After reading the positive reviews on this small cafe, my husband and I decided to have breakfast at Cippy's one morning. We are used to small, mom-and-pop out-of-the-way places and usually enjoy them. I ordered 2 eggs over-hard and my husband ordered the French toast, a specialty according to the menu. While my eggs were cooked fine, I never got my toast and the bacon was very fatty. My husband's French toast was soggy in the middle and definitely not the best. Our visit was mid-July during the record heat wave. There was an air conditioner running, but it was stiflingly hot inside the cafe at 9am. When it was time to pay, we realized THIS IS A CASH ONLY cafe! Cippy had added up our bill incorrectly, then corrected it with no apology. He did let us pay with US dollars (but shorted us $1 in the process). We decided not to argue about it, and so did not leave a tip. Then to our surprise, our waitress "Marie" came out into the parking lot and knocked on our car window. She wanted to know if we had left a tip. Sheepishly, we told her no and apologized. She said she just had to ask because Cippy often cheats her out of her share of the tips that people leave on the table. So we gave her $3 which she didn't want to take, but we insisted. This was a very strange experience and rather sad. I'm sure Cippy was a great cook at one time, but I think it might be time to hang up the apron. Sorry Cippy, I cannot recommend that anyone go your cafe.
