Our COVID-19 Guidelines
We are open Tuesdays through Saturdays from 8.00 am to 1.00 pm, and Sundays from 8.00 am to 11.00 am.

Cocoa Bean Geneva is at the Markets every weekend
Through the Fall, you can find us every weekend at two local outdoor Markets.
On Saturdays, the Batavia Farmers’ Market is on North River Street in Batavia from 8.00am to noon.
On Sundays, the Geneva French Market is at South Street and Fourth Street in Geneva from 9.00am to 2.00pm.
You’ll find so many of your favorites at Cocoa Bean at the Market: plain, chocolate and almond croissants; cherry and apple turnovers; monkey bread; coconut macaroons; gluten-free almond blueberry coffee cake; granola, and Kouign Amman.
And as a special treat for our Geneva customers, we feature generous slices of our extra-delicious thick-crust pizza. We’ve got your cheese pizza and we’ve got your sausage pizza. But we’ve only got it after 10.30am or so, and it goes fast!
