Posts Tagged ‘Giovane Cafe + Wine Bar’

My friend and I had dinner at Gastown and didn’t feel like having dessert at that place. Thinking about tea or dessert place, there weren’t any places near Gastown, coming up to my mind, except cheesecake place. So, we decided to walk a bit further, and I remembered this place cafe.

It was Giovane Cafe + Winebar, located in the Fairmont Pacific Rim hotel. You can find a big yellow “g” sign at the entrance. There are a cafe counter and a deli counter. At the cafe counter, you can order coffee, tea, or pastries, and you can seat and enjoy them.

We ordered from their dessert menu.

Her choice, Sacher Torte

According to Wiki, Sacher Torte is a Viennese specialty. It looked so dense. Raspberry gummy (?) was on top, and the gummy or dense jam was inside the cake, too.

My choice, Classic Tiramisu

I don’t know what “classic” Tiramisu means, but I liked this one. It was so soft and light, so you could eat it in sec! :p

And, I took out this for Collin. This is his favorite. ūüôā

It is nice to know a quiet cafe that opens until late.

So, as I mentioned in the previous post, Collin and I went for lunch. You may already know by now where we go, when we don’t have much time. ūüėČ

Yes, it is Giovane Cafe + Winebar. They are located in the Fairmont Pacific Rim hotel. There are two parts, a cafe counter and a deli counter. At the cafe counter, you can order coffee, tea, or pastries, and at the deli counter, you can order pizza, soup, wine, etc.

We ordered from their deli and bakery menu and shared.

As we felt last time, they were not serving great food any more? The pizza was quite disappointing. It was like a rice cracker, I mean, it was still edible but crunchy, besides it cost $14 now. I don’t want to think this way, but they pre-made and re-heat when we ordered now?

Their pizza was our favorite, and it was still good last October with $12. Going further, it was great about a year ago with $10. Sugar bun was still good.

Collin and I wanted to spend time before he headed to work. As usual, he didn’t have much time, so we went to the place where we know serves fast.

Giovane Cafe + Winebar is located in the Fairmont Pacific Rim hotel. There are two parts, a cafe counter and a deli counter. At the cafe counter, you can order coffee, tea, or pastries, and at the deli counter, you can order pizza, soup, wine, etc.

We ordered from their deli menu. I didn’t feel like eating heavy stuff, so I just wanted soup. He wanted to have sandwiches, so we ordered a Soup and Panini combo.

I had some bite of the panini. It didn’t taste as good as it used to be. Soup was good.
