Modern Italian Coffee Bar, Giovane Caffé opens up in Toronto!
City Life’s new hotspot is for any café lover and espresso purists. A new Italian café has recently opened in Toronto, called Giovane Caffè. The café is located at the lobby level of the Shangri-La Hotel Toronto. It is inspired by a modern Italian coffee bar that offers a variety of classic Italian drinks. To make it more exciting, they have a caffè speciali section on their menu where they add a twist to some of the more traditional Italian coffee drinks. Some beverages include the conventional espresso, while some of the specialized drinks include Mandorlatte and Marocchino. The café also offers a variety of quick bites such as yogurt and granola and Italian paninis, such as provolone and mortadella, pistachio pesto, arugula and pickled onion. An Italian café is not complete without pastries — the café offers a variety of desserts and sweets, as well.
Giovane Caffè originated in Vancouver and is excited to open its doors to Torontonians and share its unique concept and space full of Italian specialities. In 2004, the name of the café was inspired by a letter placed in Domus magazine. A designer named Enzo Mari placed the ad with a beautifully written letter seeking collaboration with a young entrepreneur, named Giovane Imprenditore. That is how the name Giovane Caffè originated. The café is a part of the growing family of an award-winning Canadian restaurant group, called Kitchen Table. The group emphasizes integrity, simplicity and giving back to the communities in each city that each restaurant or café operates. Giovane Caffè is the first from Kitchen Table to expand outside of Vancouver. There are also plans for a location to open in Seattle in 2022.
The café is the perfect addition to the hustle and bustle of Toronto, as it is designed for quick in-and-out service. If anyone is planning on visiting Giovane Caffè for drinks or to eat, it is open from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m.
