Sip June 2019-86.jpg

Delicious coffee + food since 2004. 


Best friends Rachel and Gretchen opened SiP Coffeebar in 2004, eager to share a love of cooking, baking, and coffee with our favorite Minneapolis neighborhood. From the beginning, our goal has been to provide Northeast with a friendly gathering space that serves delicious, satisfying, fast, and affordable food and coffee. To fill the giant gap left between Northeast’s wonderful sit-down restaurants and that fast food chain, SiP prepares breakfast and lunch options fresh each day as a convenient, healthy option for those living, working, and passing through Northeast. We serve locally roasted, organic, fair-trade coffees and espresso in carefully crafted beverages.

We bake delicious from-scratch muffins, cookies, and bars. Our breakfast options include homemade quiche, breakfast sandwiches, egg burritos, yogurt parfaits, and hot oatmeal. We offer salads (green, pasta, and quinoa), unique and satisfying soups, and a variety of sandwiches that we make fresh each morning using SiPmade spreads, preservative-free deli meats, and locally-made artisan breads. (And several options for gluten free folks!)

SiP loves being a neighborhood gathering space. We encourage our customers to make themselves at home. Come hunker down and get to work, made a little easier with our free wireless internet (and caffeine, of course!). Or find a cozy spot on the couch and watch your kid play with our collection of toys. And if you need to stretch your legs, take a stroll to the new memorial park along the river, visible from our front door.



Where do you get your baked goods?
Here! We crack eggs, measure flour, and fold in ingredients. We make at least 7 kinds of muffin doughs, 3 kinds of cookies, 4 kinds of bars, and more! Can’t you tell by our toned biceps?

Are Rachel and Gretchen sisters?
Nope. We’ve just been friends so long that we’ve adopted each other’s ticks.
