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

The Café is suitably located in the middle of the Kelowna art district right across the street from the Kelowna art gallery and a few steps from the Prospera arena and the delta grand hotel and Casino.

Although the owner is wonderful, the staff can be somewhat snobby. Our office staff frequent this establishment on a regular basis as it is close to us. However some of us have chosen to go further away to get better value and service. Choices are limited for both coffee and food.

Attended the International Skate Canada in Kelowna. GIO Bean was one of the only cafe's who got behind this event. They had Skate Canada t-shirts on and along with their always great coffee and goodies, it is always a must stop.Great job, they did us proud.

Location was great, just outside the hotel. They had great tasting coffee and prices were reasonable. Sat outside in the patio and enjoyed the sun on a beautiful summer day. Quite a busy place but it was run efficiently so service was quick and courteous.
