Sip is a spot to score bubble tea, matcha and small bites.

Yelp users are generally positive about Sip, which currently holds four stars out of 106 reviews on the site.

Yelper Amy N., who reviewed Sip on April 4, wrote, "Drinks are pretty good! I got the aloe matcha, it's a very mellow sweet flavor but not much of a matcha taste. My sister got the matcha milk tea, it's got a smooth matcha taste that I liked."

Yelper Nicole L. wrote, "SIP: Drinks: I've never been a fan of Matcha but their blueberry matcha milk tea is my go to! The blueberry flavor masks the matcha which is probably why I like it and it's super unique!"

Sip is open daily from noon-10pm.
