I go for the relaxing, laid back atmosphere and the Southwest Salad...or Santa Fe Wrap. They also display local art and have live music days as well.

This is one of the loveliest places in town. The staff is friendly, and the atmosphere is warm and comfortable. There is a nice menu of fun sandwiches and salads with nothing deep-fried. Great coffee, delicious desserts.

Skip the mermaid and go to sippers. Laid back above average for private coffee shops - local and relaxed. Very good sweets. Nice employees.

We stopped for a bite to eat while traveling on I57. The sandwiches were delicious. The tri-color tortilla chips that come with the sandwich were disappointing.

My parents live in Effingham and I always make sure to stop here when I'm visiting. Effingham has a lot of chain restaurants, so I like this place because it's different and a great atmosphere. They also have healthier options which is a definite plus to me.

One of the best kept secrets in Effingham that everyone knows about. Joe Sippers is a little coffee shop that caters to teens, adults, and seniors. They have unique lunch fare, great coffee and tea products, and a very relaxing atmosphere. They also have a back room for meetings or gatherings.

We visit once a year from Chicago and make this our daily coffee run. It is by far the best coffee we have had. The staff is very friendly and helpful and the atmosphere is adorable. We are already looking forward to coming back next year!
