“poor imitation”
Reviewed 8 December 2013

Very disappointed after reading positive reviews as I was expecting a well polished interior, which left a lot to be desired. The well acclaimed coffee was nice, however 'world renowned'? I didn't bother to buy any of the food as it looked pretty ordinary and didn't seem to be 'freshly made'. Just seemed to be a poor imitation of a well known London coffee house.

“A fantastic independent coffee shop”
Reviewed 1 December 2013 via mobile

A comfortable, relaxed atmosphere. The staff are very friendly and provide excellent service, the coffee is square mile and is absolutely delicious, one of the best I have ever tasted. They serve tasty fresh food too.
When i am next in Leamington I will definitely go again.

“Takes coffee to another level”
Reviewed 12 November 2013

The espresso served at Sip is rich, intense, fruity and full of flavour. Along with hair dressers Leamington seems to be full of coffee shops; including Shires Retail Park there's 3 Costa's, 3 Nero's and 3 Starbucks. But there's also a good number of independents which I prefer to support and Sip is one of the most recent to open.

The interior is spacious with a nice contemporary design and good background music that's not too loud. The coffee beans are supplied by Square Mile, and tea from TeaPigs which I've yet to try. The staff are friendly and really seem to care about producing the best quality product. Not tried the food yet but there's a tasty looking selection of cakes, sandwiches and paninis. And free wifi which I guess is a must these days.

Most espressos I've had pretty much have the same bitter taste. It might be a bit over the top to say but I never knew an espresso could taste so good.

First visited in October and several times since.
