Loved these two things at Gio-Bean. Went there every day for coffee and pastries. When we came back around after our walk, the barista was taking in his sign - he gave us the thumbs up for holding their coffee cups. I would most definitely go there again. Too bad they close in the late afternoon. Friendly Barista makes it... More

This little Italian hide-away is neatly tucked into the heart of the cultural district. In it you will be delighted to find some of the best coffee in the world. The owner, Gio, is world renowned...and not only does he add excitement to your day but he adds it to his coffee as well. Bon appetite!

Staff is genuinely friendly and kind and I've had wonderful experiences coming in with my babe. Breast feeding friendly! Make my experience with my toddler easy and enjoyable and served soup to my table as they could see I have my hands full! Excellent service!

I go here when in town for work. Service excellent, quality of drink excellent. Prices high. Have been charged extra for ordering decaf, this comes across as cheap. Really like the end products!

If you want quality food, good service and great coffee, this coffee/lunch/sweet treat shop has it. There is seating outside for warm days. Gio even has water outside for your dog.

Gio is the best, friendly, happy and always makes a point of speaking to everyone. Great staff!! Best coffee and desserts in Kelowna. You will never be disappointed and they have a great patio for when the weather is suitable to sit outside. They even made a HAPPY video...

You won't be disappointed by Gio's coffee, especially if ask for a latte or cappuccino! Just be warned, there can be quite a line up first thing in the morning as many locals, business people and police officers stop by for their morning coffee. But that's only because this is such an excellent place!

Just do it! Perfect cappucino, super smooth and not bitter. Best service I've experienced in a LONG time. Very rarely will I order a tuna sandwich but was awesome hearty, comes with side if veggies and tortilla chips.
