A great Italian coffee house. The coffee.... and tea is awesome. The service is personal and you always run into someone you know or meet up with someone new. The ambiance is fabulous in the summer, with the patio the place to be. It is even great in the winter with the tables usually full. If you cycle, there is... More

We stayed at a hotel nearby and grabbed coffee and few times as well as had lunch. Everything is amazing! Very nice patio seating as well as tables indoors. This place was recommended to us and we are thankful for the tip.

Enjoyed an early morning coffee here. The coffee was great and the patio was lovely. My only complaint is the very small food selection.

I go here often for my coffee & the service is exceptional. The patio on warmer days is great for people watching or just reading a paper, while enjoying that delicious latte. The staff are always friendly & helpful. I often meet my family from Lake country here as well & they are also a fan of giobean. Try their... More

The people are always very helpful when I visit Giobean, but as the title insinuates, their mango gelato is FANTASTIC. Actually, all of their gelato is great; you can really taste the fresh fruit and ingredients that make it so special to Giobean. You will be missing out if you don't include Giobean in your downtown visit.

Great stop, great coffee, great owner. Nice afternoon treat. Gio is so welcoming and kind to all his customers. The coffee is exceptional and it's neat to people watch from the patio.
