The location and employees are exemplary. The coffee was ok. Take that with a grain of salt as I do not drink coffee often. But my coworker, who is a connoisseur, said it was not very good.

Just go there and support the small guy. You should know this is the right thing to do especially when the coffee is soooo much better.

I had A difficult time finding a breakfast suitable for a vegan diet in San Antonio. Fortunately, Sip was around the corner from my hotel. They served me granola with fresh berries, and a pitcher of almond milk. They also have fresh juices. If you're looking for something with meat or dairy though, they have plenty of creative, interesting, and... More

The chai was bearly warm and just made. It was easily drinkable not what I wanted for a hot beverage. Not sure I will return with the choice of other... More

This is a must stop if you want a great cup of coffee and sandwich or snack. Located directly across the street from the largest coffee chain in the country, this is the better choice. Try the Sexy, egg, bacon, avo, on a parker house roll.

For those who like their coffee (and I'm not talking about Starbucks) this is a 'must stop'. The coffee is amazing, we became frequent customers and after 1 day the staff remembered our coffee order. The pastries are delivered fresh every day and are delightful. Prices are very reasonable and they offer soy and almond milk.

Croissants were fresh and buttery. Sandwich was very filling. they also have salads, smoothies and healthy options if you want to stay away from carbs. I've been coming to this shop every... More

The coffee is amazing...trust me. My cousin had the Homemade Apple Cider. It was delicious. It was served with a foamy head....awesome presentation. The croissant was butttery and delicious as was the blueberry lemon twist cookie. The peanut butter cookie is good too. The folks there are nice and the cafe has a very warm charm to it. The sofa...
