Had a good latte and an excellent raisin scone. Jam is available for the scone. Decent selection of pastries. A few sandwiches sold but not a large selection. The tomato sandwich looked good.

Giobean is my favourite place to visit when I am in Kelowna. I have never been disappointed with my drink from there. The staff is personable and friendly and the owner Gio is always behind the counter making drinks. One of my favourite places in Kelowna!

Great cup of coffee, done right, very good roast ( I cannot stand over-roasted beans)quick service, very good location for a foot traffic, parking can be challenging in the summer, but most other time is pretty good. Good selection of pastries, and snacks, have not had gelato.

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