Sip tea corner... the beginning

Sip tea corner… the beginning



Sip was first created in Yarmouth in 2012 as a loose leaf tea only endeavor. Sip was only a 10′ by 10′ space inside of City Drug Store Pharmachoice but contained over 100 variety of teas from all over the world. With daily tea tastings and mouth to mouth promotion Sip quickly became the tea destination of the region.

In late 2012 Sip was upgraded to a 1000 sqft space inside of City Drug Store Pharmachoice and became Sip Café. We transformed Sip into a European style coffee and tea shop with a wide variety of coffee and tea drinks as well as locally baked goods, fruit smoothies and in-store made gelato. We added a cozy interior sitting area large enough for 20 patrons. We then added a feature rock wall as well as a fireplace to create a warm and welcoming feeling for our visitors. We also began offering free WIFI. Sip’s popularity grew very fast and we started seeing many repeat visitors. As always, consistency and quality is our main objective.

Our new patio area in its infancy



In the summer of 2013 we installed the first outdoor patio in Downtown Yarmouth which received a warm welcome from the local community. We also started hosting local artists who came to play music on our patio and inside Sip at different times during the week and the weekend.




Since 2013, every year Sip was awarded the great honor of being the “Best place to have a coffee” in Yarmouth by the locals through the Best of YAS contest.
