Staff was very friendly but I like to have the option of drip which they didn't have. My Americano was weak.

Latte and coffee with a shot of espresso. Staff is very friendly and efficient. I found the food this time around and there is a mix of sandwiches and scones and muffins. Pulp fiction, third space and giobeans are my favourite locations in Kelowna for coffee.

I'm lucky I found Giobean as I was missing good coffee during my stay in Kelowna. I had a double cortado and it was made to perfection. We also shared a cream croissant and it was very good with fluffy layers of buttery goodness. The owner officiated behind the counter and one felt very welcome. I'll go back to this... More

Not only is this a place that serves great coffee but it provides a friendly and welcoming environment.The location is great for business meetings as well as meeting friends after or before a lovely walk in downtown Kelowna.

Near Delta Grand. Lovey fresh sandwhiches with Italian coffee. Came with an Italian accented server, although not sure the accent was authentic, but it was a nice try. Very friendly

With new coffee shops popping up on every corner in every city somehow the focus seems to be getting lost. GOOD COFFEE!! It's alarming how many so called coffee shops can't master the basics. But not at Giobean. Arguably the best coffee you'll get in all of Kelowna. Your coffee will almost always be prepared by the owner himself (Gio)... More

This coffee shop/eatery is located near the Delta Okanagan in Kelowna. Simply put, it has always served me great coffee and muffins on several occasions on my recent visits to Kelowna. The owner is very hands on, experienced and runs a professional business with high standards in my view. I'm very happy to give this venue my custom whenever I... More

Nice enough place with a good location. Parking might be tough if you are trying to drop in. Coffee is very good with a price tag to match. Better then the chains and some friendly staff. Didn't see a big selection of food other then the gelato but maybe I overlooked something.
