Stepping into this hip location, you definitely might think you made a mistake, that you’ve entered some sort of specialty boutique, but don’t let the Somali masks and giant red and black squares scare you off—this is as good a coffee shop as any during the day. It just so happens they make that switch to bar and lounge somewhere between noon and midnight. That said, Sip is packed on the weekends with those same Columbia students who were quietly scribbling here during the week.
