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.

Be at the door at 7am opening time and you get the owner himself rocking to the Stones. Try his home brew - the Wicked Witch. Wow what a kick to start the day! Hot hot hot.

Okay, I'm a coffee snob - I will go without before I settle for just a cup of java - Giobean is a beautiful full flavored bean and talk about hot! They make their drinks like they should - steaming Hot! Gio (is that your name?) sources his own beans, and has them locally roasted to his specs. Go for... More

Well, for those who don't know it yet. There is "coffee" and then there is Giobean! Hard to decide what to choose, but Mocha Italia is the way to go ... It just doesn't get better than real Italian coffee with chocolate and trimmings. Grazie mille, Gio!

I love nothing better than a great cup of coffee and an inviting atmosphere. Geobeans has that plus more. They make each customer feel like a special friend, and you get to sit in their great courtyard and watch the interesting world of Kelowna walk by.

Service with a smile--outstanding coffee and fresh baked goods ! Attention to detail--nice patio; everything clean including the washrooms. Staff is well trained (add-on pastries anyone; another coffee ? ) and always friendly ! Reasonably priced too~~ time to forgo the depressing coffee store chains !!!

First of all, I absolutely fell in love with the Italian gentleman that served our ice cream! I ordered the pistacio gelato and was delightfully surprised that it actually tasted like the nut and not like almond that so many ice cream and gelato places pass off as pistacio. We also had the Nutella flavor and it was spot on.... More

A little bit of great coffee non-chain as in Vancouver and Edmonton. It's big city specialty coffee in this mid-sized tourist city. You get what you pay for and it is expensive. If you don't drink coffee you'll still pay a lot for alternative drinks. Patio on the street. Good people watching.
