Sipps has a very nice environment. The exterior faces market square while the inner part is very nicely decorated. It’s not a bad place to come and sit with your friends and have a chat. There’s no internet here, and the background radio is quite loud (or sound from the counter while staff prepares for orders). However I don’t think it’s a great coffeehouse. Coffee isn’t very good quality, and dessert isn’t too good either.

The white swirly part was crushed ice that wasn’t mixed well (there’s also a lot of ice on the top). It’s a bit too sweet but at least it doesn’t taste like a diluted drink. However I am very offended by a comment made by one of the staff the other day when a customer asked what matcha was. The staff described it as “it tastes like grass”😯 Perhaps you have mistaken this with barley green?🙄
We were surprised that they gave us a teapot for one order.
Nice tangy fluffy cheese layer. It reminded me the texture of French cheesecake. The crust wasn’t too good. It was very crumbly.
Truffle Chocolate Bar
Again, the crust was bad. The middle layer was creamy and smooth, but it the chocolate flavour wasn’t too intense.
Top: Chocolate Xtreme
Rich choclate with a callebaut chocolate swirl
Bottom: Key Lime Blast
Lime, with a kick!
Sipps had homemade ice cream during summer. It wasn’t nicely churned. The texture was icy ice cream.
