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!

This is ALWAYS a stop for us in Effingham. From delicious, creamy soups in fresh, sourdough bread bowls to stacked club sandwiches to amazing paninis, there is something here to satisfy you. And, they have the hummus plate with tortilla chips and fresh veggies for that vegetarian in your family, too! The coffees are delicious, but they also have a... More

Two different days this week I have called to place an order for pick up--and NEITHER day did they bother answering the phone. Yes, they were open, yes, I doublechecked the phone number...but it just rang and rang and rang. Also, they are a bit pricey and some of the staff is quite snooty.Guess they think they are too good... More
