If in CT, Giovannis is a must do. If not for anything else, to experience the vibe and friendly atmosphere. True to it’s soul G caters for locals, visitors and patrons in the best of ways. Deli food is delicious, coffee great, and it is a great people spotting place. Buy take away and/or other goodies and wine. You can also get lovely flowers from the stand outside. Always return when I am in CT!

You can eat in or take ready to eat food home with you. There is a dizzying array of choices and all looked delicious. There are also specialty grocery items available as well. I loved all the cheeses.

We would travel from the West Coast to Giovannis for one simple reason.
If you want the best coffee, make up your own best bread roll with the best fillings, get some ready made meals and or salads, need some wonderful cold meats and cheeses, or olives or gherkins....this is it....and in their grocery section you will find that one exclusive ingredient that you need for your next great meal. There is always something different to find here.
When you find a seat, cause they are always busy, relax with whatever you choose to eat and enjoy, its simply the best.

The orange juice is always fresh and one of my favourites. Try the deli for take away dinners or picnics - the selection is better than woolies and fresh!! If you are eating there, place your order at the deli counter and they bring you your meal and number which you use to pay once you have eaten.
