The service is fast and the staff are very friendly and inviting. The staff seem to go out of their way and even do a little bit extra to make stopping by a great experience. I don't drink coffee, but I've been told by others that it is very good here- they do have a great selection of teas though... More

Get away from the chain coffee houses and experience real Italian Coffee. Owners Gio, Lucy and staff are always welcoming and service is bar none. Wonderful scones and other pastries and sandwiches are great. Nothing better than sitting on the patio in the summer sun having a great cup of coffee.

I had a VERY good Latte at this small cafe. The roast is clearly custom and not as dark as a Starbuck's roast. This is a very typical Italian-style roast and it really lets the coffee shine though.

Gio knows what he's doing, this is the closest thing to Italy that we have in Kelowna for a cafe. The coffees are done right, the service is always friendly and everything on the menu is good. They have plenty of outdoor seating and it is alway full, the locals love it here! They sell Artisto Gelato which is made... More

There are 2 Gio locations. Downtown you will find their bigger location with lots of awesome pastry and a variety of sandwiches. They have some indoor seating and a patio throughout the warmer months. The owner, Gio, is usually there himself, making the coffees. I find this coffee way richer, smoother and fresher than what I find at the chain... More

Had a good latte and an excellent raisin scone. Jam is available for the scone. Decent selection of pastries. A few sandwiches sold but not a large selection. The tomato sandwich looked good.

Giobean is my favourite place to visit when I am in Kelowna. I have never been disappointed with my drink from there. The staff is personable and friendly and the owner Gio is always behind the counter making drinks. One of my favourite places in Kelowna!
