Fantastic coffee - but sometimes a bit noisy to sit and chat - I usally get my coffee to go...

I"m there approximatly 4-5 times per year. The coffe is great as is the attitude and service of the staff. My only complaint is that if I'm wanting to have a quiet undistracted conversation with a friend, sometimes it seems a bit noisy. But then, it's not dull!

I really enjoy the atmosphere, friendliness and the espresso is fantastic. The snacks, as well as the sandwiches are also amazingly good. I always feel very welcome, and appreciated! It is a bit out of my way but since I recently stopped in to try, I have been back daily!

I like the speciality coffee and the home baking - both unfortunately very delicious! Favourites are the coconut-topped banana bread and the Amaretto Latte.

Wonderful coffee. And the scones are to die for. Giovani and his staff make each customer feel at home. Our fave coffee place in town.

If you're in downtown Kelowna and need a true Italian espresso fix, this is the place to go. The coffee and treats here, are just excellent, right down to the "Ciao!" from the barista as you walk out the door. Excellent! Be aware, GioBean will likely be busy. Give yourself 5 minutes to grab a coffee. Worth the wait.

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.

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.
