Cute and Cozy Cafe - Edit

Tip And Sip Cafe is a great little spot with some fantastic vegan options. I tried the tofu scramble with home fries and it was delicious. My boyfriend, who does eat meat, got an omelette and home fries and said they were incredible!

What stands out the most is the warm, friendly, genuine customer service you receive there. The gentleman my boyfriend and I met, who served us, was happy to answer all of our questions and was really a genuine man. Both my boyfriend and I work in the service/customer service industry and our standards are pretty high. He exceeded them.
I would give it 5 stars if the website let me (you can only 5 star a fully vegan menu).
A must try if you're in the area!

Pros: Great menu options for vegan/vegetarian/omni, Incredible service, Cute and cozy atmosphere

Great Service and growing vegan menu!! - Edit

The two souls working here were extremely friendly and took their time to get everyone’s details. I tried the BLT, fries, and the veggie burger were delicious, the tofu bacun was a great addition. They want to try making a vegan waffle if enough people are interested :-)

Pros: Good meal value, Nice cafe atmosphere, Good service and very friendly

Cons: Need more vegan options

such a cute cafe - Edit

I love this place! The people are so friendly and accommodating. The prices were super reasonable.

I ordered the BLT and a hot drink (a London Fog), which were both delicious. I would highly recommend trying their food! Also, it's supporting a local business that has fair-trade coffee and good people.

A new vegan friendly spot - Edit

While Tip & Sip cafe has been there for a while they are getting more vegan friendly!

Soya or Almond milk are available for drinks at NO additional cost. Also carry Earth Balance and vegan mayo.

Owners really want you to have a great experience while you're there and the food shows it.

Love the vegan BLT on a plain bagel. It is made with tofu they marinate and a little drizzle of maple syrup. Try it with homefries and you'll be satisfied way past lunch time.

Curry with rice or the vegan chili make a very hearty meal.

They also serve a local hot sauce that is vegan.

Looking forward to see what other options they come up with.

Pros: Huge portions, Vegan and Omni friendly

Cons: Busy between 10:30 - 11 and 12-12:30 with kids, No dessert options yet

Great to see some vegan options! - Edit

The menu at a first glance seems very meat oriented, but if you ask you are given the vegan options that they have, which include tofu scramble, veggie burgers/sandwiches which have veggie meats and vegan mayo, and they also have dairy-free milks available at no extra charge which is a nice change. All their gravy is vegan, even for the meat dishes. I found the prices reasonable especially considering the coffee is fair trade. The vegan chai tea latte with soya milk is delicious! Nice cozy atmosphere inside, and take out available too. The staff are very friendly and personable. I've really enjoyed my 2 visits and look forward to going back again.

Great Find Great People - Edit

Make sure you ask for the "secret vegan menu" and there will be many options for you. Went here for breakfast and enjoyed tofu scramble, Vegan BLT, delicious lentil soup and a wonderful atmosphere.

Wonderful people working here made it an even more enjoyable experience.
