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.

Service is always friendly, the atmosphere is cozy, and in the summer the patio is splendid! The treats are yummy and the coffee is excellent! Great meeting spot for any reason! ENJOY!

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.

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
