Was having trouble deciding what drink to get. The employee recommended strawberry lemonade smoothie and it was great! Would defiantly go again.

There's interesting art to browse as you wait for your specialty coffee of choice or a cup of tea to brew. Also took home an interesting package of coffee beans for my CA kid - she should remember fam roots in the midwest. It's called Clodhopper and is roasted in house!

Had the Yogurt Parfait, Strawberry Smoothie with Energy Boost Ginseng, Soup of the day Broccoli Cheddar, and Pita Panini w/ chips. It was delicious. There is parking right by the side entrance and the atmosphere is cozy with lots of space. Highly recommend!

My husband and I stopped in here for lunch. We both got the Asian Chicken wrap and loved it. It's a cute place with a chill coffee house vibe. I didn't try the coffee but I would bet it's good. We enjoyed it here so much we tried to go back the following day but it was closed I believe... More

Locally owned coffee shop with amazing coffee, tea, and food. Better food and coffee than Starbucks. I used to go in every day and sit for several hours while waiting on my son to get done with preschool. Relaxed atmosphere. Recommend Joe Sippers to anyone coming through Effingham.

This is really a coffee shop that serves some food. I don't drink coffee, but I DO eat. This food was great. In fact, the turkey/havarti sandwich was a bit too great, there was a bit too much turkey. But for 8.95 you certainly got your money's worth. The smoothies are 100% fruit and delicious. So you don't have to... More

Great place. If you want to go "where the locals go", then check out Joe Sippers. A variety of their own roasted coffee + great food + warm atmosphere = worth the stop!

This place is unique. It is one of my favorite lunch spots in town to eat lunch. My two favorites are the southwest salad and the mozzarella and pesto panini. You also should try the hummus or the black bean salsa. Highly recommend!!

Joe Sipppers has a great selection of coffees & teas to enjoy at the cafe, or beans to take home and brew for yourself. The sandwiches are tasty, the wraps are good, and I especially like the tomato bisque soup. Their colored tortilla chips are a fine addition to their lunches. There are plenty of breakfast goodies too, like muffins... More
