My Daughter and I enjoyed a good breakfast at Sips while we were on vacation. Pancakes and Omelettes were very good . Service was prompt even though the place was packed. I would definitely return.

Ate here twice during our week-long stay. Service gets really shaky when it's busy, but food is good, and coffee is (as everyone says) the best in town, which I have to say, at the risk of sounding cranky, is not saying much.

If you want to good meal in a quaint little place in Southwest Harbor, Maine - Sips is the place. I had a great breakfast there. Good food and comfortable atmosphere. I hope to go back when I am in the area again.

This restaurant was noisy. The food was good, but not very good. Service was fine. It just failed to impress me. It was fine, just nothing special to me.

My family & I ate at Sips on several mornings; it is located conveniently in downtown Southwest Habour; the food is affordable gourmet; the blue berry crepes are personal favorites. The organic coffees are delicious. The service, friendly atmosphere, and decor is relaxing. Enjoy Sips!!!!

For the most part, the food is pretty good at Sips and we really like the service and casual atmosphere. We're just not fans of the live music there and have decided it's better to go for lunch or call ahead before dinner. The music, even the acoustic musicians, are often just too loud for such a small space and... More

Very accommodating, great food, friendly staff. Got into town late and most places weren't serving but they were kind enough to stay open while we had a bite.

Good food and friendly service. My son and I stopped in to watch the MLB All Star Game (our rental house did not carry the tv channel) and they happily turned the TV on at the bar for us to watch. Although the game went past closing time, they let us sit there while the closed up and cleaned up...... More

We felt Sips was a good basic breakfast spot last year for our bagel sandwiches and oatmeal while on vacation, and went again today. I tried the fancy meatloaf omlet with onion compote, and my husband had the same egg and cheese bagel as he did last year. While we were waited on fairly fast, the waiter seemed new and... More
