Best coffee in Kelowna!

Giobean is by far the best place to get a cup of coffee or gelato in Kelowna. I just adore enjoying a cup there or taking on to go and sipping it while walking along the water. I have cravings for the Italian gelato; it is incredible! The staff are also wonderful!!!

Coffee drinks here are delicious, beautifully crafted. Italian gelato also served and some seriously yummy looking pastries and scones. I'll be having the raisin scone tomorrow. Very popular coffee shop at the base of the Okanagan Grand.

Gio has built the most amazing Italian coffee shop I've ever visited. And I've been to Italy. The experience is great. Always steady there but never so busy the service suffers. The coffee is made perfectly, with the hand of an artist. Simona was very fun and friendly at the Gelato bar, and was it ever delicious. The whole experience... More

Gio is an Italian guy, he loves his coffee and he loves his customers. The match makes for the best authentic Italian coffee shop in the city. You will most likely find him at the espresso machine and get his decades of experience in producing the coffee just like you were in old Italy. Go and enjoy. You may see... More

Great coffee shop just steps outside the Delta Okanagan hotel on the lake in Kelowna. They also have fresh squeezed OJ daily, which was very tasty! A friend praised the Americano, so I had one and it was so good I went back the next day! Highly recommended!

A small group of friends stopped here for a cool treat on a hot day and the gelato is quite good but the portions are very small in relation to the prices.

Our favourite coffee (and scone!!) spot in Kelowna! The coffee is superb and the treats are too! We enjoy strolling to the downtown location and have also made a few stops in the medical building on Lanfranco!! The staff are always courteous and pleasant ... and the young woman at the Lanfranco location is really a delight! Will be stocking... More

Gi0bean is by far the most magnificent coffee within British Columbia. Giovanni ensures the roast of his beans is 100% perfect each and every time. What you may not know is the amount of time and energy himself and his family have dedicated to this business since moving here from Europe a few years ago. He completely dissembles his espresso...

This was one of the few times where the tripadvisor reviews I had read weren't consistent with my experience. My double espresso here was passable - but by no means did it taste or even look like what it had been touted as here, and on Giobeans own website. Maybe it was just a bad shot? The muffin I had...

My daughter and I visited this great little place for gelato every other day! Quite pricy, but so delicious!
