a nice gesture since they were so busy.

One of the first things I always look for whenever I check into a hotel is if there is a good coffee bar nearby. When I learned there's a full service (coffee, pastries, and food) coffee bar within the hotel, I had to check it out immediately. Giovane is located in the ground floor near the front entrance of the... More

Tried their Lavender White chocolate Latte this last trip and it was great, but my usual Skim Milk Latte, no sugar or syrups added is still my favourite. You can taste the amazing espresso they use, and it's perfect. Don't shy away because it's tied to the Fairmont, the price for a latte is no worse than starbucks and the... More

This was our favorite breakfast place while staying at Fairmont Pacific Rim. You have to try their breakfast pizza. Very good coffee and friendly service. Worth the money.

Staying in Downtown

Neighbourhood 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.
