We started with the typical, but delicious, clam chowder and pea soup, then enjoyed stuffed halibut and curried chicken crepes. Sips has a warm, cozy ambiance, a well-trained staff and exceptionally creative offerings.

We ate breakfast here twice during our stay on Mt. Desert Island. The food, service and never-ending coffee were all superior!! The staff is warm and friendly. The decor is truly charming. Try the blue berry pancakes when you go.
