A great cup of coffee served with Italian pride. We enjoyed sitting under the linden trees sipping our coffees, a truly relaxing start to a vacation morning. The baked goods are better than average, I loved the buttery cherry scone and the sandwiches are good for picnics. I strongly recommend Gio's.

This place is okay, and popular with tourists. The coffee is fine, but the food wasn't so good the day we went. The bread was kind of stale, and the fillings nothing to write home about. We were hoping for paninis, but there were just the sandwiches in the fridge. The patio is nice, however. If you are looking for... More

We were told to try a place called Tim Hortins and we ended up getting a good laugh, then the Delta staff recommended Gio Bean and Canada redeemed itself. The owner made the coffee himself and thanked us! What a great start to a great day in Kelowna.

Had a chai latte (not the best i've had) and a cherry scone that was delicious. A good stop to get a snack =)

Food and coffee are decent but very pricy. Although, they do have the best gelato that's worth the try.

The coffee & pastries are great and the outside tables are perfect for relaxing while watching the world go by! The staff are friendly and always smiling. Once we found it, we went everyday!

Always a very friendly place to meet friends for some of the best types of coffee in town. Gio will greet you like a true Italian does. It should be considered as a small piece of Italy in downtown Kelowna!

Very good coffee and great pastries for breakfast. I have been going to Gio Bean since they were in their original location further down the street. The owner is always friendly and always seems to be there. Easy to find. I guarantee if World Cup soccer is on TV it will be on at Gio Bean. Nice to see him... More

We had our daily latte here as well as paninis and delectable desserts! The lattes were top rate! Great flavour, smooth and strong. The latte art was excellent as well. Add to that the expertise of the owner and his helpful advice on the Breville Coffee Makers and the whole experience was delicious and special! We couldn't imagine a place... More
