Must visit!

Like the other reviewers, I felt like I was at a café in Italy with my visit to Gio Bean Espresso. The coffee and gelato are fantastic! Ambience can't be beat and the owner takes great pride in his establishment. A stop here is a must during your visit to Kelowna. - Nancy Gordos

This is a great find in Kelowna. The coffee is simply the best ever and the scones are exceptional. The décor is great and the service is always friendly and personal. Do not miss if you are in Kelowna and take some beans home.

Hi, my family and I have been going to Gio since it opened, about 5 years now, and we have noticed that overtime, Gio started on cheaping out with the food selection. I am disgusted by the croissants, leaving a bad taste after I eat couple of bites and also noticed that few of his food items, for example, the... More

I loved good espresso and spicy hot chocolate. From their little shop to the expanded location, the quality never wavered. The pastries are always freshgrade, flavourful and flaky. Staff are friendly and welcoming and the crowd is a testament to the ongoing excellence that is Giobean.

Went to the newly renovated Gio Bean cafe recently. Lovely decor - great job on the reno. You can definitely rely on getting a great, Italian cappuccino - hard to find but always done right here. Their scones are wonderful too! Friendly service and in the Summer their patio is the perfect place to sit. I really enjoy visiting here.... More

I go to Gios for the coffee; not for the food. Over Christmas 2014, Gio had a new coffee machine installed. My first doppio espresso made with the new machine was a revelation. It had a fuller, but softer flavour and texture. Gio said it was more crema. Without a doubt, Gios coffee is amongst the best that I have... More

Great ambiance and excellent coffee made everytime I'm there. A fantastic outdoor patio in the Summertime and the owners are pet friendly & love well behaved dogs. Over active children on the other hand, should be kept on a leash ;-)

Great service provided by the mom and pop style of the owners... while still providing a great coffee scene.

Located down on the pretty waterfront walk area of the Grand Hotel - this is a fine coffee house. Given that coffee places are all over the place, its nice to find one that actually stands out. A mocha here is actually what it should be ... a treat :) ... and the sandwiches / pastries etc. are all nice... More
