The service industry, especially in my city, could learn some things from Gio Lauretta! He is passionate about his business and it shows. Customers mean something to him and aren't just his paycheque. His coffee is full flavoured and rich. He has his staff trained well and everyone greets you with a genuine smile and excellent service.

When we are out and about and have a craving for creamy, delicious, home made hot chocolate we come here. Made fresh on the spot, and fast and friendly service too.

Gio has the best coffee and the best service. He is a stickler about his coffee, the taste and the way it is made. He has done a lot of research on coffee and his product is the best in Kelowna. He cares about his customers and it shows.

Consistently the best latte in Kelowna. Thick and creamy with appropriate attitude. Love their scones, too. Best I've had (get 'em early -- they sell out fast!

If you are ever in DT Kelowna and love coffee, this place will easily crush Starbucks anytime!!! This is a traditional Italian coffee shop with great staff on hand and good sandwiches. The espresso's are very intense in rich flavours and the crema is immaculate!!! I needed a sandwich so I played it safe and ordered a smoked salmon sandwich,... More

A super Italian coffee shop attached to the front of the Grand Okanagan Resort. I snuck out of the "convention" multiple times for a delicious real (vs SB in the lobby) cappuccino.

We routinely stop in on Sunday morning for a coffee; great coffee, great location. Close to the boardwalk and across from the Art Gallery. They have sandwiches and lots of pastries and in the summer their gelato is to die for. Great place to meet friends for coffee.
